On October 22, 2013, Philip Chism, a math instructor at Danvers High School, killed and sexually assaulted Colleen Ritzer.
Ritzer taught mathematics. She inspired all of her students to ask for her help even after school hours, which won her their admiration.
Colleen spent her entire life putting her family and her teaching career first. Her life’s passion and dream was to educate those around her.
At three o’clock she went to the bathroom, and eventually Ritzer went with her. Chism was wearing a hood over his face.
After Ritzer used the restroom, Philip Chism donned gloves, pulled a razor-sharp box cutter from his pocket, slit her throat 16 times, and proceeded to rape her while strangling her.
Even though the attack was likely to be noticed, the student believed someone was getting ready inside.
He staged her body in a sexually inappropriate way, spread her legs out under the pile of leaves, pulled up her shirt, and stuck a three-fork tree branch into her.
