“She was gentle, with a big smile,” said Mary Duffy, who has lived next door to Colleen Ritzer’s family in Andover for more than two decades. “It makes no sense.”

 MASSACHUSETTS – A 24-year-old Danvers High School teacher has been found dead, and a 14-year-old boy is facing a murder charge in the case, Essex County prosecutors said this morning.

Colleen Ritzer’s body was found in the woods behind the school, said Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett.

Philip D. Chism faces charges as an adult and will be arraigned this afternoon in Salem District Court, the court clerk’s office said.

Chism had been reported missing Tuesday after he did not return home from school. Ritzer was reported missing at about 11:20 p.m. Tuesday when she did not return home and did not answer her cellphone.

Police searched the school and found blood in a second-floor bathroom. Ritzer’s body was found later behind the school, Blodgett said in a news conference this morning at the high school.

[…]  He said authorities had no reason to believe there were any other suspects.In the morning news conference, he did not identify Chism, citing state law protecting the records of juvenile offenders.

He also released few further details of the investigation, declining to comment on whether the suspect knew Ritzer, when the suspect was linked to the teacher’s slaying, and how Ritzer died. No further details were released at the arraignment.

With his mother in the gallery, the tall, lanky boy with close-cropped hair, stood quietly during the proceeding, wearing a jail-issued white jumpsuit.

But police said in a report filed today in court that the charges came after an interview of Chism and a review of video surveillance footage recovered at the school.

The evidence indicated that Chism “assaulted and subsequently murdered Colleen Ritzer and disposed of her body near the high school grounds,” the report said.

“She was a very, very, respected, loved teacher. … It’s a terrible tragedy for the entire Danvers community,” Blodgett said.   (read more)

        Agreed. I saw that (other) comment when you posted it, and those are all good questions. With few details about the approximate time of death, and no mention of any videos from the school CCTV cameras (assuming there *were* any cameras), it’s difficult to “sniff out” the truth here. It DOES appear that something important is not being revealed. Perhaps there are additional suspects that the police are trying to avoid alerting, or some grisly details of the crime itself they are concealing?

      The lack of reporting about the boy’s social media presence (or lack there of) is a major smokin gun. If the young killer had no social media presence, they should say that. if he had a normal social media presence, they should have said that.

    Math teacher Colleen Ritzer found dead on Wednesday morning after she was reported missing when she didn’t come home from school.
    Philip Chism, 14, one of her students, charged with her murder today.
    Police who went in search of Miss Ritzer found school bathroom covered in blood.
    Teen was picked up by police walking along a highway at 12.30am after being last seen at a movie theater.

    A teenager who has been charged with murder after his math teacher was found slashed to death with a box cutter, disposed of her body then went to see a Woody Allen film.

    Philip Chism, 14, was seen on surveillance footage dragging a recycling bin with Colleen Ritzer’s body through the halls of Danvers High School in Massachusetts on Tuesday night then dumping her remains in the woods near campus, according to police sources.

    WCVB-TV today reports that after the gruesome killing, Chism walked to Hollywood Hits theaters in Danvers and watched Blue Jasmine, a movie about a middle-aged woman’s mental breakdown. Miss Ritzer’s phone was later found near the movie theater.

        I hadn’t known this bit of the story.- about him being from Tennessee. I do know Danvers. It’s a prosperous town, north of Boston and about 20 miles west of Gloucester. The black population is nil. There are two private prep schools there in addition to the high school.

        And this young woman reminds me of so many of the kids I used to know in the western suburbs of Boston. I wonder what school she went to – Massachusetts is full of teachers’ colleges; I went to one of them and it, too, was full of pretty, enthusiastic and energetic young women who thought teaching would be a good career where they could make a difference.

        As you can see in her Twitter feed, even she admitted she was too excited…did she even get two full years??

        https://twitter.com/msritzermath/

        The boy’s family is probably middle-class, if they lived in Danvers. And I’ll bet you anything he had been within the normal limits of ‘strange’ until adolescence hit and was followed by a move to a new, almost all-white town way up North where people are definitely different.

        Notice he didn’t need a gun – there must be liberal heads ‘sploding over the paucity of symbols to hang their bigotry on. I’ll also bet the family won’t let any BGI anywhere near their kid. I wonder if there are even any other black kids in his class? What a change from Baptist Tennessee to Catholic Massachusetts! I still remember the culture shock when I moved up there and I was a grown-up. It’s a real adjustment under the best of circumstances.

        Also noticed they mentioned Momma in court but no Dad. Where’s Dad?? Back in Tennessee?? Was this a d-i-v-o-r-c-e move?

        This is one tragedy where I think race is peripheral, though it may have been front & center in that child’s head.

          This sort of crap almost makes me wonder about re-thinking humanism. Esp. the “humanism” of the lefties.

          Consider this obamason. He obviously got used to following his natural impulses and that such a following had no consequences to him — a minor of a minority descent in a single vessel is a holy cow of the PC world, and, consequently of all of us, at least, to some extent. Until, all the sudden, he is charged as an adult for robbery and murder, at the age of 14. Is it really more humane — from any standpoint — to have rules taught to this obamason with rubber batons of prison wards with a (God forbid) possible fixation of the learnt material with a huge hypertrophied primary geschlechtsmerkmal of a giant guy named Bubba? As opposed to, you know, the way taught by Shlomo ben David, the king over the Jews in Jerusalem:

          He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
          (Prov. 13:24).

          The same consideration seems to be true (based on the information on CNN, it may very well be turn out differently) with regards to the tragic (that is: unnecessary and likely preventable) death of a 13-y.o. mr. Lopez, who pointed a device that shoots .177″ plastic pellets but looks very similar to a Kalshnikov AK-47 assault rifle shooting .30″ metal pieces towards a police officer — who in turn fired real bullets. Somebody failed to explain the kid to not point a gun-looking device towards police officers and to follow simple instructions like “freeze”, “put your gun down”, and so on.

          Ditto goes for TrayTray the lean abuser. JIMHO.

          Teaching certain kids with a cane is very inhumane. All mentions of such a barbaric brutality must be erased from the books and publicly available google searches. Maybe. Killing the children and putting them to prisons is a lot more humane. It must be. Because — so says the prog camarilla of our beloved PotUS.

    Lake Mary cops: We’re not charging George Zimmerman with stealing from his mother-in-law

    She accused him of stealing a king-sized bed, antique chair and leather furniture.

    By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel
    5:46 p.m. EDT, October 23, 2013

    Lake Mary police announced Wednesday that they are not going to charge George Zimmerman with stealing a king-sized bed, antique chair and several other pieces of furniture from his mother-in-law’s rental house where he lived for several months.

    Department spokesman Officer Zach Hudson characterized the matter as “a civil dispute”.

    Earlier, Hudson described it as a landlord-tenant dispute.

    Zimmerman’s mother-in-law, Machelle Dean, last month filed a police report, accusing Zimmerman of stealing items from the house where he had lived for several months.

    He was likely as hater of white people.

    If this teen had a significant social media presence where he expressed his hatred for whites (or a desire to GET JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON) I would expect the police would work with the media to HIDE this kid’s racist motivations.

He seemed quite comfortable stealing from a classroom, and concealing himself in the school and stalking her into the bathroom, as well as wielding a box cutter well enough to murder someone for this to have been the first incident of sociopathic behavior in his life.
