Letter to the editor: Rachael DelTondo deserves justice

An Iowa police department was able to make an arrest in the murder of Mollie Tibbetts, the 20-year-old Iowa University student who vanished, in only 33 days. It was a heartbreaking end to a sad story. There were no extensive cellphone records, no witnesses to her movements, but authorities there located her body and identified, arrested and charged a suspect.

Compare that to the case of Rachael DelTondo, brutally murdered in her mother’s driveway on Mother’s Day, over 100 days ago. DelTondo’s cellphone records, virtually up to the minute she is executed, are documented. And her movements the entire night of her death and the people she was with are well known. Yet no one has been arrested, or even named a suspect? Something’s not right in Beaver County.

Rachael DelTondo deserves justice, and the people of Beaver County deserve answers.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
