Game Warden Jimmy Hutto succumbed to a gunshot wound received earlier in the month while assisting Fayette County deputies in serving a narcotics warrant at a home.

During the raid, Game Warden Hutto was shot in the lower abdomen by the subject.

Game Warden Hutto was admitted to a local hospital where he remained for two weeks. He was released from the hospital only three days before his death, but had to be re-admitted due to complications.

In December 2013 the man who murdered Game Warden Hutton plead guilty to murder, three counts of attempted murder, and the unlawful distribution of a controlled substance. He was subsequently sentenced to five life sentences.

Game Warden Hutto is survived by his daughter, parents, three brothers, and three sisters.

I met your dad Jimmy in Panama city , Florida back when my youngest son was 13 or 14 . We struck up a conversation together at the beach resort we were at and ended up hitting it off very well . We went to St. Andrews state park the next day and ended up doing some snorkeling together . All in all we had a great time and made a great friendship .Also we shared a lot about our lives . His with Enterprise and mine with the company I work for . He was super with our son Tyler and his buddy Kyle . He also said Hailey this , and Hailey that ! lol . In all seriousness , he was proud to be your dad . He also was the one who introduced me to beer can chicken and I use that recipe to this day ! We ended up seeing him and his girlfriend at the shoe superstore on 231 coming home . Talk about a small world . We exchanged numbers at the time and were going to meet up as we live outside Muscle Shoals but a time passed and I was telling some guys I worked with about Jimmy's recipe when one told me he had something to show me . It was an outdoors Alabama magazine and it told of Jimmy's passing in the line of duty . I would definitely have been there had I known of it at the time . I am truly sorry for your loss and I also lost a new but very dear friend . My wife cried when I told her of his passing . But believe me when I say it Hailey , Your dad loved you more than I can say. Tim Tomas
