A tragic murder-suicide unfolded in Port St. Lucie, Florida, claiming the life of beloved middle school teacher Amanda Hicks, 26, who was reportedly stabbed to death by her fiancé. The man, whose identity has not yet been disclosed by authorities, subsequently took his own life with a firearm, according to WPTV reports.

The grim discovery was made early Saturday when police, responding to a request for a welfare check, found Hicks’ body next to her crying infant inside their locked apartment. The 10-month-old child, Alani, was unharmed and has since been placed with a family member. The couple had been living in the apartment complex for just three weeks prior to the tragic incident.

Although the police have yet to formally identify the victims, the staff at Dr. David Anderson Middle School, where Hicks was a reading teacher, confirmed that she was the “victim of a homicide.” Friends and colleagues have begun to pay tribute to Hicks, recalling her as a vibrant, positive individual, who was passionate about teaching and also nurturing a swimsuit modeling career.

However, those close to Hicks noted that she had become somewhat distant in recent months. Friend Raquel Magallon told The Post that Hicks had never mentioned her pregnancy or her relationship, even abruptly deleting her social media accounts. Neighbors had little interaction with the couple, but reported that the two seemed pleasant and generally upbeat.

This tragic event has left friends and colleagues puzzled, with many expressing their sorrow over the shocking turn of events. As the community struggles to come to terms with the tragic loss, they remember Hicks for her positivity and passion for teaching.

    Fiance? Thats like wait I have met people who have a Fiancé for 20 years. Imagine the hate he had to stab her to death, as Stabbing seems to be a very personal way to kill someone, very up close. Good that he killed himself and saved their child from having to have one dead parent and the other hopefully in prison for killing her. He did his child a favor of taking out the trash

    My heart goes out the the Mother of this woman and her Father, any siblings Taken so early in her life because? Because of Entitlement to do so. Who believes they can take someones else’s life through murder? Liberals of the RINO and DEMOCRATIC Communist mindset. Or criminals who are sick and entitled

    I don’t mind idiots killing themselves, as a matter of fact, I’d like to see more of it, but taking an innocent person with them is disgusting.
