Boyfriend Arrested in Murder of Delaware Preschool Teacher Cynthia Amalfitano

Stephen Heck, 66, has been arrested by New Castle County police in connection with the murder of his girlfriend, 63-year-old Cynthia Amalfitano, a preschool teacher from Wilmington.

Amalfitano was reported missing last month after she didn’t appear at her workplace. Although initially the subject of a search alert, her body was tragically discovered on September 26th near Carousel Park in Pike Creek, a short distance from her home. Heck now faces charges of first-degree murder. While the circumstances of Amalfitano’s death have not been revealed, police are actively seeking additional information.

The community is grappling with the loss, as Amalfitano was described as a bright presence at Concord Preschool and Childcare, where she worked for 24 years.
