Killing of suspended teacher was a 'crime of passion,' investigators say

Killing of suspended teacher was a 'crime of passion,' investigators say

Rachael DelTondo, 33, was shot and killed in the driveway of her mother's Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, home on May 13 after being dropped off by friends.

According to KDKA-TV, DelTondo died at the scene.

A neighbor said that he heard at least six shots fired.

It's a shock and a mystery to neighbors on the quiet street.

Rachael DelTondo, an Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, school teacher, had just returned to her mother's home Sunday night after getting ice cream. The incident allegedly occurred in February 2016, and DelTondo was found with the student in a parked auto at 2:00 a.m. near Aliquippa hospital.

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.

No charges were filed, but police noted in the report that "the windows were steamed over and the engine was not running".

Inside was DelTondo and the teen. Hayden said the student did not attend the online public school. Investigations uncovered a relationship between the two over Snapchat and via text messages.

She also said 'she didn't want her fiancé to know that she was here parked because he would get mad'.




The teenager was from a troubled home and was being helped by a number of police officers and DelTondo.

It is being speculated that something the student revealed to DelTonto may have led to her death.

According to District Attorney David Lozier, investigators are trying to collect information from a cell phone that might give information on the case, although the owner of the cell phone was not identified.

However, she was reportedly suspended last fall following allegations from a former Aliquippa High School student's mother.

"We were saddened to learn of the tragic death of Rachel DelTondo, apparently the result of a violent incident in the City of Aliquippa". However, the check never came in the mail, so the family reached out to their local KDKA-TV reporter, Marty Griffin's segment, "Get Marty". "We express our sympathy to her family and coworkers and will support them in any way possible in the weeks and months ahead as they mourn her passing".

The DelTondo family still paid for a custom-made wedding dress, but still had to take the New York-based designer to court after he did not send them the dress, and refused to refund them.

The teacher was planning a big, elaborate wedding with her Italian-American family, which included a $10,000, custom-made dress from a NY designer, CBS Local reported.

Rachael DelTondo was supposed to tie the knot in 2017, but only four months later, the wedding was called off. DelTondo told police that the teen was upset and they were friends who were just talking.
