Homicide suspect's wheelchair, walking boot found
JANESVILLE--Madison police Tuesday night recovered the wheelchair and walking boot Omar Tavizon-Ramos, 21, of Janesville, was wearing when he fled University Hospital, Madison, after being treated for injuries he suffered in an alcohol-related crash Easter morning that left two Janesville people dead, according to Janesville Police Sgt. Dean Sukus.
They were found on Hancock Street, near a church and a few blocks away from where he got dropped off of a Madison city transit system bus, Sukus said.
Janesville police received this information around 8 p.m. Tuesday night from Madison police who are now checking homeless shelters in the area to see if anyone has seen Tavizon-Ramos, Sukus said.
Janesville police decided not to guard Tavizon-Ramos because they thought his injuries would prevent him from fleeing, according to Deputy Chief Dan Davis.
Tavizon-Ramos is accused of killing Jeffery S. Bauer, 19, of Janesville and his grandmother, Margaret Worden, 61, of Janesville after an early-morning crash April 24 at Racine Street and Center Avenue in Janesville.
Warrants have been requested to arrest Tavizon-Ramos for two charges of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. The Rock County District Attorney’s Office has not filed charges against Tavizon-Ramos.
