Hunter Alexander Frank pleads guilty to manslaughter in death of Tia Blood

Family members of Tia Blood were in Lethbridge Court on Tuesday reading victim impact statements regarding the devastating loss of their family member.

Tia Blood was found dead in October of last year just outside of Lethbridge. Hunter Alexander Frank plead guilty to one count of manslaughter on Tuesday. He will serve four years.

Cara Blood, the sister of Tia Blood, says it’s been extremely difficult having to deal with the loss of their loved one. She also talked about what kind of person Tia was.

“Our family has been sifting through messages from her community that she created. And the common message is that she was a person of safety. She had a way of telling you what you needed to hear, but in the most gentle of ways. She had this way of connecting with anybody. And she went above and beyond for her peers. I’ve received countless messages of saying she had taken my kids to the clinic, she has helped me buy groceries, she has brought my kids this place, wherever they needed to go.”
