Music Teacher Walks Into Church During Sunday Mass And Shoots And Kills His Ex-Wife

Music Teacher Walks Into Church During Sunday Mass And Shoots And Kills His Ex-Wife
World

An elementary school music teacher walked into a church during the middle of a mass on Sunday and shot and killed his ex-wife, while she was playing the organ.

Gregory Eldred, 52, has been charged with first-degree murder after allegedly shooting his ex-wife, Darlene Sitler, also 53, at the First United Presbyterian Church in Coudersport, Pennyslvania.

Sitler served the church as organist and choir director.


After the shooting, other members of the congregation quickly grabbed Eldred, and nobody else was hurt in the incident.

Witnesses said that the elementary school music teacher entered the rear door of the church at around 11 a.m. and then slowly walked up the middle of the church before shooting his wife who was sitting in the organ pit. 

‘It’s hard to even comprehend it. You just feel this tremendous grief and you’re trying to process what happened,’ said Pottery County Commissioner Susan Kefover.

As if church organs didn’t have a certain mystique already, this one will certainly feel haunted.
