  • Love-triangle ends in murder-suicide when wife ambushes romantic rival cops

Based on what Radnor Township detectives learned so far, 47-year-old Jennair Gerardot, a Wilmington resident, discovered that her husband, only identified as Mark, was having an affair with Meredith Sullivan Chapman, a University of DE graduate and VP at the Villanova University.

Radnor Township police called it a murder-suicide and said it stemmed from a love affair between 33-year-old Meredith Chapman and Mark Gerardot.

Recently discovered evidence shows that on the day of Chapman's murder, Jennair rode a train from DE to her Radnor Township house and donning a disguise.

While authorities are still piecing together the puzzle, it is believed that Gerardot suspected Chapman was having an affair with her husband, Mark Gerardot.

Chapman was a former communications director at the University of DE and one-time state Senate candidate who had recently accepted a job at Villanova University.

She wrote: 'Couldn't be more excited to be Villanova University's new Assistant Vice President for Marketing and Creative Services! Police also noted that it appears Jennair Gerardot brought a bag containing a wig and clothing with her. Jennair Gerardot didn't drive to Chapman's home and it wasn't immediately clear how she got there, police said. He told them, "My wife may be inside", police said. "There were emails and text messages indicating what she planned to do, and the detectives are still sorting that out", Colarulo said.

When police arrived, Mark Gerardot was outside the house saying, "My wife may be inside".

One of the last people to see Chapman alive was reportedly a neighbor, who told The Philadelphia Inquirer that she saw Chapman pull into her driveway and then heard an unnerving sound that didn't make sense in their quiet community. He went to Chapman's home only to discover both her body and that of his wife.

Chapman, a Republican, also unsuccessfully ran for senatorial office in 2016, against Democratic incumbent Dave Sokola for the 8th District Senate seat. She was new to the Rosemont neighborhood.

Luke Chapman and Meredith Chapman's family also issued a joint statement Wednesday asking for privacy as they mourn. "Our hearts are broken by the devastating loss of our new colleague". Meredith and Luke Chapman are close friends. Mark Gerardot had dinner plans with Chapman and when she didn't show up he went to the house to check on her, Colarulo added.

'The thoughts and prayers of the entire University community are with her family, friends and colleagues during this extremely hard time'. "I simply can't imagine what he is going through".

'Just a week on the job and I'm already feeling the love from #NovaNation!

But it also shocked the marketing, political and higher education worlds in the DE area, industries in which the Chapmans and Gerardots both found some prominence.

According to Jennair Gerardot's LinkedIn account, the DE wife worked as a marketing manager for a South Carolina-based manufacturing company called Circor Instrumentation for five years, leaving the outlet in December.
