Grand Jury Indicts Hunt in Tierra Bryant Disappearance

7/5/2017

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced that Rashan Hunt has been indicted on six charges for the murder of 19-year-old Tierra Bryant.

Hunt, 36, has been charged with Voluntary Manslaughter, Felonious Assault, Tampering with Evidence, Gross Abuse of a Corpse, and two counts of Obstructing Official Business.

Bryant was last seen alive in Middleburg Heights in March of 2015. Although Hunt has admitted to killing Bryant, her remains have not been found.

The indictment is based on Hunt’s confession and evidence recovered throughout the investigation.

“Unfortunately, another teen in our community has lost their life,” said O’Malley. “My condolences go out to the family of Tierra Bryant. It is my hope that at some point in the near future her remains are recovered so that she may receive a proper burial and to assist this family in the healing process.”

Hunt’s arraignment date is July 19.
