    I think this is actually my fault, I suggested the initial topic change to moderators and I believe now that I was confusing the case with another school shooting (or it was misreported as such). At the time I was just trying to get the victim's name into the subject line.

    How horrible, I just do not understand all the teenage violence that keeps happening.This young woman was only 24 and a wonderful person as well as a great teacher. Prayers to her family and friends as well as her school family.Very sad.

    Such brutality at such a young age. IMO, not a good sign for his chances of rehabilitation.

    I have been reading a lot online about this and it makes me sick to think a 14 yr old would just go and murder his teacher at school.I saw a twitter account mention he was an honor student.Not sure how true this is though.It does make me wonder if Math was a hard subject for him and he was not going to get the A in her class.I wonder if he was from a family that had only high expectations of him.Maybe in the next few days we will learn more.I feel for Colleen's family ,friends, and students.Tragic

    Christian Snyder, a high school freshman here, never liked math much, until he had Colleen Ritzer as a teacher.

    “It was always a struggle,” Christian, 14, said Wednesday outside Danvers High School in this quiet suburb, about 20 miles north of Boston. “But she was always positive and happy, and she made me feel like I wanted to go to math class.”

    This is just so sad and senseless.

    It sounds as if she was/would have been one of those rare teachers that make a big impact on their students' lives. Math was often a struggle for me, too, and I would have really appreciated the kind of teacher it sounds like she was.

    Also this hits close to home because there are many teachers in my family, including my mother (retired).

    I hope we find out some inkling of why this kid did this. Stabbing/slashing is an up-close, personal crime.
    Be kind, for everyone is fighting a great battle.

    Anyway, there was another case I was reading about in Massachusetts where a teenage boy killed his girlfriend, and they released security camera footage of her leaving the mall where she worked. So it seems like Massachusetts is pretty lenient when it comes to footage being released. It seems likely that we will see parts of the footage eventually.

    I just woke up to see the news report on CNN. I am stunned.

    It does appear as though no firearm was used as it was stated on CNN that she had been "beaten and assaulted".

    I am sorry if this link has been posted, i am half asleep still, and in shock.

    No matter what we know (or, rather, think we know) the thread title should include the word "allegedly."

    Philip Chism: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    I'm not sure how reliable this heavy.com website is but they have a timeline of the night of the murder and what looks like a copy of the Statement of Facts and the criminal complaint.

    I hope they check her computer to see if he was stalking her etc....I am sure they will, and check his too?

    I am surprised they connected him to the murder so fast, maybe he said something?

    This is so heartbreaking. Prayers for family and may she RIP.

    Let me find you some links that tell more...

    1. He was on CCTV in the school following her into the restroom and then dragging a recycling bin out of the restroom.

    2. Her cellphone was recovered in the vicinity of his last known location before HE was reported missing the day of the crime.

    3. He made self-incriminating statements.

    Here are some links that contain various bits and parts of the above.
