Oroville Homicide Investigation

Oroville- 11/8/16


On Saturday, 11/5/16 at 9:05am, Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) deputies were dispatched to a home on Sunnybrook Lane in Oroville. While en route, one deputy noticed a car driving away from the scene with the victim, Ramon Becerril, 62, in the passenger seat. The driver of the car informed deputies that Ramon had been in an altercation with his brother, Vincent Becerril, 54, and was in need of medical attention. During the altercation, Ramon was hit in the neck with a metal pipe. Vincent was also hit during the altercation, and was in need of medical attention as well. Both men were taken to Oroville Medical Center where Ramon was pronounced dead. Vincent sustained head trauma as a result of the altercation and was transported to Enloe Medical Center for treatment.


BCSO detectives responded to the scene as well as Oroville Medical Center to investigate. At this time, charges have not been filed against Vincent Becerril. The investigation is ongoing and more information will become available after the autopsy is completed.
