Yesterday, Officer T Lopez, while working off duty security at Central High School, was informed by Central High School Administration about an inappropriate relationship between a Teacher's Aide and a student.
The mother of an 18 year old male student spoke with Central High School Administration about her concern of a possible relationship between 43 year old Teacher's Aide Monica Way and her son. The mother became concerned after reading text message conversations between Way and her son on her son's cell phone.
Detective Jeremy Cannady responded to Central High School to conduct an investigation of the allegation. During the investigation, Detective Cannady learned Monica Way had a sexual relationship with the 18 year old student.
After the investigation, Detective Cannady applied for a warrant for the arrest of Monica Way for Improper Relationship between Educator and Student. Way turned herself in on the warrant at 5:38 am this morning at the Tom Green County Jail.
Yesterday, at 5:19 pm, San Angelo Police responded to a traffic crash in the 3100 block of Woodlawn where a car had collided with a young boy on a scooter.
Officers arrived on scene quickly and began to render aid to the child until San Angelo Fire Department personnel were on scene to take over. The child, 8 year old Zachary Cano, was transported to Shannon Hospital for incapacitating injuries. Zachary succumbed to his injuries at 6:10 pm and was pronounced deceased by Justice of the Peace McGuire.
Officer Josh Loudermilk and Sgt Todd Dornhecker with the Traffic Division along with Detective Chris Soto and Sgt Dennis McGuire with the Criminal Investigation Division responded to investigate the crash.
