June 5, 2022 — Oak Park Police have arrested Roy Larry for last week’s brazen slaying of Dan (Hutch the Jeweller) Hutchinson, Detroit’s jeweller to the stars. Hutchinson was killed last Wednesday in a shooting outside a business on Greenfield Road, down the street from his Hutch’s Jewellers flagship store. Oak Park is the first suburb you hit once you leave Northwest Detroit’s city limits.
Sources tell Gangster Report, the murder of Hutch the Jeweller was a contract hit. Multiple sources claim rumours were floating around on the streets of Detroit during the winter that DEA and IRS agents were pushing Hutch to give information on narcotics traffickers laundering their money through jewellery stores around the area.
Hutchinson’s family started the chain in the 1990s out of the now-shuttered Northland Mall. The 47-year old was slain behind the wheel of his new-model blue GMC Denali in the parking lot of a pawn shop he owned at the corner of Greenfield and Miller. His wife was in the car at the time of the shooting, but was unscathed.
Roy Larry, 44, was apprehended shortly after Hutch was pronounced dead at the hospital. He was arraigned and pleaded not guilty back on Friday. According to police reports, Larry unloaded more than a dozen shots into Hutch’s driver’s side window.
Superstar rappers Rick Ross, Big Sean, Tea Grizzley, Sada Baby, 42 Dugg, Lil’ Baby, Young Thug and Young Jeezy have all purchased custom-made pieces of bling from Hutch in recent years. Ross showed off his Hutch-official merchandise on his social media streams in 2019.
Big-time drug kingpins and dope boys from the area have also made stops at Hutch’s stores and purchases of his jewellery staples in their schedules and wardrobes. One of Hutch’s specialties was diamond-encrusted “Olde English D” Detroit symbols, popular amongst street figures, pro-athlete and hip-hop elites alike repping the Motor City as their home.
