Catholic School Teacher Caught With ‘Kill List’ Of Students And Staff

Indiana Catholic school teacher’s ‘kill list’ included at least one student, officials say – NBC News

On Wednesday, October 12, at approximately 12:45 p.m., a teacher was removed from the classroom and escorted to the principal’s office. The reason for this visit was something completely unexpected- she was creating a ‘kill list.’

Officers were dispatched to St. Stanislaus School in East Chicago in reference to a threatening report regarding fifth-grade teacher Angelica Carrasquillo-Torres.

A 5th-grade student told their counselor that the teacher made comments about killing herself, students, and staff. School officials said the teacher made disturbing statements to a student and admitted having a “kill list”, but did not provide the list.

The East Chicago Police Department was notified four hours after the incident and immediately obtained an emergency detention order for the teacher.

East Chicago police arrested Carrasquillo-Torres Thursday morning at her home after an emergency detention order was approved. It is unclear if the teacher has been fired from St. Stanislaus School.


The St. Stanislaus School shared a statement on Facebook referencing an incident involving Angelica Carrasquillo-Torres. The teacher was escorted off campus and the police department was notified about the incident.

Parents are upset with how the school went about informing them of this incident and were disturbed by the teacher’s actions.
