Over the weekend, a beloved Florida teacher was discovered dead beside her boyfriend in a suspected murder-suicide after authorities responded to the sounds of her baby daughter’s screams.

Amanda Hicks, 26, was discovered dead on the floor of her home at the Peacock Run apartments on Northwest East Torino Parkway in Port St. Lucie around 11:45 a.m. Saturday, according to WPTV.

According to the outlet, when police arrived, they could hear a baby crying from inside the locked apartment.

Hicks was a teacher at Dr. David L. Anderson Middle School at the time of her death, according to CBS12.

Though neither she nor her partner have been formally identified by police, principal Darcia Borel identified her as the female victim in a memo to staff members.

“The Port St. Lucie Police Department has confirmed that Ms. Hicks was the victim of a homicide,” Borel wrote.

“While words will never be enough to convey the shock and sadness this news has brought to our school family, it is more important than ever to come together to support one another through our grief journey.

“Additional information about memorials and opportunities for supporting Amanda’s beautiful little girl will be forthcoming.”

Though Martin County Schools’ last day was Friday, counselors will be available on campus Tuesday for students who want to talk about the sudden tragedy.

“She just lit up the room. She had such a big, beautiful smile. She was always happy and always energetic,” Magallon recalled.

“This is like really shocking and really sad … She was just an angel. She was the most happiest person. She definitely brightened my day every time I saw her and I just don’t know what happened with this situation. I know she’s at peace now, but I pray that she didn’t suffer because she definitely doesn’t deserve to go out like that.”

According to police, no additional information about the incident will be released.

They don’t believe anybody else was involved and aren’t looking for any other suspects.
