PITTSBURGH – Investigators say theshot dead in her mother's driveway in Aliquippa over the weekend is "a crime of passion". CBS Pittsburgh reports that police investigators say they will take the time to find and convict Rachael DelTondo's killer.
"We could not take this any more seriously … We had a young woman, 33 years old" On the evening of Mother's Day, they shot at the driveway to their mother's house, "said Beaver County District Attorney David Lozier.
Neighborhood researched, surveillance tapes reviewed, and DelTondo's cell phone and others sent to a skilled Harrisburg laboratory to unlock the data, text, and messages.
"We examine everyone who drove in Aliquippa this evening near the house of this young lady." Lozier will not say if the police have a suspect, but investigators believe that DelTondo knew their assailant and that the evidence will show that their murder was "a crime of passion."
Lozier said the neighborhood should not fear a chance murderer.
"From what we know, no," said Lozier.
Two years ago, DelTondo police arrived in a parked car with a teenage student. She was questioned but not charged.
A year later, however, a report on the incident was passed on to the press. Her employer, the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School and the Charter School for Lincoln Park Performing Arts, then suspended her.
Lozier says this wrongly.
"It is embarrassing that this woman was repainted with a police report, no criminal charges," said Lozier. "It was a personal revenge against her at the time."
Over the next few days, the investigators will sift through the evidence and examine their interpersonal relationships to find a motive and a suspect.
Officials say it will take some time for investigators to collect the forensic evidence from the phones that were brought to Harrisburg. They'll wait for that to come back before they make any conclusions in the case.
In the meantime, they say no arrest is imminent.
