The jail cell of a Beaver County inmate and the law offices of his defense attorney have been raided by Beaver County Detectives and Aliquippa Police over a mysterious handwritten letter, allegedly containing an eyewitness account to the murder of Rachael DelTondo.

Now the defense attorney and his client are being forced into silence by a Beaver County judge at the request of the District Attorney.

Beaver Countian investigative reporter John Paul worked in collaboration with a news team from The Daily Mail out of New York City, to bring you an in-depth report about dramatic events taking place outside of public view in the DelTondo murder investigation.

The Daily Mail is one of the largest news site in the world, with 240 million unique monthly readers, 80 million of them in the U.S. The report can be read on DailyMail.com at the following link:

What did the note say! Lots of people are saying it was planted by the cops.

People will be saying all sorts of things as we know just from the comments here alone. We should hold our judgment until facts come out. I want to know what it said too but we’re not going to find that out for a while or whether or not the cops planted it. This entire thing is such a huge fiasco. I can’t imagine how difficult this all is for her family and friends.

C’mon wind!!!! Do you really believe if the police planted anything on anybody or anywhere that the public will just learn about it soon enough? Please if you do believe that then sell everything, cash out 401k etc and quickly go purchase a CLUE! Cuz you are literally quite lacking of one!….#Clueless

Link within that article tells more.
The letter, in part, reads: ‘I heard the gunshots and seen her fall… I don’t want to be part of this. They won’t send me [to jail] if I tell them what really happened.’
The letter was allegedly sent to Beaver County Jail inmate Wayne Cordes by Kayle Hill, 22, his ex-girlfriend and mother of his son, on behalf of someone else.

Inside the envelope was a letter from Hill and a second letter, handwritten in red ink, and allegedly signed by a friend of the inmate, who claimed to be a witness to DelTondo’s murder.

Kayle Hill told the Beaver Countian that a friend of her ex-boyfriend gave her the letter in the days following DelTondo’s murder.

I just don’t understand how anyone can be convicted for the murder at this point. There is so much reasonable doubt that could be conjured up from ANY angle. Any defense attorney could create reasonable doubt for any potential defendants. This is really unfortunate because this case deserves true justice.

I agree with you. But a conspiracy to commit case seems to be alive and well. They didn’t get Capone for murder, but he spent the rest of his life in jail anyway.

Notasoprano. I agree. That’s if there is a trial. I don’t know where JP is getting his reliable information. I did hear from others close to the case that did say a couple of eye opening things.
1. She knew absolutely nothing about the corruption in Aliquippa. Zero, nothing
2. Her only possible connection to the APD is the possibility of sexual relationship with one or more officers.
3. People were interjecting themselves into this investigation (including this site)hampering the investigation early on.
4. JP’s interactions with the victim did not glean any useful information for investigators.
5. They have a person of interest and are waiting on the evidence to be processed.
6. This will never make it to trial. They got enough to force a plea.
I guess we shall soon see

Suspect everything like I said before this is Beaver County. Very possible that the black community in Aliquippa will sacrifice one or two of there own people with the co operation of there own families. Serve them up. so they can be thrown a few crumbs. Must be nice to have a massive selection of section eight housing residents to do your dirty work. provides great deniability. And look at us we are heroes we solved the case. Do they actually think people don’t know all of this. This stuff is a matter of life and death . It really can come to your families door. Dont delude yourselves.

That is an extra ordinate amount of thumbs down for this page. You either caught all the trolls or are correct. Sadly if you grew up in Quip and live in that level of poverty there is no denying that you’re correct.
