REVERE, Mass. - A second grade teacher found dead in her Revere Home was the victim of a homicide, but officials won’t say if they know who did it.
Vanessa MacCormack, 30, was found dead with obvious signs of trauma in her home on Grand View Avenue Saturday, according to police.
No arrests have been made and police haven’t released any suspect information.
"[I’m] disappointed they haven't given us something to feel at ease a little bit, you know, cause a lot of kids live around here and everybody is just really concerned,” a neighbor named Sarah told Boston 25 News.
Grief counselors were on hand Monday at Connery Elementary School, where MacCormack was a beloved second grade teacher.
MacCormack’s devastated family hasn’t spoken publicly as they deal with the tragic loss and answers as to what happened remain hard to find.
The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office say they are waiting on the results of the autopsy to confirm a cause of death. Thus far they’ve kept details of the ‘obvious trauma’ out of the public in case someone comes forward with information.
"I just want to know what's going on,” said Sarah.
MacCormack has taught at Connery Elementary for the past five years. On Sunday, her principal released a statement:
"Our school community is heartbroken. Vanessa was loved by many students, parents and colleagues. She was involved in every aspect of the school and a great friend to everyone on the staff. She will be dearly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family."
