DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
An Indiana school teacher has been accused of telling one of her students that they were on her “kill list”, which included other students and school staff members, police said. The teacher, Angelica Carrasquillo-Torres, 25, has now been arrested. A fifth-grade student at St Stanislaus School in East Chicago went to a counsellor on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, and said the teacher made comments about killing herself, students, and other staff members.
East Chicago Police Department said the teacher allegedly told the student they were at the bottom of her kill list. She was immediately taken to the school principal’s office, admitting that she had made the statement to the student. She also admitted to having a kill list but refused to hand it over. The principal asked the teacher to leave the school and not return.
“The East Chicago Police Department was not made aware of the situation until 4 hours later after the teacher was allowed to leave. Once Officers were notified they completed a report and notified the Criminal Investigation Division,” East Chicago Police Department wrote in a Facebook post. “On Thursday, October 13, 2022, the Criminal Investigation Division was able to obtain an emergency detention order for the teacher, from the Lake County Prosecutors Office. The teacher who was identified as 25yr old Angelica Carrasquillo-Torres of Griffith was taken into custody by our Detectives at approximately 11:15 am at her Griffith residence without incident. This is still an active investigation and no further statements will be made at this time,” they added.
“I’m, like, scared and worried,” said Portia Jones, the student said, according to ABC7. “She said she wanted to choke us, and she wanted to kill herself.” “They need to work on this one because this is something serious,” said her father, Quiannis Jones. “She’s, probably, not ever going back there.”
East Chicago police said although the students alerted the counsellor around 12:45 pm, police were called only four hours later. The teacher was allowed to leave before that. “They should have never let her walk out the doors. They should’ve called the police right then and there. That’s a threat to the school,” Quiannis Jones added.
“We were informed of a concerning report from a student regarding comments made by the student’s teacher,” St Stanislaus principal Angelica Foy told the school community in an email obtained by WGN. “The teacher was immediately removed from the classroom and detained [while] we investigated the incident. After students were safely dismissed, the teacher was escorted off campus, and we notified the police,” the email read.
