No new information has surfaced, yet, about the dead man found at 3523 Queen Ave. N. under bizarre and mysterious circumstances. (Click here and also here for previous blog articles)
However, in the meantime I have dug up the extensive criminal record of Tyrone Hutchins, the owner of the property where the dead dude turned up...
I'm just going to lay out the whole mess and describe the resolution of each charge. I would like to say, however, I've never seen "failure to confine a dangerous dog" listed as a charge. It may appear that, at long last, we have an answer to the pressing question of WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

Wait a minute. Wasn't that the same set of charges as the 2007 incident? Yes, and it was resolved much the same way. Though it's true this guy never learns his lesson, it appears the courts are rather slow to learn sometimes, too.

This one is the most interesting and creates even more mystery. Hutchins was convicted on the domestic assault charge back in 2012, and the "disorderly" was dismissed. He was credited for a bit of time served and now has probation until 2014 and a sentence hanging over his head.
HOWEVER, there as some action in this case as recently as June 4. (Keep in mind it was only June 3 when I was writing about the body found at the house!) Hutchins was hauled into court again on this old charge and told to "stay away from the victim's residence" and was required to post bond.
RIGHT AFTER A BODY TURNS UP AT HIS HOUSE?
What the heck?
