A 34-year-old Gowen man was murdered early Monday morning in Spencer Township.

The Kent County Sheriff Department said that the victim, Brent Luttrell, 34 years old, was sleeping at his home at 12849 Pinewood N.E., when three armed masked males entered the residence about 1 a.m. Luttrell immediately ran outside and was confronted by at least one of the suspects. He was then forced into a red passenger vehicle with a loud muffler (driven by a fourth person) and transported to the area of Lincoln Lake and Pinewood, where he was later found in the roadway with multiple wounds. Luttrell was transported to Spectrum Health Butterworth, where he died as a result of his injuries.

An autopsy was conducted and it was determined Luttrell died from multiple gunshot and stab wounds.

Police reported there were three other adults in the residence (one male and two females) and a juvenile male. The adult male, reported to be a cousin of Luttrell, received facial injuries and was treated and released from the hospital.

Luttrell was paroled from prison in April, after serving a year (on a plea deal) on one count of delivery and manufacturing of marijuana, and one count of conspiracy to manufacture and deliver marijuana. Prior to that he served 14 years in prison, from 1998-2012 for multiple charges, including kidnapping, escape, safe breaking, home invasion 2nd degree, and weapons-larceny. Police have not commented on whether they think this crime is related to his criminal past.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kent County Sheriff Department at 616-336-3113 or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345. Silent Observer will pay a reward of up to $2,000 if your tip information leads to the arrest of those responsible for Luttrell’s death.
