Saint Jo police investigating woman’s death

Published

on

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.

First official day of fall arrives Saturday

Welcome fall! The official start of fall is Sept. 23 with the autumnal equinox. Not only do temperatures drop, but plant life slows down and so do we.
During an equinox, the Sun crosses the “celestial equator”—an imaginary extension of Earth’s equator line into space. The equinox occurs precisely when the Sun’s center passes through this line.
After the autumnal equinox, days become shorter than nights as the Sun continues to rise later and nightfall arrives earlier. This ends with the winter solstice, after which days start to grow longer once again.

Bowie Independent School District Trustees got their first look at the bond proposal page on the district website and handled a brief agenda of business.
The board went into an executive session to discuss a salary addendum for Superintendent Blake Enlow. Earlier this summer trustees conducted the superintendent’s evaluation, but any salary changes usually come after the salary schedule is finalized. Any change to his contract also has to be done as an addendum.
After a 10-minute discussion in closed session the board voted back in open session to give the superintendent the same 2% raise as the rest of the non-step employees.
In his report, Enlow directed the board to the district webpage at bowieisd.net, where citizens can click the bond tab at the top of the page to access detailed information on the $65.8 million bond proposal.
