Rachael DelTondo

CBS News

A former schoolteacher shot to death in her mother's driveway likely was the victim of a crime of passion, investigators told a Pennsylvania television station.

Investigators are searching surveillance video and cellphones for clues in the death of Rachael DelTondo, 33, who was shot multiple times on Sunday in Aliquippa.

Television station KDKA quoted unidentified investigators as saying they believed the woman knew her attacker. Beaver County District Attorney David Lozier is declining to comment on a possible motive or whether she may have known the gunman.

DelTondo was suspended in November from a cyber school. Officials there had received an anonymous email containing a police report saying DelTondo had been found in a parked car with a 17-year-old former student. No charges were filed, and Lozier called the report's circulation "a personal vendetta" against DelTondo.
