EAST CENTRAL -- An autopsy is scheduled today to determine the cause of death for 23-year-old Melinda Villegas, according to a spokesman for the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office. The family of the first-year mathematics teacher from East Central High School ordered the autopsy after Villegas’ death Oct. 10, said East Central Independent School District Superintendent Gary Patterson.

Just after 7 a.m. yesterday, Villegas was with a group of teachers in the district’s teaching center when she suddenly collapsed, Patterson said. Some colleagues rendered aid, as others rushed to call 911 and the school nurse. The nurse tended to Villegas until an ambulance arrived to transport her to Mission Trail Baptist Hospital in San Antonio, where Patterson said she died at approximately 8:15 a.m.

The superintendent said grief counseling is available to students and faculty. Substitute teachers are covering Villegas’ classes for the time being.
