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

Authorities Rachael Del Tondo had gone to an ice cream shop on Sunday night and had just returned to the home

When she returned to her parents' home, she walked up the driveway, where her killer unleashed a withering barrage of gunfire at close range. She died at the scene.

'I counted six shots that I heard, ' a neighbor, Fred Poore, told CBS News.

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

Rachael Deltondo, 35, was suspended last November from the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School over the alleged affair with a 17-year-old.

In the police report filed in February 2016, officers said they found DelTondo and the teenage boy in a steamed-up parked auto around 2 a.m., the Pittsburgh Gazette reported.

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.

Inside was DelTondo and the teen.

Rachael DelTondo, 32, was reportedly gunned down outside her mother's house in Aliquippa, Beaver County, Pennsylvania in a hail of bullets.

It is speculated that DelTondo knew her assailant, but neither the district attorney nor local police are commenting on the investigation. DelTondo said she was talking to a former student who was upset, but the teen had never been registered at PA Cyber, where she worked.

The teenager was from a troubled home and was being helped by a number of police officers and DelTondo. The report was not public knowledge until the anonymous email was sent in October previous year.

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

But sources say it also prompted a state police investigation of the Aliquippa Police, and that DelTondo cooperated.

The school suspended DelTondo a month after receiving the tip.

Former boss Hayden said in a statement: "We were saddened this morning to learn of the tragic death of Rachael DelTondo, apparently the result of a violent incident in the city of Aliquippa". "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". "Ms. DelTondo was employed by PA Cyber but on a paid suspension".

The teacher had also been in the news previous year when, as a then bride-to-be, she became embroiled in a dispute over her custom wedding dress.

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. They called off the wedding after the affair.

She defended herself at the time by saying that the pair were just talking and that the teen was no longer a student. The incident reportedly took place in February 2016.
