Ex-NFL Player Arrested, Missing Son Found Safe Amid Disturbing Allegations

Former NFL defensive tackle Daniel Muir and his wife, Kristin, were arrested after their 14-year-old son, Bryson, was found safe Wednesday (July 3) following a police investigation into abuse allegations, the Indiana State Police Department confirmed in a news release.

Daniel Muir, 40, was charged with one count of obstruction of justice and one count of domestic battery. Kristin Muir, 38, was charged with one count of obstruction of justice.

Members of the Indiana State Police SWAT team executed search warrants at the Muir’s residence Wednesday morning.

“The operation led to the discovery of Daniel, Kristin, and Bryson Muir at the home,” the department said. “Bryson was the subject of a Silver Alert which was issued on June 28, 2024. Daniel and Kristen Muir were taken into custody without incident and remanded to the Cass County Jail. Bryson Muir, who appeared safe and well, was released to the care and custody of the Cass County Department of Child Services.”

Indiana State Police issued a silver alert for Bryson after he was last seen by relatives driving away from his grandmother’s Ohio home with his mother on June 16. The department said the mother’s vehicle was stopped by local authorities minutes later, at which point the boy was gone.

An investigation was launched by authorities into Daniel and Kristin Muir after the teenager’s grandmother provided officials with a photograph showing Bryson with a blackened and swollen eye. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound teenager was suspected to be in immediate danger.

The Indianapolis Star reported that Daniel Muir and his wife told police they’d bring Bryson to Indianapolis State Police headquarters to prove he was OK, however, “backed out” an hour before the arrangement was set to take place, which authorities claim “signaled an unwillingness to cooperate.”

The Muirs live in Logansport, Indiana, on land owned by the Straitway Truth Ministries, a religious group based in Tennessee that has been accused of being a cult and claims on its website that it is a “nation of Hebrew Israelites who are commandment keepers; obedient to Yah and our savior, Jesus the Christ. We are blessed with a vibrant deliverance ministry and life changing truth from a true Jeremiah 3:15 Pastor.” Former Green Bay Packers defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila was among the former NFL players reported to have renounced his Christian faith and joined Straitway Truth Ministries as part of a Sports Illustrated article published in 2020.

Muir went undrafted in 2007 before signing with the Green Bay Packers as a rookie and later being claimed off waivers by the Indianapolis Colts in 2008. The former Kent State standout started in 27 of 56 total career games for four teams — also including the New York Jets and then-Oakland Raiders — from 2007 to 2013.
