Rachael Del Tondo reportedly was suspended from her teaching job at Pa. Cyber after confidential information allegedly leaked from the Aliquippa Police concerning her and a former student

Six months before her death, the school where DelTondo taught suspended her after police reportedly discovered her in a vehicle with steamed-up windows in the wee hours of the morning - with a 17-year-old boy.

DelTondo, who was 32 at the time of her death, was shot after telling her family that she was out with a friend, according to WPXI. Around 10:30 p.m. Sunday night, police were called to the scene on Buchanan street, where DelTondo had been shot just after getting out of her auto.

On May 14, 2018, in an otherwise a quiet lane in Beaver County, one of the DelTondo's neighbors counted six gunshots being fired outside the family's home.

DelTondo had worked as an elementary school teacher at Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School for ten years until her October 2017 suspension.

According to reports, an anonymous October email tipped off school officials to the 2016 incident.

The report stated that officers were on patrol at around 1.50am on February 6, 2016, when they saw a auto parked near the old Aliquippa Hospital.

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 auto with steamed windows alongside a 17-year-old student of hers.

Inside was DelTondo and the teen.

Investigators say the murder of a former teacher who was gunned down in her mother's driveway in Aliquippa over the weekend was "a crime of passion".

The incident report named the teen and it was confirmed that he was not registered at the charter school. Investigations uncovered a relationship between the two over Snapchat and via text messages. DelTondo told police that the teen was upset and they were friends who were just talking.

She begged police not to press charges because: "She didn't want her fiancé to know that she was here parked because he would get mad".

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

The school announced they were suspending her the following month.

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. "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".

DelTondo reportedly contacted the bridal shop to tell them that she wanted to pay off the balance on the dress for resale, but she allegedly never received the dress. A police report from 2016 said the two were found in a "steamed-up" parked vehicle around 2 a.m. Officials said they are looking at a cellphone for information.
