Kutt, 18, of Sellersville, had been sitting with his girlfriend at the edge of the lake, waiting for the sun to set, when he was shot once in the back of the head, around 5:15 p.m. He was pronounced dead early Monday, Oct. 26, 2020
The shooting happened near the Old Ridge Road access to the state park, across from the marina at Lake Nockamixon.
Kutt's girlfriend (name withheld due to minor status and privacy concerns) told authorities she saw a man in an orange vest, which she described as hunting clothing, standing behind a yellow gate at Old Ridge Road, looking in their direction. The investigation found that the distance from that gate to where Kutt and his girlfriend were sitting was 550 feet away.
Police from throughout Upper Bucks County, including a K9 and a State Police helicopter searched the area and did not locate any persons of interest.
At a news conference on Monday, District Attorney Matt Weintraub pleaded with the public to help track down the shooter and find out what happened at the state park.
“We need to understand how Jason Kutt died and we need your help to do that.”
