The story of a relationship between Baldwin-Whitehall school board member Beverly Coon and Bethel Park Superintendent Ronald Grimm is playing out like "Fatal Attraction," a tale of illicit love, stalking, attempted murder and the revenge of a woman scorned.
Police said they believed Ms. Coon had acted out of revenge after Dr. Grimm
tried to break off their two-year relationship a week and a half earlier.
Reports of stalking came from residents of Dr. Grimm's apartment complex and from Mrs. Grimm
, of Mt. Lebanon, who told police that a woman matching the description of Ms. Coon contacted her recently.
The woman told Mrs. Grimm
that if she
house, "it was all right."Police suspect that this was an attempt by Ms. Coon to keep track of Dr. Grimm
, who was interviewed at the Mercy Hospital
burn unit, told police that Ms. Coon often would call him, leave notes at his apartment and was stalking him.
...Bethel Park school officials also were tight-lipped, saying only that Dr. Grimm, 60, an educator who had been superintendent of Woodland Hills and Steel Valley schools, was off the job, recovering from burns.
