    14 Year old reported missing yesterday was located. He is in custody and will be charged with murder of a 24 year old teacher Colleen Rizner. Rizner was found in the woods behind the high school.

    Police/DA cannot release the suspects name due to State law but did confirm the "Missing Teen" was connected to the homicide investigation and had been located.

    Two teachers in two days; I know I think more of the kids then NV happened in Sparks and now this. It sounds to me like a sexual attack of some kind. But they are not releasing any info on that. Nothing. One ? was where was she stabbed and LE responded they didn't say she was stabbed...etc.

    Yes and both stories won't release the names of the suspects.
    Not sure I like the blackout of the names because, we can't sleuth them.

    If you want the name, look at Danvers dot patch dot com or other local Boston media and search "Danvers missing teen"

    That is the same person charged with the crime, and his name and photo are all over the missing person-related articles. He recently moved to town from out of state.

    I, too, suspect he was attracted to her or some such and lost it when she rebuffed his advance.

    I have family in town there. Everyone is very shocked.

    If you look, this student's name is out there. He was names when he was missing, as soon as he was found they stopped naming him. Only thing I've found so far is that he recently relocated from Tennessee.

    Wait, the student was last seen at the movies at 6:30pm Tuesday?

    So he would have killed her then gone to the movies instead of going home?

    Well that sounds weird.

    A 14-year-old student is in custody and will be arraigned in juvenile court in Salem on a murder charge after a teacher's body was found in the woods near Danvers High School.

    ------------------

    The 14-year-old suspect will make an appearance in juvenile court. Juvenile court is closed to the public but the DA said his office will be looking very carefully at all the evidence and deciding whether or not to charge this teenager as an adult under Massachusetts Law.
    Go to the facebook page/link for WHDH-Breaking News. The cameras are on in ADULT Court right now where HE is being arraigned.

    Judge just called "Philip CHISM" in court.

    Question: if he is a juvenile but does in fact end up being tried as an adult, are we allowed to sleuth him then?

    This female attorney is trying really hard to make it look like he's not a threat.
    Putting her hand on him and everything. (He's a head taller than her.)
    She is also getting shot down at everything she tries to tell the judge.

    She gets shot down again wanting services to evaluate him.
    Judge denies it because the affidavit is not specific enough.

    LOL The female attorney just answered a question that the judge was asking the cops...
    If I was this kids family I'd be looking for a different attorney.

    So what was Blodgett talking about at the press conference about being unsure if they could try him as adult because of the law that changed September 1?

    Prior, ALL juvenile matters were private/sealed unless 17 or older and/or convicted of a crime with adult sentencing. 16 in Ma is a juvenile, 17 is a minor and anythign under 18 was sealed automatically from the public.

    Now, this is not the case. Regardless of age, if a person is charged as an adult, they are viewed as an adult in the court system/sentencing etc.

    In Ma, juveniles are not "convicted", they are found delinquent and the DYS (dept of Youth Services) takes custody of them until 17-violent crimes (or later depending on circumstances).

    Being charged and arraigned in court for the 14 year old, now makes him the same as if he was 25. If convicted, he would be sentenced to State Prison...they might keep him in DYS until 18, then he is immediately transferred to prison etc.
