Once the trail on a murder case goes cold, it becomes increasingly impossible to catch the killer. Now that Rachael DelTondo’s murder has gone over a year without being solved, it’s looking like her killer will perhaps never be brought to justice. After getting ice cream with her best friend on May 13th, 2018, Rachael was shot and killed in her own driveway that Sunday evening.
David Lozier, the Beaver County District Attorney, insists that Rachael will not just be another statistic. He says he is very happy with where the investigation into her death is going, and he’s confident Rachael’s killer will pay for what they did.
Here are all the recent updates in Rachael DelTondo’s murder investigation and everything you need to know, below. There are definitely more shocking details being brought to light that we didn’t know about before.

We’re going to quickly recap what happened, first. Rachael DelTondo was suspended from her job as an elementary school teacher following an incident with an underage student who attended another local school.
The student was just 17-years-old at the time, and his name was Sheldon Jeter Jr. Rachael knew him very well because she used to date his older brother, Rashawn Bolton. Not only did Rachael date Rashawn, but she was also out getting ice cream with him the night she was murdered.
Police found the two of them parked in Rachael’s car late one night in a wooded area with the windows steamed up. Rachael and Sheldon both told police that they were just talking that night, but their late night chat led to Rachael’s suspension from her job and the end of her engagement, even though no charges were ever filed against Rachael.
