MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Michigan State Police are investigating the death of 26-year-old Jake Rameau last week. Family members say he died trying to catch the man who stole his brother's car.
The accused car thief is 25-year-old Dashawn Boylan. He's now charged with vehicle theft.
Rameau crashed his motorcycle in the chase and had been shot, too.
The Muskegon County prosecutor says at this point he's not aware of murder charges against Boylan.
Rameau's funeral was held Wednesday. His mother says he was a rock star who loved attention but would also do anything for his family. She says last week he proved that, and it cost him his life.
Rameau balanced being the lead singer of a local band and a loving father to his 4-year-old daughter, Ella.
His girlfriend, Kristen Wells, said he loved music and family.
