etradefactory.comFifth Grade Teacher Arrested for Making a “Kill List” A fifth grade teacher has been arrested after telling one of her students that she had made a ‘kill list’ of the students she teaches and their peers. Around 5 p.m. Wednesday, officers from the East Chicago Police Department were dispatched to speak with the principal and vice principal of St. Stanislaus School — about 20 miles south of downtown Chicago — regarding a threatening report school officials earlier reported learning about the day from fifth-grade teacher Angelica Carrasquillo-Torres, a 25-year-old preschool teacher from Griffith, Indiana. “At approximately 12:45 p.m. a 5th grade student told his/her Counselor that their 5th grade teacher made comments to him/her about killing herself, students, and staff at St. Stanislaus School,” East Chicago Police Department said in a statement released on social media. “The teacher further told the student that she has a list and that he/she was on the bottom of that list.” School officials said the teacher was immediately escorted to the principal’s office to discuss the disturbing incident and then admitted to them that he had made those statements to the student and also confirmed that he had a “death list”.

However, as soon as officers were notified, they immediately called CID, who obtained an emergency arrest warrant for the housekeeper from the Lake County District Attorney’s Office. Carrasquillo-Torres was uneventfully arrested by East Chicago police at around 11:15 am Thursday. It is unclear whether Carrasquillo-Torres received legal assistance, but the investigation is still ongoing and authorities have said no further details on the case or statements about the incident have been released at this time.
