A former Alabama high school “teacher of the year” killed herself with a shotgun two days after she was busted for having sex with two teenage students.

Leslie Gillespie, 44, had been arrested Thursday, accused of rape and sodomy of two students at R.A. Hubbard High School who were 15 and 16 at the time, AL.com reported.

The English teacher, who was a staff member at R.A. Hubbard High School in Lawrence County, had been booked on Thursday evening, May 27, on rape and sodomy charges.

According to court records obtained by WAFF, the alleged incident happened in September 2020. One student told investigators that he and another male pupil went to her classroom after school hours, where she performed sex acts on them.

The boys were 15 and 16 at the time.

She was arrested on charges of Second-degree rape; Second-degree sodomy; and School employee engaging in a sex act with a student under the age of 19.

She was immediately placed on leave by the school.

Gillespie was released on $60,000 bail later on Thursday evening.

But at 11:30 AM Saturday morning, deputies from Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office were called to her home, where they discovered her body.

“It appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” county coroner Scott Norwood said, according to AL.com.

Her body has been sent to Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for autopsy and official cause of death.

The Macias children, who are being cared for by Daniel’s parents, have not quite grasped what has happened to their mother and father, Serey said. After Daniel died on Sept. 9, a counselor explained to the two eldest children, 7 and 5, that both of their parents were gone, Serey said. While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
