King County Sheriff’s Deputy Martin “Marty” Duran – who worked out of the Burien precinct – passed away at Tacoma General Hospital late Wednesday evening (May 22) from injuries sustained from an off-duty motorcycle accident, according to Sgt. Cindi West.

Deputy Duran, 47, had a history of public service, working mostly in the White Center and Skyway areas out of the Burien office. He served in the Army and then went on to become a paramedic and fire fighter in New Mexico prior to becoming a member of the Valencia County Sheriff’s Office in New Mexico.

In 2004, Duran moved to King County and accepted a job with the King County Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Duran was a highly respected member of the Sheriff’s Office and most recently was a Master Police Officer assigned to the Southwest Precinct.

He is survived by his wife, daughter and adult son.

“Deputy Duran will be greatly missed,” West said.

Services for Deputy Duran will be held in New Mexico.
