A Pennsylvania teacher was gunned down on Mother's Day just months after being suspended from her job following a leaked police report stating that officers had found her in a steamed-up parked auto with a 17-year-old boy, reports the Daily Mail.

According to KDKA-TV, DelTondo died at the scene. Neighbors said they heard up to 12 shots fired that night.

Her employer, the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, and the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School then suspended her.

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

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.

Police noted in the report that "the windows were steamed over and the engine was not running".

Inside was DelTondo and the teen.

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. However, the school's CEO found that the teenager was never a registered student at the school.

The email included the police report and a note that DelTondo and the teen had a "relationship" over text messages and Snapchat messages.

But investigators believe DelTondo knew her assailant, and that the evidence will show her murder was "a crime of passion". When asked, DelTonto said that she was "just talking" to her former student, who was "upset and needed someone to talk to".

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

According to District Attorney David Lozier, investigators are trying to collect information from a cell phone that might give information on the case, although the owner of the cell phone was not identified.

DelTondo was suspended from her school in November after allegations of the relationship with a student were made public.

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". However, the check never came in the mail, so the family reached out to their local KDKA-TV reporter, Marty Griffin's segment, "Get Marty". We express our sympathy to her family, friends, and co-workers.

That information led to a suspension from her teaching job at Pa. Cyber.

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.

DelTondo's fiancé reportedly called off the wedding several months after the 2016 incident.

Meanwhile, friends and neighbors are struggling to make sense of what appears to be a senseless crime.

'I don't know why that happened. Dan Casper, a family neighbor, told CBS News: "I don't know why that happened".

Cops say Rachael DelTondo, 32, was shot multiple times in front of her parents' suburban Pittsburgh home.
