A Pennsylvania teacher was gunned down on Mother's Day just months after being suspended from her job following a leaked police report stating that officers had found her in a steamed-up parked auto with a 17-year-old boy, reports the Daily Mail. Once a victim of a confidential information leak, reports suggest that the state police investigation that followed may have possibly led to her death.
"Ms DelTondo was employed by PA Cyber but on a paid suspension".
Eventually, they took the salon to court and got a local investigative reporter involved to pressure the wedding dress maker into doing the right thing.
Griffin contacted the designer, who cited family emergencies as the reason behind the delay, and the DelTondo family received their money.
DelTondo died of multiple gunshot wounds to the back.
Rachael DelTondo, 32, was shot dead standing on her mother's driveway on Sunday. Other neighbors said they heard as many as 12 gunshots. At this time, there is no information about a possible suspect or motive. 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". Her mom, Lisa DelTondo, bought her a $10,000 wedding dress from Anne Gregory Bridal in Dormont.
DelTondo was suspended from her school in November after allegations of the relationship with a student were made public. According to the report, DelTondo and the 17-year-old were found in a parked vehicle near the Aliquippa hospital around 2 a.m. Police officers were patrolling the area at the time when they found them.
The report said no charges were filed in the incident.
"Attached you will find a police report outlining a incident where a currrent [sic] PA Cyber school teacher was caught with a former student in a vehicle", read part of the email sent to The Beaver Countian, which they said included records from "county, state, and federal law databases". She added that her fiancé did not know where she was, and would only be "mad" if he found out.
She defended herself at the time by saying that the pair were just talking and that the teen was no longer a student.
Brian Hayden, CEO of Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, said that because he is a mandatory reporter, he had to notify Pennsylvania Childline when he received the email, even though it was about an incident that had happened almost two years earlier.
According to Times Online, towards the end of previous year, DelTondo was suspended with pay from her teaching job at Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School after a police report alleging there had been an incident involving her and a former student came to light.
