Rockford Scanner: Murder In South Beloit

  • by



Please see below update from Sheriff Winnebago County about a joint death investigation that started on April 14, 2020.

On April 14, 2020, at approximately 6:30pm, Beloit Police Officers responded to the 1600 block of Royce Avenue where they located the body of a deceased male. The male, later identified as Jwan J. Lamon, 18 of Janesville, Wisconsin, was the victim of a homicide. An autopsy, subsequently conducted by the Rock County Coroner’s Office determined that Mr. Lamon died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.

Beloit Police Detectives enlisted the help of the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Detective Bureau after evidence suggested that the homicide did not occur in Beloit. Detectives from both agencies determined that the victim, Mr. Lamon, was killed on April 9, 2020, in the 1500 block of Fischer Road in South Beloit. Davonte L. Hyler, 28, was developed as a suspect.

The investigation was reviewed by the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office and the following charges were authorized. On July 1, 2020, Hyler, who is currently in custody at the Rock County Jail, was served a warrant on these charges.

Davonte L. Hyler, (DOB: 2/7/1992) of Beloit, Wisconsin

– First Degree Murder (Six Counts)

The charges are merely allegations and Mr. Hyler is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Hyler is currently awaiting extradition to Winnebago County.
