• Letter prompts dramatic turn in DelTondo murder investigation

    Updated:

    The monthlong unsolved murder of Rachael Deltondo is now focusing on mail sent to the Beaver County Jail. 

    Channel 11 confirmed through multiple sources an inmate received a handwritten letter describing details about the night of the murder and it was signed by someone police have interviewed.

    Attorney Mike Santicola, who represents Sheldon Jeter Jr., a man police have interviewed and served several search warrants on, told Channel 11 this latest development takes the focus off of his client.

    Channel 11 reached out to the Beaver County district attorney, who says he cannot comment on sealed search warrants.
