On April 16, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested Murry J. “Joey” Duncan, 45, a Junior High Special Education teacher at Mt. Hermon, and charged him with Pornography Involving Juveniles.
While still in jail, Duncan was arrested again on May 1 for two counts of Molestation of a Juvenile which occurred in East Baton Rouge Parish. He was transported to the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison for booking there.
On May 18, Duncan was transported back to Washington Parish. He was arrested again for one count of Molestation of a Juvenile, two counts of Video Voyeurism and 116 counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles. Bond for those charges was set at $50,000 which is in addition to his previous bonds of $50,000 and $350,000. After his arrest and booking in Washington Parish on May 19, Duncan was transported back to the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison for safekeeping.
Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal commented on the additional charges against Duncan. “The new charges are the result of hard work by Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office investigators and a forensically trained deputy who did a thorough forensic review of Duncan’s computer and thumb drives. We are fortunate to have someone on our staff who is certified to do forensic computer searches. The case against Duncan is strong and solid. I expect he will be out of circulation for a very long time.”
Even with additional arrests, the investigation is ongoing. If any parent, guardian, teacher or other responsible adult is aware of the possible exploitation of any child by Murry Duncan or any other person, they are asked to contact the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office at (985) 839-3434.
