Suspended teacher shot dead in driveway on Mother’s Day police

Rachael DelTondo, a teacher at Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, was shot to death in her mother's driveway on May 13.

After coming home from an ice-cream shop at around 11:00 p.m., DelTondo went up to her mother's driveway on Buchanan Street and was gunned down.

Ms DelTondo died at the scene, 35 kilometres northwest of Pittsburgh.

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

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

Though she was suspended by Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, DelTondo was never charged.

A mother of a former Aliquippa High School student also told WPXI about an incident involving DelTondo and the woman's 16-year-old son.

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

The incident, which took place early 2016, involved an officer finding Deltondo and the juvenile parked near Aliquippa Hospital property, noting that "the windows were steamed over and the engine was not running".

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.

However, School CEO Brian Hayden said records show the teen was never a registered student at PA Cyber.

During the confrontation with officers, DelTondo reportedly told police that she and the teen were "friends" and that they were "just talking" because he was "upset".

It is speculated that DelTondo knew her assailant, but neither the district attorney nor local police are commenting on the investigation.

No charges were brought against DelTondo over the incident, and police drove the teen home that evening.

"The reason this report was not filed in February 2016 with the Aliquippa School District, Children and Youth Services and a mandated report to the Department of Education was because it was an attempted cover up", the second email reads. The school suspended DelTondo a month after receiving the tip.

He wrote: "We were saddened this morning to learn of the tragic death of Rachel DelTondo, apparently the result of a violent incident in the City of Aliquippa". Once a victim of a confidential information leak, reports suggest that the state police investigation that followed may have possibly led to her death. "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.

Earlier a year ago, DelTondo was in the press over a dispute with a bridal shop over her wedding dress. Her mom, Lisa DelTondo, bought her a $10,000 wedding dress from Anne Gregory Bridal in Dormont.

Rachael DelTondo was supposed to tie the knot in 2017, but only four months later, the wedding was called off.

DelTondo reportedly put a $4,600 non-refundable deposit down on the custom dress.
