LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) A volunteer Census worker who made his rounds earlier this week is now accused of returning to a physically handicapped woman's home this weekend and beating her and raping her.
WHAS11's Adrianna Hopkins was in Pekin, Indiana on Sunday where the crime happened, and spoke to the neighbors and friends of both the victim, and the accused.
"I had no reason to be afraid or anything of him, said Debbie Bishop. He was just a nice ordinary person."
That's what Bishop thought last Tuesday when she met Daniel Miller. The self-employed tile-layer and volunteer Census worker drove up her road, stopping at the homes listed on his Census forms.
The two had a short conversation and she answered all of his Census questions.
"He just seemed really nice, he was actually he was over friendly," Bishop said.
But if what Washington County Sheriff's Deputies say about Miller is true, Debbie says she's sorely mistaken.
Police say that same Tuesday, Miller also stopped by Debbie's neighbor's house. Then, that Saturday, at 4:30 in the morning, police say he returned to her neighbor's home, broke in, and beat and raped the 21-year-old physically handicapped woman who lives there with her mother.
"It's not right. She had no choice, you know, said Bishop. You don't do that."
The victim's mother talked to us off-camera, and said while she was sleeping, Miller raped her daughter, then left his clothes in her daughter's room.
A neighbor says Miller then drove around the house as if he was drunk.

Somebody put up a pic of this POS.
Is anyone at all surprised? I’m not.
Someone who was sleazier looking than this with a census badge around his neck come knocking at my Saturday...now I am glad I didnt answer the door
We have one of those in downtown Fort Smith...just a few minutes from me. Judge Isaac Parker made good use of it, LOL.
They should just shoot the guy, I wonder if they run background checks on these folks cause my guess is this guys rap sheet was a mile long. Thanks for endangering us US government.
This guy surely is a nobama voter and registered DIM.
We agree again!
Government census employees raping and beating handicapped woman?
“Hi there, I’m from the government, uh, how many live here with you?...How many in the home now?...Uh..are you alone?”
What an incredibly handsome looking guy !
Background check these people? Not in a million years. They’re volunteers. If one of their workers committed a crime against me, I would sue the gov’t for millions.
“VOLUNTEER” Census Worker? Unpaid? Or has the meaning of ‘volunteer’ been changed, too?
Slimy creep, castrate him and throw him in jail for the rest of his life. I can bet you this is not his first time.
Every member of the United States armed forces is a volunteer.
I suspect you’ll find a fair amount of that.
Around here, census workers were getting $13.87/hour plus 50 cents per mile driven in their personal vehicles. No volunteers, unless this guy was just lying about the census so he could case potential victims.
We were fingerprinted twice by two different people. The FBI definitely checked me.
Society has changed for the worst.
