 UNDATED, MI (WKZO) - Eric Lee Ramsey is dead, ending his young life with an unimaginably cruel crime spree that included raping a college student, setting a house full of children on fire and staging a one man demolition derby with police.

State Police say Ramsey abducted his victim from the CMU Campus Wednesday night, bound her, raped her at a home and then put her back in the car telling her he planned to kill her.  She bailed out of the moving vehicle, breaking her arm and running to a home where 3 children were home alone.  They let her in and locked him out calling 911 and their dad. He set the place on fire and ran before police came. Their dad came home and put out the fire.

Police say Ramsey then drove to Isabella County where he was spotted, yesterday morning. He rammed one police car, stole a sanitation truck, and rammed two more police cruisers,  before a Crawford County Deputy shot him to death.  

Just  before that he had commented on his facebook, “Well folks I’m about to get shot, Peace”.



It was designed to be a drunk driving crackdown during the holidays but when you cast a big enough net, you catch a lot of other things too./
