Garry Artman, convicted murderer, reveals additional crimes on deathbed

In a chilling turn of events, convicted murderer Garry Artman confessed to committing 11 additional unsolved murders moments before succumbing to lung cancer on December 28, 2023. Artman had been serving a life sentence for the 1996 murder and rape of 29-year-old Sharon Hammack.

The 66-year-old, who had fallen into a coma, emerged briefly before his demise, disclosing information about the unsolved cases. According to reports, Artman admitted to 10 out of the 11 killings occurring in Grand Rapids, Michigan, shedding light on a series of mysterious homicides.

One of the victims Artman confessed to murdering was 24-year-old Dusty Shuck, whose life was tragically cut short in 2006 near a truck stop, a crime previously linked to Artman through DNA evidence. The revelation offered some closure to Dusty’s mother, Lori Kreutzer, who described her daughter as an “amazing soul.”

Kent County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Eric Brunner explained that Artman’s disclosures during the three meetings with investigators were fruitful to an extent, acknowledging the burden investigators feel when seeking answers for families of the victims.

While Artman was convicted for Sharon Hammack’s murder, he was also linked to the disappearance of Cathleen Dennis in 1995. Despite Artman’s admission, authorities deem it unlikely Dennis’s body will ever be found.

Investigators are now delving into the details provided by Artman, aiming to bring closure to the families affected by the heinous crimes. The convicted killer’s death leaves lingering emotions among those seeking justice, emphasizing the challenges investigators face in solving cold cases even beyond the perpetrator’s demise.
