Aliquippa Mayor Dwan Walker is urging the people of his community to speak up if they have any information concerning the murder of Rachael Deltondo. Mayor Walker’s call for citizens to assist police stands in sharp contrast to his own behavior in February, when sources say he refused requests by Pennsylvania State Police to speak with them about issues involving the City — including his own police department’s leak of records from sensitive law enforcement databases about Rachael Deltondo to an unauthorized individual in the community.

“I am sending my deepest condolences to her family and friends RWG [Rest With God] RACHEL DELTONDO,” posted Mayor Walker to his Facebook page yesterday. “PLEASE IF YOU KNOW SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING.”

Along with his social media posts, Mayor Walker also appeared on television news last night in a much-hyped interview with WPXI’s Michele Newell. Walker spoke highly of Deltondo during the brief excerpt of his interview that actually aired, “Mrs. Deltondo was a bright light. She didn’t bother anyone. She didn’t hurt anyone.”

Deltondo’s homicide is still under investigation. Sources tell the Beaver Countian that law enforcement currently believes her murder was “a crime of passion.”

As the Beaver Countian first reported last December, the Pennsylvania State Police opened a criminal investigation into the Aliquippa Police Department after records about Rachel Deltondo were leaked by Aliquippa police from a sensitive state-run law enforcement database to an unauthorized individual. The records contained information including the woman’s driver’s license number and photograph, social security number, date of birth, an image of her signature, phone number and home address, along with demographic information.

Pennsylvania State Police have interviewed multiple officers in the Aliquippa Police Department as part of that probe, but one interview State Police have been unable to conduct is with Mayor Dwan Walker, who sources say refused to meet with state investigators when they called him earlier this year. Sources with knowledge of the Pennsylvania State Police’s investigation into the Aliquippa Police Department and the City of Aliquippa say it remains active and ongoing.

Mayor Dwan Walker never returned messages left by the Beaver Countian in February seeking comment. Walker could not be reached for comment at the time of this report.

The pressure is on Mr Mayor….all you want hidden will be out and exposed no matter who you have in your pocket.


Job 34:22 “There is no darkness or deep shadow where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.”

I’m not a person who quotes scripture, but mayor Walker claims to be Godly, so I thought I would try to convey this message in terms of scripture. In reality, he is not Godly, so I’ll say this in a way that mayor Walker and all of these animals can relate to: You fucked now.


Dwan, please stop pretending to be so holy. Even as big and sloppy as you are we can see through you. Phonies like you are a dime a dozen


The BCT article about the murder used nine (9) paragraphs to detail the Feb 2016 incident, but they have yet to mention the cover-up and leak under mayor Walker’s purview even once. The BCT is already in criminal defense mode trying to paint an unflattering picture of the victim. The BCT is, once again, performing journalistic fellatio. BCT, you should be ashamed.


I’m convinced that there is a link between lack of coverage of corruption and the BC Times. They are to Beaver County what the New York Times is to malicious coverage. There is not one ethical journalistic bone in any of their bodies. Shut them down! Then we won’t get all the happy days are here again shit from the county. BTW, Scott Toady what new entertainment do we have?

Well, rumor and innuendo certainly have a comfortable home on here. How many times have I read “this guy is going down!” , “the jail cell is ready for________________”, “EVERYBODY knows about….!” etc., etc. and how many times have we seen charges filed , let alone conviction and punishment? And that’s from the state, the feds, not just the in-bred goings on in Beaver. This will be a murder case, not just a he saw/she said from the courthouse lunchroom. Let’s see what comes from this because we’ve seen it played out before, haven’t we?
