Carmen Garcia, 65, was found shot dead at her Temple City home on Easter Sunday. Friends of Garcia, who retired in 2011 after teaching at Alhambra's Independence and Century high schools, remember her as "an excellent teacher," Pasadena Star-News reports. Many of the teachers and staff at Century High School took the day off on Monday.

"Everybody's just in shock and devastated that this would happen to her," Debbie Rea, Century school registrar, told the Star-News. 

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is looking for clues and suspects, and results of an autopsy on Tuesday are not being revealed due to the investigation, a Los Angeles County Coroner spokesman told the Star-News.
