Missing GA Teacher Found Dead in Mexico

Sadly, the case of the missing 24-year-old Georgia teacher has been solved.

Alexandra Morales, who taught school near Atlanta, was found by the roadside in Mexico.

Morales had gone to Mexico to go to a concert and had been missing since October 30.

Sad Discovery

Morales was a first-grade teacher at Benefield Elementary School in Lawrenceville, GA.

She had last been seen in or around the Guadalajara, Mexico, area.

After being seen at the concert, family and friends were unable to contact her.

Sloan Roach, a spokeswoman for Gwinnett County Public Schools, stated, “We were all very hopeful that they would find her and she would be returning safely but that was not the case.”

Police have reported that a person of interest is in custody related to her murder.

However, no further details were given, nor was it apparent as to the cause of death.

Destiny Porter, whose son was taught by Morales, stated, “It’s never easy finding out that somebody in your school community has passed away, especially if they were a part of your children’s lives.

“We decided to tell the kids together as we do most things.

“They were a little upset. I don’t think it’s really set in yet. They have questions like anybody does.”

Yessica Ortero, a close friend of Morales’ stated, “(I) never would have thought she was going to be found dead.

“You don’t — you don’t expect that.

“I knew she was going to a concert because she had been posting about it. I don’t know, I’m still in shock. You know, it’s sad.”

  1. It’s really sad that a young women who wanted to go to a concert in a foreign country, could NOT have
    gone there, enjoyed the concert & then return home safely. She was a very attractive person, & probably should not have been unaccompanied. Young people should go out in groups.

  2. I am so sorry to hear that. Everyone should be in a group any more. Well it can happen.
    I am sure the Community and the kids are going to be devastated from this. You just never know.
    She probably should never have posted it any place on Social Media. That can be seen by people that do not like her. Hope they find who did it.

  3. Stupid people know the dangers of these countried but dont care. They know the risk so I can’t feel the least bit sorry for them.
