    A woman who was found dead in a home in Revere, Massachusetts, has been identified by police as a second grade teacher at Connery Elementary School.

    Vanessa MacCormick, 30, was found dead at a home on Grand View Avenue on Saturday at about 4 p.m. Police are still investigating the cause of MacCormick's death.

    According to officials, the preliminary examination of the body revealed signs of trauma. Authorities declined to go into details, adding only that the act of violence was not random. The investigation is still considered to be in the early stages.

    Neighbors said the victim lived at the home with her significant other and a young child. 

    On Saturday, the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office said there were no suspects or persons of interest at this time. 

    The family of 30-year-old Venessa McCormick posted a statement on Facebook, saying "she was an amazing mother, sister, daughter, friend, cousin, wife and teacher. She did not deserve this." 

    School district leaders released a statement saying, "Our school community is heartbroken. Venessa was loved by students, parents and colleagues." 

    Connery Elementary School is providing grief counselors for teachers and students for the remainder of the week. 

    Police are asking anyone with information on McCormick's death, or who made observations in the Grand View Avenue area, to contact the Revere Police at 781-286-8340 or State Police at 617-727-8817.
