The Massachusetts town of Danvers is mourning the death of 24-year-old math teacher Colleen Ritzer, whose body was found in the woods near her school.
Philip Chism, a 14-year-old Danvers High School student, has been arrested and charged with her murder, according to reports. He was reported missing on Tuesday — just one hour after Ritzer was reported missing — and found wandering in the nearby town of Topsfield, Mass., early this morning.
