Family Mourns Entrepreneur Apparently Killed by Friend : Shooting: Tyler K.
Hutchinson’s body was stored for two days in a sleeping bag before authorities were notified. A memorial service is planned for today.
A memorial will be held today for a local entrepreneur apparently killed by a friend who told police the shock of the accidental shooting prompted him to store the body in a sleeping bag for two days, authorities and family members said.
Tyler K. Hutchinson, 25, a San Clemente native, will be mourned by family and friends at a seaside park in Santa Barbara. The co-founder of Boulderblades Inc., a Newport Beach in-line skating goods company, died Sunday from a gunshot wound to the head, according to a coroner’s report.
The grief of Hutchinson’s loved ones has been deepened by the bizarre circumstances surrounding the death of the successful young businessman and avid athlete. No arrests have been made, but San Luis Obispo County sheriff’s detectives are investigating the accounts given by Mark Westwick, 23, of Avila Beach, a former co-worker of Hutchinson who asserts the shooting was accidental.
“Police are investigating some inconsistencies that they have asked we not discuss,” said David Wilk, Hutchinson’s stepfather. “They’re reluctant to give us many details on all the angles they are investigating. At this point, there is no reason to think this is more than a horrible accident. But there are those strange aspects.”
On a business trip, Hutchinson was visiting Westwick’s Avila Beach home Saturday night for an evening of baseball viewing and beer drinking, Westwick told sheriff’s detectives. Hutchinson was reportedly playing with his friend’s new semi-automatic pistol shortly after midnight Sunday when Westwick grabbed for the weapon, Westwick told investigators. The gun went off, killing Hutchinson, he said.
Gripped by shock, Westwick sat next to the body all night and then bundled it up in a sleeping bag he secreted in his garage, according to an account Westwick issued via his attorney, Melvin de la Motte of San Luis Obispo. Upset and confused, Westwick then took Hutchinson’s Toyota truck and headed to San Clemente to inform his friend’s grandparents, De la Motte said.
But Westwick made it only as far as a hotel near Los Angeles International Airport, De la Motte said. Monday morning, he called his mother and arranged to meet her and De la Motte in Oxnard.
Westwick’s actions have been hard for Hutchinson’s family members to understand. Westwick and Hutchinson met when they both worked for Wilk at his novelty company, Pacific Milk Caps, a maker of POGs.
“Mark was a dear friend of Tyler’s,” Wilk said, as he and other family members gathered in Santa Barbara for today’s memorial. “I would like to think it was all indeed an accident. I just don’t understand why he didn’t call police. It is very bothersome. It makes everything even worse. The thought that his body was just lying there. No one called 911. . . . What if they could have helped?”
Hutchinson was described by friends as a handsome, ambitious, hard-working businessman who had already begun to make his mark at a relatively young age. Logan Gulla, the co-founder of Boulderblades, said their in-line skating goods enterprise is on track to complete $15 million in sales in this its inaugural year. Twice the young company or its products have been featured on national television news shows.
“He had entrepreneurship in his genes,” Gulla said. “The personal loss here is tremendous. The corporate loss is tremendous.”
Hutchinson was in Avila Beach for the weekend to have West-wick introduce him to a local inventor with a product proposal, Gulla said. Shortly before his death, Hutchinson called Gulla to update him on the project, and he sounded “extremely coherent,” Gulla said, adding that he was stunned by descriptions of Hutchinson playing with a pistol.
“That is extremely out of character, he’s just not that stupid,” Gulla said. “Only two people know what happened, unfortunately, and one of them is dead. The whole thing is just extremely strange.”
Wilk said he hoped a lesson could be learned from his stepson’s death.
“There’s a gun and the gun goes off,” he said. “If there is no gun, this doesn’t happen.”
Hutchinson enjoyed golfing, skiing and volleyball, the latter a sport he fell in love with as a youngster watching matches with his stepfather, the founder in the 1970s of the Professional Beach Volleyball Tour.
The Cal State Long Beach business graduate also attended Arizona and Arizona State universities and dabbled for a time with a modeling career in Los Angeles. He graduated from San Clemente High School in 1989.
The memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. today on the grassy expanse of Shoreline Park along the coastline of Santa Barbara. The park is off the Cabrillo Boulevard exit of Highway 101, about a mile northwest of the city’s pier.
Hutchinson is survived by his parents, Terryle Wilk of Santa Barbara and Bill Hutchinson of Bullhead City, Ariz.; his stepfather, David Wilk of Santa Barbara; and his older brother, Travis Hutchinson of New York.

Update: ‘I Know That Child is Not Normal’
(Editor’s Note: This is the continuation of Wednesday’s hearing in the case of People vs. Tyler James Hutchinson. We reported earlier that the hearing was delayed due to an injury sustained by one of the defense witnesses on her way into court. The witness was treated and released and returned to court Wednesday afternoon. The hearing resumed at 3:00 p.m.)
Three family members of testified in San Mateo County Superior Court on Wednesday that Hutchinson, the man accused in the murder of 88-year-old Belmont resident Albert Korn, had a troubled youth and possible mental illness.
The purpose of Wednesday’s hearing was for conditional examination of several of the defendant’s family members and to set jury trial and pretrial conference dates.
Following several delays throughout the day, the conditional examination wrapped up at 3:00 p. m. and the defense and prosecution will now meet in early May to determine whether or not this will become a death penalty case.
Two of the defendant’s family members were flown in to testify, and one, an cousin in Texas gave her testimony via video conference because she was unable to travel due to health issues.
Hutchinson is accused of robbing, burglarizing and beating 88-year-old after breaking into his home on Hallmark Drive on June 2, 2009. Korn died of his injuries on June 17, 2009.
All three–an uncle, an aunt and cousin–testified that Hutchinson was shuffled around to different relatives’ homes by his parents during his childhood and teenage years, sometimes being left at the home of an aunt or uncle for a period of time.
Uncle remembers the early days
The defendant’s uncle, Herbert Burley of Colorado Springs, Colorado, said that as a child, Hutchinson was a happy, normal kid during the summer they spent together at Burley’s Colorado home.
“He had a skateboard–loved that skateboard, and he built a rail for it and I watched him everyday,” said Burley.
He added, “I gave him some rules, like a curfew, and he never broke it.”
Burley said that Hutchinson’s father expressed concern as the boy got older that he was hanging out with older children. “And his father didn’t like it.”
When asked by defense attorney Richard Keyes how he would feel if Hutchinson received the death penalty, Burley said, ‘It would hurt. You never get over that. My son was shot in the face and killed and my father was murdered also. I know the pain.”
“I care child”
Dencei Mason, Hutchinson’s first cousin testified via video conference from Texas. She said that Hutchinson showed up at her home in Marshall, Texas one day when he was a teenager.
“I looked out my back door and he was just sitting there on his luggage so I invited him in and he stayed a while. He said his daddy (JC Hutchinson) left him there. “
Mason said that Hutchinson’s father told her he couldn’t help his son any longer. She noticed Hutchinson’s feet were swollen and red and from gout. She went on to talk about odd and aggressive behaviors he exhibited while living with her.
“He was fidgety and jumpy and would talk to himself all the time and his mom would call he’d say ugly things. He would stay up all night and throw mattresses and furniture around. He never slept in the room I gave him.”
“He was a normal kid when he was 5 or 6, but then he changed,” added Mason.
“It’s sad to say, but I just couldn’t help him anymore. I’ve taken in lots of kids, but he was the toughest.”
Mason also said Hutchinson would use marijuana and alcohol while living with her, and his bad behaviors escalated when he was under the influence.
When assistant district attorney asked her on cross examination if she knew if Hutchinson had been in a gang, she said his mother said he was.
She finally asked him to leave and had her son and nephew take him to the bus station, but admitted she felt sorry for him.
“Other kids picked on Tyler–it’s natural that he would act out,” Mason said.
When asked how she would feel if Hutchinson was executed, Mason became emotional and said, “He’s not Tyler. God forgive me, it would hurt because he is my blood.”
“Not accepted by his white grandparents”
The day’s final witness was Paula Crockett, who testified after being treated at Sequoia Hospital for a knee injury she sustained on the escalator in the courthouse earlier in the day. Crockett was wheeled into the courtroom by a bailiff.
Crockett, 70, is Hutchinson’s aunt. She said she didn’t hear much about him while he was a small child, but when they were together at her home in Marshall, Texas on Christmas, she said, “He wasn’t like all of the other nephews and nieces I have. I had some concern about him from our first meeting.”
“I know that child is not normal. He wasn’t the same person when he grew up, and that hurt me.” She added that Hutchinson’s father, JC Hutchinson, would correct his son for being disrespectful to his aunt.
When asked by Giannini if she had ever met the younger Hutchinson’s grandparents on his mother’s side, she answered, “No I never did. He was not accepted by his white mother’s parents,” she said.
Crockett became emotional when asked how she would be affected if Hutchinson was executed. “It would affect me real bad. I pray for him.”
While being wheeled out of the courtroom she gave Hutchinson’s attorney a program from JC Hutchinson’s funeral.
“I want Tyler to have this,” she said, and asked if she could give Hutchinson a hug and Judge Mark Forcum said he didn’t think it would be a good idea.
“I love you baby,” she said to Hutchinson as she was wheeled out of the courtroom.
The defense and the prosecution will meet on May 2 to discuss whether or not the death penalty will be pursued in this case.
A pre-trial conference is scheduled for May 11 at 10:30 a.m.
(Editor’s note: the following is the earlier story that was reported on Wednesday morning):
A woman who was to serve as a possible defense witness for Tyler Hutchinson, the man accused in the of Belmont resident Albert Korn, suffered an injury on the escalator at San Mateo County Courthouse Wednesday morning and was taken to Sequoia Hospital.
Defense attorney Richard Keyes says the woman, Paula Crockett, who traveled from Texas to for the proceeding, may return to the courthouse Wednesday afternoon pending results of an x-ray. An investigator for the defense team was at the hospital awaiting word on the results.
San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Mark Forcum agreed to continue the proceedings at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday pending the outcome of Crockett’s condition.
The injury caused a commotion in the busy lobby of the courthouse, and because it occurred on the escalator, firefighters and paramedics had to treat the woman on the steps of the halted escalator and move her on to a stretcher.
As paramedics began sliding the woman on the stretcher down the escalator, the escalator somehow began moving prompting the paramedics to shout for it to be shut off and stabilize the stretcher as it moved.
Crockett’s testimony was to be part of a conditional examination proceeding, during which witnesses for the defense answer questions from the defense and are subject to cross examination by the San Mateo County assistant district attorney, Al Giannini.
Giannini explained that the purpose of the conditional hearing in a potential capital punishment case is to preserve the testimony of witnesses who are either infirmed or elderly and may not be able to participate in a jury trial, should one occur.
Several defense witnesses from Texas were unable to come to California, so arrangements are made for video conferencing their testimony into the courtroom.
“If and when this becomes a death penalty case, we would have that testimony available by video recording,” said Giannini.
The defendant is currently being held at the San Mateo County Jail. He is accused of robbing, burglarizing and beating 88-year-old Albert Korn after breaking into his home on Hallmark Drive on June 2, 2009.

Meet Tyler Hutchinson of elite39 in Brookline Village – Boston Voyager Magazine
Today we’d like to introduce you to Tyler Hutchinson.
Tyler, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Opening a fitness studio had been in the back of our heads for a long time. We had a lot of ideas of what we wanted it to be we just had not committed to it. Then the right moment happened this past fall the opportunity presented itself. We took advantage of it! We had a vision but we knew we had to be smart in our approach. Brookline itself has a large variety of different style of box gyms, to small studios, power lifting centers, as well as CrossFit what we wanted was to be different and have our own unique personality to separate ourselves from other gyms. We chose to create a unique private strength & conditioning studio. We decided to take the approach that athletes have. They are the ones who take the best care of their bodies and train in a smart methodical method that improves strength, helps keep body fat low, weight loss, mobility, and most importantly the nutrition. That shifted our focus to semi-private personal training (up to 4 people at one time) and team training (up to 10 people at one time). We also knew other gyms offer semi-private training but we wanted it to be about the customer. So, each person in our semi-private training gets an individual custom workout around their goal. Our team training options (8-10 people) are foundations, afterburn, industrial strength, boxing & conditioning, and elite boxing. By December 2016 the name elite39 came to life. We chose the number “39” because it represents purification from an undesirable state and the emergence of a new entity. Secondly, it is also our street address in Brookline Village. We opened our doors officially on January 30th, we have hit the ground running ever since!
Has it been a smooth road?
For the most part, it was a pretty smooth road, we had a few minor hiccups with the construction but nothing outrageous and nothing that set us back.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the elite39 story. Tell us more about the business.
We mainly focus in semi-private personal training and team training. Neither of which are your generic classes where you come in and everyone does the same thing. We felt that’s just not a way we can market ourselves and compete with big name gyms who run classes with upwards of 20-30 people as well as have tons of different options. We designed our trainings on both levels around your goals. Even in our team trainings we will recommend the team training options based around what that person’s goal is. They are more than welcome to try the other classes but we try to set you up around your goal. Foundation classes are a combination of strength and cardio where focus more than anything on proper movement patterns and introducing the customer to proper push, press or pull movements. The fan favorite is afterburn for fat burning and high-intensity interval training, industrial strength is for those who want explosive movements, or to have a day of lifting heavy and pushing their own possible boundaries, and our boxing conditioning groups and elite boxing. Our boxing classes are taught by former boxers themselves or MMA back round to give them a unique experience that will melt fat, build lean muscle, and get great cardio with endurance. It’s necessarily them just going and hitting a heavy bag for an hour. Our semi-private is catered completely around the individual and their goals. It doesn’t matter the level of fitness experience or if they have multiple people in the session. Your custom workout is based around you not around who else is in the group. We tailor programs for weight loss, muscle growth, explosive power, sports performance, injury prevention, and those who just want to be healthy. We can train people with all different goals. I think what makes us stand out & separates us is our unique boxing classes but also how we build relationships with our clients. Clients want to feel noticed and that were not here to collect a check or treat them as a number. They want to be noticed and feel and know their trainer is here to help them because they love what they do. I love getting to know my clients it helps us build a sense of community but also allows for us to be more precise with them because we know them well enough we can push them just the right way. Knowing your client is huge when it comes to keeping them motivated, accountable, and allows for us to be open and honest. As a company, I’d say we are most proud of our clients. Not to be cheesy but the reality is we are. We opened our doors running a 21 day shred program. We had clients who never met us only saw limited information and videos via social media and still purchased the shred program before our doors even opened. They then signed to membership. The minute they started at elite39 is the day we started our journey. So that’s why were so proud, strangers put trust in us before we even opened and continue to put that trust. We are proud of how hard they work each time they come into the studio even if they don’t want to be there. We love what we do and without clients, we would exist.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Absolutely I think the industry will shift. The fitness industry itself is always evolving, there always new fitness trends or new styles being developed to stay one step ahead. The beauty of gyms currently is the technology and science behind it. 20 or 30 years ago, neither really existed there wasn’t the ability to find backings and solidify methods like there are now. I think the trend continues to be that the big box gym won’t dominates the markets quite like it used to. It may sound good to pay a higher price to have access to the pool, sauna, weights, classes, or whatever else they may have. However, are you using all those amenities? Are all those great things getting you to your goal? Chances are probably not so why not pay for something that is going to get you long term success, help you reach your goals, and be a part of something then gets you where you want to be. A smaller setting that has a true focus and direction for clients and being about the client is what will thrive. That’s worth the money. Or you pay a cheap box gym and they only care about numbers. Let’s face it they are almost hoping you won’t workout often because if everyone did they don’t have enough space or equipment. They hope you won’t come in but also you won’t cancel because it’s so cheap and that you might go to the gym so you’ll hold onto the membership. Technology and new methods are always popping up, that’s why I still and will always consider myself a student. I need to be constantly learning because the industry evolves I need to be able to evolve and change things as well.

Q&A with CYT Indy’s Artistic Director Tyler Hutchinson – CYT TIMES
To know him is to love him. Tyler Hutchinson is the (new-ish) Artistic Director for CYT Indianapolis, and he recently sat down with me to talk about how he became a part of the CYT family, the scope of his job, and his big dreams (which are both centered around animals). Intrigued? Read on!
You’re the new Artistic Director for CYT Indy. How did that opportunity come about?
CYT Indy had an amazing Artistic Director before myself, Angela Manlove. She was amazing. However the Lord called her and her husband to Boston. Upon her departure, the position became available and gratefully the Board of Directors felt that I was the best fit for the job after reviewing my resume and my involvement with CYT students and families.
What did you do prior to coming on at CYT?
Locally, I was a director for high schools and other independent groups. I also worked for a company where I traveled the country auditioning and developing talented actors, models, singers, and dancers that have a desire to perform for God. It kept me pretty busy, and to be honest…I was on a plane every weekend going to a new city. I actually still do it every now and again, just not as much.

Do you have kids? If so, are they involved in CYT?
NO! Hahaha! No children. All my CYT babies are enough for me! However, I REALLY want a cocker spaniel. That’s like a kid….right?
What has been the most unexpected thing so far about your role?
You know, going into every job, I think we enter thinking, “How can I make things better?” or “How can we change and make things more efficient?” Those are good thoughts to have because we should have that mindset. However, I never expected CYT to change me so much! I’ve grown so much not only with business skills but also spiritually. The Bible says, “So as iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend” (Prov. 27:17). And CYT Indy has continued to sharpen me and make be better as a person, inside and out!

I’m assuming every day is different, but what does a typical day (or week) look like for you as the Artistic Director?
You are correct! Every single day is different. No day is like the other. I don’t know about other affiliates, but here in Indy, there is no such thing as typical! Some days are full of meetings and others are full of rehearsals and exciting classes. We like to keep everyday new and fresh!

What’s your favorite show?
By far…The Lion King! I absolutely LOVE the show. It’s also my dream to be in the show one day. I don’t really believe in setting extremely huge dreams, because I really do enjoy living and allowing God to direct me…however, THAT is a dream!
I really, really appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions! I officially confirm the rumors that you’re amazing.
Check out what CYT Indianapolis is up to and how you can get involved!

Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is a visual novel released on July 20, 2017 for Microsoft Windows and macOS and September 22, 2017 for Linux.The game was developed and published by Game Grumps and written by Vernon Shaw and Leighton Gray. An extended version of Dadrector’s Cut was released for the PlayStation 4 along with the PC update on October 30, 2018. It was released on Nintendo Switch on July 2, 2019.
Dream Daddy is an interactive visual novel in which the player can choose between seven different single fathers they can date.Includes mini-games to play, multiple endings, and voice acting for Game Grumps . The player can customize the appearance of his character.
The game follows a lonely single father who has just moved into a new home in Maple Bay with his daughter Amanda. At the impasse where he lives, most of the fathers are single, and the player has the opportunity to get to know them. Fathers available for romance: Matt Sella, Craig Kahn, Hugo Vega, Brian Harding, Damien Bloodmark, Robert Small, and Joseph Christiansen.
Vernon Shaw, co-author and co-author of Dream Daddy , met Game Grumps when he was a talent manager at Maker Studios. Maker Studios was a Game Grumps channel network from June 2013 to January 2016. The idea for the game came from a joke by Vernon and co-writer Layton Gray about dads visiting Disneyland, and the inspiration for the dad’s dating simulator came from Hatoful Boyfriend Pigeon Visual Novel .Development for Dream Daddy began after Shaw offered the game to Arin Hanson, which Hanson immediately approved. Tyler Hutchinson, the director, and Jory Griffis, the narrative designer, were hired in the fall of 2016. The original plan for the game was to complete development about 9 months before the 2017 Father’s Day release, but it turned out that it worked. be too complicated. Dream Daddy was announced on June 18, 2017 with a 45 second teaser trailer uploaded to Game Grumps’ alternate channel, GrumpOut.On July 14, 2017, it was announced that the game’s release would be delayed due to some last minute bugs and would miss the original July 13, 2017 release date. The new date was set for July 19th. 2017, only to be postponed again. Finally, it came out on July 20, 2017. A version of Dadrector’s Cut with additional side quests and minigames was released on PlayStation 4 and released as a free update to the PC version on October 30, 2018.
Initially, Hutchinson and Griffis thought the game was too linear and advised Vernon and Leighton to turn to 1994 Tokimeki Memorial for seeking inspiration for system dating simulators. After the systemic gameplay was established, the player did not just play for the dads ‘affection, but played to the point where they could be “tough” or “erudite” enough for the dads’ affection. As the story progressed, it became more character-driven and logical.When the words are finished, there will be about 133,000 words in the game.
The philosophy Vernon Shaw used when developing the game was “sincerity shrouded in cynicism,” which meant that the player would play the game because of the gay father intrigue, but walked away with life lessons about parenting and relationships. Griffis recalls that the transition from a game about dads having sex to a relationship happened towards the end of development, when the character arcs were fully formed.The lack of mention of characters’ sexual orientation comes from the fact that the developers believe that most of the media about queer people is about social issues, not the relationship itself. Instead, play tackles issues like social anxiety and toxic masculinity.
According to review aggregator Metacritic, the critical reaction to the game was “mixed or moderate.”The game’s writing has been highly acclaimed by publishers such as Wired UK and PC Gamer. Critics noted that the game handles the transition from comedy to serious segments well, with Polygon’s Simone de Rochefort said, “While it’s wonderful and perhaps surprising that Dream Daddy is adept at handling serious plots, especially if everything you’ve seen is the marketing of the game. “It shouldn’t shock anyone that it’s also damn funny.”
The representation of LGBT people in the game was generally well received.Matt Kamen of Wired UK praised that the game does not use gay stereotypes. Eliza Favis of Game Informer said the game does not refer to the personalities of the characters: “The characters you see never talk about sexual identities, which may seem odd at times, but that is also appropriate; because Dream Daddy is a fantasy, not a reflection of reality, I felt that this world is removed from these social problems. ” PC Gamer’s Hannah Dwan said the game should have included commentary on how difficult it is for queer people to find relationships in society.The system for determining the gender identity and sexual orientation of a character in the game was highly praised by Wired UK.
The game was nominated for Best Visual Novel in the PC Gamer ‘s Game of the Year Awards 2017 and for Best Adventure Game Best of 2017 by IGN. He came in second in Best New Character (Damien Bloodmark), Best Cast and Game of the Year in Giant Bomb’s 2017 Game of the Year competition.It won the Biggest Surprise award in the Game Informer Adventure Game of the Year 2017.
