INDIO — Police have arrested a 42-year-old Indio man in connection with the death of Jill Thomas Grant, a math teacher at Palm Desert High School, whose body was found in a dirt lot Monday morning at Golf Center Parkway and Avenue 42.

Michael John Franco, who was described as Grant’s “live-in boyfriend,” was arrested at 6:38 a.m. Tuesday in the 47-200 block of Heliotrope Drive in Palm Desert, Indio police spoksman Ben Guitron said.

News of Grant’s death had already spread across Twitter by the time the Riverside County coroner’s office released her name Tuesday evening.

“She was a beloved teacher and beloved by all,” said Sherry Johnstone, assistant superintendent at Desert Sands Unified School District.

“The whole situation is deeply tragic.”
