Man suspected of vehicular homicide; 2 accused of assisting

The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On April 19, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office re-arrested Jeremiah L. Duncan, 18, of Moss Bluff, following a Calcasieu Parish Grand Jury indictment of vehicular homicide in connection with a 2011 single car accident in Sulphur that left one person dead.  This charge was upgraded from the original charges of DWI 1st; careless operation; and driving under suspension.

On June 17, 2011, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office responded to the accident at the intersection of Houston River Road and Maurine Drive in Sulphur, where the investigation revealed the car appeared to have run off the road to the right, into the ditch and hitting a culvert. 

Duncan, who was the driver of the car, and his passenger, Rayven N. Adams, 18, were transported to a local hospital where Adams died as a result of her injuries.  Duncan, who suffered non-life threatening injuries, was treated and released, then arrested and booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center.  He was released on a $3,750 bond set by Judge Michael Canaday.

After several attempts to locate Duncan following the Grand Jury indictment, he was arrested without incident on April 19 by CPSO deputies, following a traffic stop in Lake Charles.  He was booked into CCC on a $15,000 bond set by Judge Wilford Carter.

Deputies also arrested Shane P. Foust, 42, and Brandy M. Teel, 34, both of Moss Bluff, acquaintances of Duncan, on April 19, after an investigation revealed they had harbored the fugitive.  When questioned by deputies, Foust and Teel confirmed they were aware Duncan was wanted for vehicular homicide and continued to allow Duncan to live with them.  Both were booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with accessory after the fact (vehicular homicide). 

Judge Wilford Carter set their bonds at $3,500 each.
