A man linked to the unsolved homicide of an Aliquippa teacher was found unconscious along a road early Sunday, hours after a “48 Hours” episode on the 2018 killing aired on television.

Sheldon Jeter Jr. was found unconscious about 4 a.m. near the intersection of Sheffield Avenue and Orchard Street, according to Tribune-Review news partner WPXI-TV.

Jeter, 21, has been the subject of police questioning and search warrants in connection with the killing of Rachael DelTondo, who was gunned down in her family’s driveway on Mother’s Day 2018.

Police have not publicly named a suspect in the shooting of 33-year-old DelTondo.

The TV station reported that first responders gave Jeter a dose of the overdose-reversal drug Narcan, but it was not clear if he was suffering from an overdose.

Acting Aliquippa Police Chief Robert Sealock could not immediately be reached for comment.

DelTondo had been with Sheldon Jeter’s brother, Tyrie Jeter, and friend Lauren Watkins in the hours before police received a report of a shooting at 10:48 p.m. Watkins had dropped DelTondo off at her parents’ Buchanan Street home about four minutes earlier.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
