Saint Jo police investigating woman’s death

A 50-year-old Saint Jo woman has died from injuries she received from an alleged beating at her home on Aug. 5.
Saint Jo Police Chief Mark Robertson said the case began as an aggravated assault, but has now turned to murder after her death on Aug. 11.
He explained a neighbor discovered Tia Hutson seriously injured at her home in Saint Jo and called 911 for an ambulance. Hutson was transported to Nocona General Hospital and then airlifted to John Peter Smith Hospital with serious facial and head injuries.
The death has shaken this small community where Robertson said the last murder happened in 1986. The chief contacted the Texas Rangers for assistance.
“We have three in the department including myself. Ranger Josh Engleman responded and is on the investigation, which opens us up to more resources for criminal investigation,” explained the chief.
The investigation is still in the early stages as it transitions from aggravated assault to murder. Robertson said an autopsy will be performed. The chief added from what he understands Hutson was not married and did yard maintenance around Saint Jo.
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Saint Jo Police at 940-995-2337 or to the county Crimestoppers at (866) 499-8477.

  1. I pray this woman’s killer is brought to justice but the statement about the last murder being in 1986 is FALSE. My father Tommy Holland was murdered in 1999 and the people involved all got away with it except one person. Had the state and county done a better job investigating they would have arrested more than one person, all they want is an open and shut case when it comes to these so I pray they actually take time with this and everyone involved is brought to justice.

    • That was the information provided by the police chief, you might pass that along to him.

  2. I pray you catch the monster who savagely took my sweet, beautiful friends life . This is such a horrific thing that has happened! Tia was a ray of sunshine. I’m going to miss her so much and her laughter. Rest In Peace and hurt no more sweet Angel😇❤️♥️💜💚💗Love always ,your friend ✝️
