U.S. : A missing New Jersey teacher found dead in a shallow grave

The body of a kinder­garten teacher found in a shal­low grave in a New Jer­sey town was recov­ered Tues­day, police said.

Luz Her­nan­dez, a 33-year-old moth­er of three from Jer­sey City, was absent from her job at BelovED Char­ter School on Mon­day after notic­ing her fam­i­ly had­n’t spo­ken to her over the weekend.

A search war­rant was issued for her. NBC New York report­ed. As a result of the wel­fare inves­ti­ga­tion by the author­i­ties, a trag­ic fig­ure was discovered.

Her­nan­dez’s cause and man­ner of death have not been deter­mined pend­ing the find­ings of the coro­ner’s office. At this time, the offi­cial state­ment is that his death is suspicious.

Pros­e­cu­tors are active­ly investigating.

“She was one of the best teach­ers, and she was loved by every­one. It makes her feel very mixed.” Her­nan­dez’s cousin told NBC New York, “We just want jus­tice.” I just want it,” he said.

“We love her, her fam­i­ly, her friends. She’s a won­der­ful girl and it’s unfair for some­one to take her life, why?”

Accord­ing to NBC New York, the BelovED Char­ter School will be closed Wednes­day so stu­dents and staff can mourn.
