On Friday, September 24, 2021, at approximately 9:00 a.m., the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report on Brucewood Road in Graham, N.C., regarding a deceased male found on the side of the road.

Sheriff’s Office investigators were able to identify the victim as Jamel Ramel Haskins (B/M/28) who resided in Durham County. His next of kin has been notified.

Mr. Haskins has been verified as affiliating with gangs in Durham County, and the location of his death appears to be an isolated incident with no known ties to the neighborhood where his body was found.

Preliminary reports indicate that the victim suffered from gunshot wounds sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Detectives are still waiting for results from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, and additional information will be released as it becomes available.

This investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to contact the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office at 336-570-3600 to speak with a member of the Criminal Investigations Division. You may also report anonymously to Alamance County CrimeStoppers at 336-229-7100, alamancecs.org, the P3TIPS App, or the Durham County CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200.

This information was delayed in its release due to the time it took to locate and notify his family.
