The body of Vanessa MacCormack, a Boston area second-grade teacher, was discovered in her home on Sunday.
According to People, no arrests have been made in the case just yet.
Preliminary examinations on MacCormack's body showed signs of trauma, but police would not elaborate on the matter. A medical examiner will make a more thorough examination and determine a cause of death in the near future.
“While the facts and circumstances do not immediately suggest a random incident, authorities said the investigation is still in its early stages," says a statement from the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.
Andrew MacCormack, Vanessa's husband, could be seen crying at the scene of the crime.
“Words could never describe my sister,” said Angela Masucci, the victim's sister. “My sister was the world’s best mother, she did everything for her daughter and had so many plans for her. She never missed an opportunity to bring her places to show off her beautiful baby."
“Our school community is heartbroken,” said Dr. Mary Dill, Principal of William P. Connery Elementary School, where Vanessa worked. “Vanessa was loved by students, parents, and colleagues. She was involved in every aspect of the school and a great friend to everyone on the staff. She will be dearly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family."
"There were no arguments, no parties, no anything," said neighbor Tony Gnerre, who characterized the couple as quiet. "Usually we don't see anything of this kind going on, but you don't know."
Police are currently asking anyone with information on the case to call in at 781-286-8340 or 617-727-8817.
