Student-Teacher Love Triangle Turns Deadly

One student stabbed another over a predator teacher.

A 48-year-old math teacher in Arizona slept with not one but TWO of her students.

When Student #1, Sixto Balbuena, caught her in the act with Student #2, Samuel Valdivia, he stabbed him. Now Sixto is in jail, and Samuel is dead.

Of course, Tamara Hofmann is not the first female teacher to prey upon a student. Check out other predator teachers:

Why do these female teachers continue to prey upon and sleep with our sons? Not only is this downright abuse, it can even be deadly.

How are moms supposed to know if their kids are being victimized by a teacher, coach, or other trusted adult? Samantha Wilson, a child and safety expert, says to be on the lookout for the following warning signs:

• A sharp, sudden change in behavior
• Loss of interest in family or friends
• Withdrawal from hobbies or extracurricular activities

However, Wilson says female pedophiles are rare, and they often believe they're "in love" with the younger student. "It is still abuse in every way, shape, and form; but the boys don't normally act like they're being victimized," she says. It might just outwardly appear as if the boy has an innocent crush -- but Wilson says moms should follow their instincts. "If something doesn't feel right, ask questions," she says. "You know your kid better than anyone. Moms have to trust themselves."

Our thoughts go out to Samuel's family in this difficult time.

Do you think Tamara should be punished for Samuel's death, too?
