Students March to Honor Fallen Teacher

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- As officers search for the robbers linked to a Las Vegas teacher's death, Eldorado High School students honored Timothy VanDerbosch before classes started Monday morning.

VanDerbosch was killed after he was beaten, robbed and then hit by a passing car.

And at 6 a.m., students walked the same path Mr. VanDerbosch took every day to get to school.

Students met at Washington and Nellis, the scene of the crime, and walked along Washington to their school.

So far, no arrests have been made in VanDerbosch's death. Several people were robbed and beaten early Wednesday morning. Police say the suspects were robbing their victims at random.

VanDerbosch was beaten so badly, he was struck by a car while lying on the street. He died at University Medical Center.

Last week, police released pictures of a person of interest in the case. The man was seen on an ATM camera using VanDerbosch's debit card. He was later identified and said he found the card and tried to use it.

However, police have eliminated him as a suspect in VanDerbosch's death.
