Teen From Tennessee Charged With Teacher Murder In Massachusetts
(Danvers, MA) A teenager, originally from Clarksville, Tennessee, has been charged with killing a Danvers, Massachusetts high school teacher
Jonathan Blodgett, Essex County District Attorney, said 24-year-old Colleen Ritzer, a math teacher, was found dead in the woods behind the school early Wednesday morning.
Blodgett said it was, “apparent she was a homicide victim.”
Tuesday night, a 14-year-old student was reported missing.
Investigators say the teen had recently moved to the area from Tennessee.
Several hours after the missing persons report was filed, Ritzer, a math teacher was reported missing.
Blood was found inside a bathroom on the school’s second floor.
An hour after the blood was found, the 14-year-old was found walking on a main road in a nearby town.
Ritzer’s body was eventually found in some woods behind the school.
Blodget told WBZ-TV, “We have no reason to believe any other suspects are involved.”
