In November, DelTondo was suspended from Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School after it was revealed in a 2016 police report that she was found in a car with a 17-year-old male student. He went to a different school.

Aliquippa police leaked DelTondo's confidential information about her and the student, KDKA reported.

DelTondo was engaged at the time and no charges were filed. The wedding was later called off.

The school released a statement saying it was saddened by DelTondo’s tragic death.
