CBS Pittsburgh reports that police investigators say they'll take all the time they need to find and convict the killer of Rachael DelTondo.

"We could not be taking this more seriously. We had a young woman, 33-years-old, shot to death on the driveway of her mother's house on Mother's Day evening," said Beaver County District Attorney David Lozier.

They've been canvassing the neighborhood, reviewing surveillance tapes, and have sent DelTondo's cell phone and others to a lab in Harrisburg to unlock the data, texts and communications.

Suspended Pennsylvania school teacher's murder was 'a crime of passion,' investigators say

  Suspended Pennsylvania school teacher's murder was 'a crime of passion,' investigators say The suspended Pennsylvania school teacher who died on her mother's driveway after being struck by a barrage of bullets Sunday knew her killer and was murdered in “a crime of passion,” investigators said Tuesday. Rachael DelTondo, 33, was gunned down on Mother’s Day outside her family's Aliquippa home after returning from the ice cream shop with a friend. DelTondo — who was suspended from her teaching position at Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School after being caught with an underage student in a steamed-up car — was struck at least 10 times. Neighbors said they heard up to 12 shots fired that night.

Libya subsequently fell to jihadist rebels allied with Al-Qaeda, militants who had killed U.S. troops in Iraq and went on to kill four Americans during the Benghazi siege – all because Clinton had a personal vendetta with Gaddafi over his support for Barack Obama.

"We're investigating everyone that was driving in Aliquippa that night that was anywhere near this young lady's house," Lozier said.

Lozier won't say if police have a suspect. But investigators believe DelTondo knew her assailant, and that the evidence will show her murder was "a crime of passion."

Lozier did say that the neighborhood should not fear a random killer.

"From what we know, no," said Lozier.

Two years ago, police came upon DelTondo in a parked car with a juvenile student. She was questioned but not charged.

However, a year later, a report of the incident was leaked to the press. Her employer, the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, and the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School then suspended her.

Lozier says wrongfully so.

"It's shameful that this woman was painted with a police report that had been written that did not result in criminal charges," Lozier said. "It was a personal vendetta against her at the time."

Over the next few days, investigators will sift through the evidence and examine her 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 taken to Harrisburg. They will wait for that to come back before making any conclusions in the case.

In the meantime, they say no arrest is imminent.

FORT WORTH, Texas - When Stacy Bailey was summoned to a meeting with Mansfield school district associate superintendent Kimberly Cantu, it didn't take long for her sexual orientation to become a topic of discussion. Her case has drawn national attention as her supporters ask Mansfield school district leaders why she is no longer teaching at Charlotte Anderson Elementary in Arlington. She has twice been voted teacher of the year and received "exemplary reviews," her attorney said in a media advisory.
