DUNBARTON - Flowers now mark the end the driveway to the house where Wendy Tefft was found dead before the holiday weekend. However, many questions remain unanswered about the circumstances of her death.
Dunbarton Police responded to a secluded home at 35 Barnard Hill Road late Thursday night and a suspicious death investigation followed. On Friday, officials from the Attorney General's office identified the victim as Tefft, 38, and a medical examiner confirmed the cause of death was a single gunshot wound.
Investigators have not provided any more details about the incident and would not comment on if any arrests had been made.
On Tuesday, two small arrangements of flowers could be seen next to Tefft's mailbox.
Tuesday was also the first day of school for the Glen Lake School in Goffstown, where Tefft was about to start her third year as a kindergarten teacher. She worked in the Goffstown School District since 2010, and in a statement, the superintendent called her a "beloved kindergarten teacher," adding grief support services have been put into place for staff.
In a letter to parents sent on Saturday, Principal Kathy Stoyle explained the school will not be discussing Tefft's death with students, rather, the school is leaving that to parents and guardians to address. The letter also said, in part, that the school community is "heartbroken and grieving, and our hearts are with all those who loved her." Stoyle also wrote she is proud of how her team is working to overcome the tragedy.
Neither the superintendent nor Stoyle would comment further.
According to her obituary, Tefft is survived by her husband, son, mother-in-law, brother, half-sister and grandmother. Calling hours are planned for this Friday evening in Goffstown, and the funeral service will be private.
