Parolee makes 1st court appearance after high-speed chase

FAIRFIELD — A parolee who authorities say cut off and trashed his GPS locator ankle bracelet monitor made his first court appearance Wednesday since he was arrested after a high-speed chase that ended with him wrecking his vehicle.

Brian M. Duvauchelle, 41, was spotted leaving a home on Meadowlark Drive around 11 a.m. Monday. Duvauchelle, a convicted rapist, had been on the lam since January when parole agents discovered he had removed the GPS device he was required to wear as a condition of his being paroled from prison.

Duvauchelle was sent to prison in 2011 for his role in the torture and beating death of 50-year-old Ricky V. Meyi at a 2008 house party in Vallejo. Meyi’s badly burned and decomposed body was found a few weeks after his disappearance in a ditch alongside a dirt road south of Dixon.

A police informant told authorities about where Duvauchelle was hiding out. A special enforcement team of Solano County Sheriff’s Office deputies was waiting for him when he was seen driving away from the home. The deputies tried to make a traffic stop but Duvauchelle had other ideas, taking off on a high-speed chase through Fairfield and into Vacaville with speeds reaching up to 90 mph, according to a press release.

After a few minutes and about six miles, the chase ended abruptly at the corner of Foxboro Parkway and Westgate Drive, where Duvauchelle lost control of his vehicle and plowed into a cinderblock wall. He was arrested and booked into the jail on suspicion of evading police, hit-and-run and violating the terms of his parole.

    I can not understand why a convicted rapist, who also tortured and killed someone was sent to prison in 2011 was out on an ankle monitor to begin with. I've seen much lesser crimes punished much more severely in Solano county. Is the justice "JUST" in this county?

    Exactly! A life was lost, not counting the rape victim/victims, and not 2 years later, he's free,breaking laws again. Only in CALIFORNIA!

    Boy, do we need to get rid of people like him. Sometimes we think too highly of criminals and not enough about the victims. He should have been executed. Period.

    Why was he released at all? Boy, if you rob a bank you will never see the light of day. If you murder someone, you'll get out in a couple of years...

    brian has been throughalot! How pathetic, been thru alot of drugs and alcohol that freakin tweeker. I know who he is and what he's been through which is a whole lotta DRUGS..and NOBODY cares. he is a low life 41 year old and a waste of space. Im sick of people using "what they been through" as a way to condone their behavior. We are taught right and wrong from a young age so dont give me that bull crap. His whole family is messed up! Weird too! Incest is my guess...i mean Brian likes raping people. And believe me when i say i am SURE there is more than one victim. They were probably too doped up to know what even happened. His is a punk and may not have been the one who killed that man, but he is still a murderer. Plus, Brian is too much of a coward to stand up to anyone on his own and without a weapon, even to a female who was probably a buck soaking wet. FACT! EFF your WHOLE family Brian Davauchelle!
