November 16, 2022 — Detroit area attorney Marco Bisbikis congregated with members of his hit team in the aftermath of Dan (Hutch the Jeweler) Hutchinson murder last summer and chastised them for not murdering Hutchinson’s wife, too, according to prosecutors in Oakland County, Michigan at a bond hearing for Bisbikis this week.
The 38-year old Bisbikis was denied a chance at bail Tuesday, as he faces first-degree homicide charges, alleged to be the mastermind of Hutchinson’s slaying in a bizarre and devious plan to steals millions from his estate — Bisbikis pleaded not guilty earlier this month. Three of his co-defendants, including the triggerman, also await trial from behind bars, having also pleaded not guilty, but denied their bond request.
Known as the “Jeweler to the Stars” in the Motor City, the wildly popular and deeply beloved “Hutch the Jeweler” was shot to death behind the wheel of his GMC Yukon Denali on the afternoon of June 3, 2022, outside the Pay Benny pawn shop he had recently purchased in Oak Park, Michigan. Hutchinson, 47, owned Hutch’s Jewelry in Oak Park, an urban-chic staple in the spending habits of Detroit’s high-end hip-hop, athlete and entertainer crowd.
Oak Park is a suburb directly north of Detroit’s city limits on the near westside. The Pay Benny pawn shop and Hutch’s Jewelry are less than a mile apart on Greenfield Road.
Hutchinson and Bisbikis were friends and socialized together, according to sources. In the months before Hutchinson was slain, Hutchinson and his wife had Bisbikis draft and help execute
Bisbikis allegedly offered the hit team $50,000 for the job, per police reports related to the case. He came to the crime scene the day of the murder to talk with police unsolicited according to law enforcement records. Once the deed was done, Bisbikis met with at least two of his co-defendants to discuss his dissatisfaction with how the hit was carried out and to order them to all cease communication going forward to avoid leaving an evidence trail of a conspiracy, per prosecutors.
Hutchinson and his wife Marissa attended a meeting with Bisbikis at his Southfield law office the morning of his slaying. They left the meeting around noon and headed to the then temporarily-closed Pay Benny pawn shop to pay a carpenter for work he was doing for them in a remodeling of the store. Departing the Pay Benny parking lot at approximately 12:35, Hutch the Jeweler died in a hail of bullets fired into his side window by a man on a motor scooter. Marissa Hutchinson was next to her husband at the time of the attack, but was unharmed.
Police arrested “Precious” Roy Larry near the scene of the shooting and prosecutors accuse him of being the shooter in the hit. His first cousin Darnell Larry, a convicted murderer, was indicted as a co-conspirator almost three months later in late August. Angelo Raptoplous was also arrested and charged in the case in late August, named as the alleged go-between for Bisbikis and the Larrys. Raptoplous and the Larrys all pleaded not guilty and await trial from behind bars. Raptoplous, 32, has no criminal record.
Precious Roy Larry, 45, did two years in state prison out of Ohio for drug trafficking in the 2000s. Both Larrys hail from Detroit’s Eastside. Darnell Larry spent 25 years in state prison for a homicide he committed in th
Over the past three decades, Hutch’s Jewelry Store, has become known for outfitting Detroit’s rich and famous — most prominently, the area’s rapper, actor and athlete crowd — in customed-made diamond-studded chains, Cartier eyeglasses, rings, bracelets and Olde English D pendants. The business was started by Hutchinson’s parents at the now-shuttered Northland Mall in 1990.
A number of out-of-state celebrities became dedicated customers of Hutch the Jeweler’s and often showed off his custom-made pieces on their social media accounts. Best-selling Miami rapper Rick Ross is one of the jewelry store’s most loyal patrons.
