Responding Officers found Isaiah Renouf on the floor of the residence with a large wound to his chest. Lifesaving measures were attempted at the scene; Mr. Renouf was then transported to Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus, where he succumbed to his injuries. A post-mortem examination by the Ocean County Medical Examiner determined the cause of Mr. Renouf’s death to be a stab wound to the chest, and the manner of death to be a homicide. A subsequent investigation by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Unit, Jackson Township Police Department and Ocean County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit revealed that Mr. Renouf and Jshawn Cutler had an altercation at the Connor Boulevard residence, where Cutler stabbed Mr. Renouf – causing his death. Cutler was later apprehended during a motor vehicle stop by the Lakewood Township Police Department. He is currently lodged in the Ocean County Jail pending a detention hearing.
Prosecutor Billhimer and Chief Kunz would like to acknowledge the cooperative assistance of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Unit, Jackson Township Police Department, Lakewood Township Police Department, Pemberton Township Police Department, and Ocean County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit, for their collaborative efforts in connection with this very thorough investigation. “Outstanding teamwork was exhibited today by all the law enforcement officers and agencies involved in this investigation,” Prosecutor Billhimer stated. “This horrendous crime was solved so swiftly thanks to the hard work and determination of these fine men and women in blue. Through their efforts, a very dangerous person has been removed from the streets of Ocean County. Now, our focus is to ensure that justice is done for Mr. Renouf,” Prosecutor Billhimer concluded.
