Sandy Hook Victim Rachel D'Avino Died Days Before A Wedding Proposal

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLove LineSad SadWedding Waltz


There are so many tragic tales coming out of Newtown, CT, it's impossible to begin to comprehend them all.

Rachel D'Avino was a behavioral therapist employed at Sandy Hook Elementary, and she will never know that her boyfriend Anthony Cerritelli planned to propose to her on Christmas Eve.

According to close friend Lissa Lovetere Stone, Anthony had just asked Rachel's parents for permission to take their daughter's hand in marriage and he planned to pop the question in several days.

Lissa says Rachel was an exemplary individual, especially in caring for children with special needs. She revealed:

"I think she taught me more about how to be a good mother to a special needs child than anyone else ever had… Her job didn’t end when the school bell rang at 3 o’clock."

According to Lissa, the police told Rachel's grieving family that she heroically shielded a student during Adam Lanza's horrific killing spree.

Rachel was 29 when her life was taken on Friday.

    PLEASE stop using the shooters name, all you're doing is glorifying him and encourages more people to do these horrific crimes because they are seeking attention. And YOU are giving it to them. People can argue about gun control, and the states need better mental health options, but the publicity that news reporters give and gossip bloggers such as yourself give to these murders only encourages more mass murders. I know you probably don't care. But PLEASE just say "the suspect" instead of his name!

    Re: petluva22 – I agree. Look at Anderson Cooper, he reported the news like a real journalist. This is what he said on his his and I think other people should take note.
    “We are going to give you all the latest information tonight but what we won’t do, what we will not do is repeat the shooter’s name over and over again. We don’t want history to remember the murderer. We want history to remember the victims- the teachers, the children; those whose lives have been so unfairly taken.”

    I agree about not repeating the shooter's names but I do think stories like this need to be told to honour the victims and their lives. These are the heroes who reinforce my faith in humanity in the face of tragedies.

    Souless. What the hell is going on ? First of all this tragedy is not "celebrity news", secondly let's talk INSENSITIVE…."get the look"? What the fuck? Perez you need to stick to your original idea of gossip and celebrity related news. You are not, by any stretch, a journalist and to try to report on true news stories does them a dis-service. I don't visit this web site to get today's headlines. What's next, stock tips?
