Police have made an arrest in the July murder of 29-year-old high school teacher Simeonette Mapes-Crupi. According to reports, early this morning police arrested Mapes-Crupi's husband, Jonathan Crupi, at the home of his mother. Sources tell the Staten Island Advance "he is in custody at 120th Precinct in St. George and is expected to be charged with murder." Luckily for him, he has a lawyer.

On July 5th, Mapes-Crupi, who taught at the School for Classics: An Academy of Thinkers, Writers and Performers in East New York, Brooklyn, was "found" lifeless in a pool of blood in her apartment's entryway by her husband and fellow teacher, Jonathan Crupi. Though the scene initially appeared to have been a home invasion gone wrong, investigators soon found no evidence of forced entry into the condo and quickly their suspicions turned towards the husband. Mapes-Crupi had been stabbed 15 times.

"I had a deep feeling that is was him, and this is going to prove that it is," Nick Liverani, the uncle of Mapes-Crupi, told the Advance. "This was a long time coming."

Days before her murder, Mapes-Crupi and her husband had a brush with gun violence that left the teacher shaken.
