Teacher 'Suspended For Relationship With Teen' Shot Dead Outside Mum's House

Teacher 'Suspended For Relationship With Teen' Shot Dead Outside Mum's House

A Pennsylvania schoolteacher who was reported to have had a teenage boy in her vehicle and who was later suspended was shot to death in her mother's driveway on Mother's Day.

Her neighbours paid tribute to her and spoke of their shock at the violent episode in the aftermath of DelTondo's death. At this time, it is believed that she died at the scene.

"I counted six shots that I heard", DelTondo's neighbor, Fred Poore, told CBS Pittsburgh.

The death has stunned neighbors in the quiet neighborhood and police are hunting for clues to the identity of the killer.

DelTondo, who was previously engaged, was a teacher at the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School until last fall, when she was suspended after confidential information was allegedly leaked from the Aliquippa Police Department regarding her alleged relationship with a student.

According to reports, an anonymous October email tipped off school officials to the 2016 incident.

Authorities in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, said officers on patrol at around 1.50am on February 6, 2016 saw a vehicle parked up outside the old Aliquippa Hospital.

The report said no charges were filed in the incident.

Inside was DelTondo and the teen.


Authorities said that it is unclear whether the incident with the teenager had anything to do with her murder. The teen was not a student at the school. Investigations uncovered a relationship between the two over Snapchat and via text messages. When qeustioned by the officer, Deltondo claimed that she was just friends with the student and that they were only talking; police added that she claimed she was only talking with the teen because "he was upset and needed someone to talk to". "Nobody, including Ms. Deltondo, the Aliquippa Police Department, the juvenile male or his family, or any other person or agency had informed PA Cyber of this or any other incident", Hayden told Times Online.

No charges were brought, but DelTondo was still suspended by the school.

The report said that at roughly 1:50am on 6 February, 2016, they investigated a auto parked near an old hospital in the town of Aliquippa.

Brian Hayden, the CEO of Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, released a statement about DelTondo's death. We express our sympathy to her family, friends, and co-workers.

Though known in local media outlets for her dispute with her wedding dress designer, Rachael DelTondo was once a teacher.

The teacher was allegedly found in a auto with a former student, 17, with steamed-up windows.

But the wedding was called off unexpectedly - a few months after DelTondo was caught with the teen, but before the report was made public.

Officials say it will take some time for investigators to collect the forensic evidence from the phones that were taken to Harrisburg. By early 2017, they finally received a check in the mail. "I really don't... attractive lady, friendly, knew everybody, talked to everybody". I really don't, ' said Dan Casper, a neighbor, who described the 32-year-old as a 'beautiful lady, friendly, knew everybody, talked to everybody'.
