Husband arrested for murder of second-grade teacher

The husband of a Massachusetts second-grade teacher found dead in her home has been arrested for murder, police said.

Andrew MacCormack was arrested Tuesday after the body of his wife, Vanessa MacCormack, was discovered at their house in Revere, news station WCVB reported.

“The evidence suggests that her murder was a crime of domestic violence, committed in the very place where she should have been safest — her own home,” Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said.

Police responded Saturday afternoon to a 911 call from Andrew MacCormack.

The 30-year-old wife was unresponsive when authorities arrived and showed signs of trauma on her body.

Medical examiners said she suffered a blunt force injury to the head, sharp injuries to the neck and asphyxiation.

Authorities reviewed surveillance camera footage in the investigation.

“Evidence suggested that the killer made concerted efforts to clean up the crime scene and dispose of related items,” Conley said.

The couple shared a 1-year-old daughter, according to family members.

“My sister was the world’s best mother,” her sister Angela Masucci told WBZ-TV. “She did everything for her daughter and had so many plans for her.”

Vanessa MacCormmack taught at Connery Elementary School in Lynn, where she was remembered this week.

“Our school community is heartbroken,” Principal Mary Dill said in a statement obtained by MassLive. “Vanessa was loved by students, parents and colleagues.”

Her husband is set to be arraigned for the killing Wednesday in Chelsea District Court, CBS News reported.
