Suicide by Foreclosure: Sgt. Craig Hutchinson’s Death Self Inflicted

Travis County sheriff Sgt. Craig Hutchinson’s death ruled a suicide

A justice of the peace determined Friday that Travis County sheriff’s Sgt. Craig Hutchinson committed suicide, shattering the presumption that the respected veteran of more than three decades had died while doing his job.

And while investigators turned up evidence that Hutchinson in recent years had been diagnosed with anxiety and depression and had showed signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, they also pored through thousands of pages of financial documents that showed he had money troubles that stretch back to 2011. Hutchinson had been prescribed anti-depression medication, but the medicine wasn’t in his bloodstream at the time of his death, detectives said.

Police emphasized that their investigation isn’t over. Hutchinson’s widow, Victoria McKinney-Hutchinson, disagreed with Justice of the Peace Bill Gravell’s ruling that it was a suicide.
