Teacher suspended over 'relationship' with boy, 17, is shot dead in driveway

Teacher suspended over 'relationship' with boy, 17, is shot dead in driveway

A suspended Pennsylvania school teacher was gunned down while standing on her mother's driveway on Mother's Day, police said. She died at the scene.

School officials and members of the media received an anonymous email in October 2017, containing the 2016 Aliquippa police incident report which implied she inappropriately met with a 17-year-old boy, Times Online reported.

A teacher has been shot dead on Sunday a matter of months after she was suspended from her post for allegedly being caught by the police in a compromising position in a vehicle with a 17-year-old boy.

The report, which was reportedly written by an Aliquippa officer, and later confirmed to The Beaver Countian by law enforcement officials as being authentic, described DelTondo as being in a parked vehicle with steamed windows alongside a 17-year-old student of hers. "I really don't... attractive lady, friendly, knew everybody, talked to everybody".

The report said DelTondo "didn't want her fiance to know" she was with the boy, claiming he was a friend. She had told police the boy had called her because "he was upset and needed someone to take to".

No charges were ever filed over the relationship. Cops later found text messages and Snapchat messages which revealed the pair had a 'relationship'.

Reports say that the police report remained confidential until October, when the informant sent the email to DelTondo's school.

After receiving the email, her school announced that she was being suspended and "removed from the classroom pending an investigation". However, the school's CEO found that the teenager was never a registered student at the school.

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.

The police have launched a full homicide investigation.

Though DelTondo was never charged in the incident, she was suspended in November 2017 after Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School Chief Executive Officer Brian Hayden contacted ChildLine, which "is part of a mandated statewide child protective services program created to accept child abuse referrals and general child well-being concerns, and transmit the information quickly to the appropriate investigating agency", according to the organization's website. We have no additional information beyond what is being reported by local media.

DelTondo's fiancé reportedly called off the wedding several months after the 2016 incident. We express our sympathy to her family, friends, and coworkers. According to the report, her family wanted to go big when DelTondo got engaged.

"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".

Last year, DelTondo was featured on a Get Marty report in a dispute over her custom wedding dress. Their wedding was canceled a few months after she was found in the auto with the student, but before her name was made public.

When the designer did not appear in court, a judge ruled that he should pay the DelTondos over $4,600.
