Woman kills husband's mistress then turns gun on herself, police say

The police believe Gerardot disguised herself for her trip from DE and broke into Chapman's home.

Former University of DE communications official Meredith Chapman died Monday in what Pennsylvania law enforcement officers say was a murder-suicide.

Police believe that Jennair Gerardot ( police spelling Gennair Gerardot), 47, of Wilmington, De., entered the property by breaking a pain of glass in the door.

It was Mark Gerardot who made the discovery, police say, after Chapman failed to show up for a date.

Meredith Chapman's death follows her recently moving to her new three story home following her departure at the University of DE where her love interest continued to work.

Police state the bodies were found at the back of the home when Mark went in search of Chapman, and after neighbours alerted authorities about gunshots in the area.

Radnor Police Superintendent William Colarulo said the incident was a calculated attack.

"There were emails and text messages indicating what [Jennair] might do", Colarulo said, New York Post reported. When the police arrived they found Mark outside Chapman's house.

One of the last people to see Chapman alive was reportedly a neighbor, who told The Philadelphia Inquirer that she saw Chapman pull into her driveway and then heard an unnerving sound that didn't make sense in their quiet community.

'She broke into the house.

Chapman unsuccessfully ran as a Republican against Democratic State Senator Dave Sokola in 2016.

She took to Facebook to share how much she was enjoying her new job less than two hours before her death. That's when he headed to her home, police said.

Chapman left UD in March and started a job as an assistant vice president at Villanova University.

A spokeswoman for Chapman family said they were "heartbroken and requests privacy and respect as they grieve". Later, he was a creative director at the University of DE and reportedly worked there with Chapman for a time.

Gerardot shot Chapman as soon as she walked in, authorities said Tuesday.

'Meredith and Luke Chapman are close friends.

"Our hearts are broken by the devastating loss of our new colleague", University spokesman Jonathan Gust said in a statement Tuesday.

"In the hours since receiving the news, it has been impossible for me to imagine our DE without someone so transcendent and committed to service", he said.

'The thoughts and prayers of the entire University community are with her family, friends and colleagues during this extremely hard time'.

According to Jennair Gerardot's LinkedIn account, the DE wife worked as a marketing manager for a South Carolina-based manufacturing company called Circor Instrumentation for five years, leaving the outlet in December.
