Duncan arrested on murder charges
A Linden Man was arrested and charged with murder last week.
According to a press release provided by the Marion County Sheriffs department, Sandy Duncan was arrested on Thursday, March 29, at his residence in Cass County without incident.
He was transported and booked into the Marion County jail.
After his arraignment, Duncan later posted a pre-set bond of $100,000.00 and was released the same day.
The murder charges are a result of an an incident that occurred in Marion County on Memorial Day, 2017.
Sandy Ray Duncan, 47, of Linden, was charged with the shooting death of his cousin, Danny Duncan, 44, who also lived in southern Cass County.
Both the suspect and the victim, along with the victim’s brother, William Duncan, Jr., were reportedly floating down the Little Cypress River on a frog gigging trip in the early morning hours of May 28, 2017.
Danny Duncan died due to a single gunshot wound.
This incident was first reported as accidental, and circumstances warranted further investigation, which resulted in Sandy Duncan’s indictment by a Marion County Grand Jury.
