As I’m sure you’ve heard by now another teacher lost their life this past week at the hands of student. 24-year-old Colleen Ritzer of Danvers High School in Danvers, Massachusetts, was murdered allegedly by 14-year-old student Philip Chism. Ritzer had asked Chism to stay after school in order to prepare for a test. Chism is believed to have followed her into a bathroom where he struck her then slut her throat with a boxcutter. He then put her in a recycling bin and wheeled her out to the woods behind the school where he left her body partially covered in leaves.
What you may not know is that it appears that this wasn’t a crime of opportunity but premeditated murder. Chism had not only packed the boxcutter and also white gloves that day but also packed a change of clothes supposedly so he wouldn’t be caught wearing bloody clothes.
So far Chism is said to be cooperating with police but won’t tell them why he killed her. The Daily Mail is going with a theory that Chism had made romantic advances towards his victim which they say were spurned. Take that with a grain of salt because the Daily Mail is either spot on or dead wrong. They usually don’t have a much of an in-between.
In case there are other high school Romeos out there who do think they can score with their teacher stop right now. All those stories about hot female teachers who molest their students are the exception and not the rule. In reality you’re just some high school kid who has nothing to offer a woman with a career. Not only that it’s illegal.
Chism has been charged as an adult.
