ARVADA, CO – A middle school teacher killed herself as police approached her home to question her about an alleged sexual relationship she was having with a student.

Police began investigating 47-year-old Gretchen Krohnfeldt after a co-worker at Drake Middle School reported seeing inappropriate behavior between Krohnfeldt and a male student.

An investigation by Arvada police and the sheriff’s office revealed the relationship allegedly began when the boy, who is now in high school, attended the middle school where Krohnfeldt taught Language Arts.

The pair reportedly met at Krohnfeldt’s home to have sex on multiple occasions. In response to the investigation, she was placed on administrative leave Monday night.

When police approached Krohnfeldt’s home on Tuesday to question her, the mother of three killed herself. Her cause of death has not been released at this time.

A statement released by Drake Middle School read:

“Our hearts go out to her family at this painful time, and I know many will feel this loss deeply. We are not sure what type of support would help the family right now, but if they convey any needs we will share that information as well.”

From the comments we get on stories like this over the years, I know some people find it hard to believe that an underage male can be a victim when they are banging a hot teacher. But a psychologist chimed in to remind people that teacher-student relationships can have a long-lasting impact on kinds, no matter of their gender.

“People don’t realize that the male victims, the boys are just as negatively affected as the girls, the female victims, so they have the same kind of mental health issues in life: post-traumatic stress, eating disorders, problems with their own relationships,” said Max Wachtel.

He went on to add that while they may not think of themselves as a victim at the time of the relationship, possibly thinking they are in love, but that they are being taken advantage of and it’s not until later in life that issues from a teacher-student relationship can manifest themselves.
