Texas teacher dead in apparent murder-suicide

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Investigators say the bodies of a music teacher at a San Antonio-area school and her boyfriend have been found at their home in an apparent murder-suicide.

Counselors were available Wednesday in the Northside Independent School District to help students and staff deal with the slaying of 50-year-old Deanna Tiller.

Tiller’s body was located Tuesday morning. A co-worker went to the home when the victim didn’t show up at Allen Elementary School as classes resumed following the Presidents Day holiday weekend.

Bexar (bayr) County Sheriff’s spokesman Paul Berry says a man’s body was found with a gunshot wound to the head. Investigators believe the boyfriend, whose name wasn’t immediately released, killed Tiller and then himself on Saturday. Her cause of death wasn’t immediately released.
