Sheriff Releases Statement Following Guilty Verdict

Doran Duncan Found Guilty of Felony Murder, Weapons Charges and Driving While Intoxicated After May 2018 Crash That Took George Ramos Life

28 year old Doran Duncan was traveling at more than 100 miles per hour on M-13, fleeing from police, when he smashed into the car driven by Owosso resident, George Ramos.  Ramos, 84, died in the crash.  The pursuit began in rural Saginaw County and continued into Shiawassee County.  The crash happened at the M-13/I-69 interchange south of the village of Lennon.

Duncan was charged on six separate counts, including felony murder, weapons charges and driving while intoxicated.  He was found guilty on all counts.

Shiawasssee County Sheriff Brian BeGole issued the following statement after the jury's verdict was announced:

"The Shiawassee County Sheriff's Office would like to applaud the jury's recent guilty verdict on all charges against Doran Tashawn Duncan in the 35th Circuit Court trial. Our hearts continue to go out to the Ramos family during this difficult time.

The Sheriff's Office and the Prosecutor's Office were always confident that our actions were appropriate when rendering the discovered weapon safe and securing it as evidence.

It is shameful to know that the individuals operating several social media sites and hiding themselves behind anonymity used this tragedy as an opportunity for political gain and to
ersonal agenda. Their personal character attacks against the Sheriff's Office and devoted members of our staff are extremely deceitful, misleading and in many cases, outright lies. Sadly, as the election year approaches, this unethical behavior will undoubtedly continue.

I would like to urge everyone not to be manipulated by the false information these people are posting and to please seek out the real and complete truth. I continue to have an open-door policy and welcome any questions anyone may have."
