Woman thought to be teacher found dead in Victorville classroom

A woman thought to be a teacher was found dead early Tuesday morning in a classroom at a Victorville middle school, authorities said.  

San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials received a call about a woman passed out at Mesa Linda Middle School at 7:44 a.m. before any students had arrived, said department spokeswoman Cindy Bachman.

“They determined almost immediately that the woman was not breathing,” Bachman said. “Medical aid responded and she was confirmed dead there at the school.”

Bachman said authorities are conducting an investigation and added “at this point there does not appear to be anything suspicious about her death.” Bachman said the school was placed on lockdown when the Fire Department arrived, and the coroner was summoned just before 9 a.m.

Casuandra Aaron, assistant to the superintendent for the Adelanto School District, would not immediately comment. She declined to say whether the school remained locked down nor would she confirm whether the woman was a teacher.
