A teacher at St. Stanislaus School in East Chicago, Indiana was arrested Thursday after it was discovered that she had made threatening comments toward students and kept a “kill list”, according to officials.
Angelica Carrasquillo-Torres, 25, of Griffith, was arrested Thursday morning at her residence after an emergency detention order was approved by East Chicago police.
According to WGN-TV, officers arrived at the school at approximately 5 p.m. on Wednesday following a report to a counselor from a student earlier in the day that their 5th grade teacher had made comments about killing herself, students and staff at the school.
Furthermore, the student said the teacher told them that she has a “kill list”, and that they were at the bottom of the list.
