Unfortunately, Stewart County Sheriff Frankie Gray said the body of Matt Hutchins was found in a wooded area adjacent to his property in Big Rock at approximately 11:30 am, Thursday, February 14. Hutchins was reported missing from Walker Ridge Rd. in Big Rock, Friday, Feb. 1, by his companion of 19 years, Shelly Mills. We ran a story of him missing in the Tuesday, February 12 Standard after Mills called the office last week and sounded extremely worried. She said, "I've been with him for 19 years and he's never done anything like this. I talked to him at 3:24 pm, Thursday, Jan. 31, and told him I would be home in a couple of hours." According to Mills, he had just spent $321 on materials to enclose the pump house at their home. Mills added, "When I got home about 6 pm, I expected him to be there but there were no lights on in the cabin and he wasn't there. Mills said both of Hutchins' vehicles were still at the cabin as well as a 4-wheeler. "Matt, his keys, wallet, and a handgun he carried were all that was missing. Gray said the Sheriff's office had checked his phone records and bank account and talked to employees he worked with and anyone who would have had contact with him. Gray said the Sheriff's office wanted to do a more detailed search of the area friends and family had searched already. Gray said, "The TBI and the Sheriff's office will continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death, "but there doesn't appear to be any signs of foul play."
