Reward increases for information on murder of Fort Myers coach


FORT MYERS, Fla. — The reward for information about the murder of Fort Myers coach Craig Dujuan Truttling has been increased to $17,500, Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers announced Thursday.

“I need people to know this is an honorable, working 33 year old man,” Kimberly Truttling Green says, “law-abiding citizen.”

His sister Kimberly tells NBC2 Craig was a football coach for the Fort Myers Firecats and family man poised to lead his family’s construction business.

Nearly two weeks ago, on July 29, Truttling was shot to death inside a black pickup truck near Highland Avenue and Canal Street.

“We just never thought we’d have to bury Craig being that he’s the baby,” Green says. “We would’ve thought that it would’ve been the other way around.”

Family and church friends of Truttling are now adding to the reward fund, offering an additional $12,000 for anonymous tips that lead to an arrest. These funds are in addition to the $3,000 being offered by Crime Stoppers and the $2,500 being offered by the City of Fort Myers. 


Green says finding his killer would be worth every penny.

“With or without help we will catch them. But to gain closure,” she says, “we want them caught now.”

Anyone with information on his murder is asked to call SWFL Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
