A teenager charged with the savage killing of a popular Massachusetts math teacher left a note near her body reading “I hate you all,” according to court records released today.
Phillip Chism, 14, allegedly scrawled the note and left it next to the body of Colleen Ritzer, 24, according to a search warrant affidavit presented in court today. The body was found in a wooded area near Danvers High School on Oct. 23.
The search warrant describes a particularly gruesome and vicious scene. It claimed that Ritzer’s body was “sexually staged,” and that Ritzer was naked from the waist down with her bra pulled below her waist. Her remains were sexually assaulted with a branch, the record states.
Next to Ritzer’s body was a folded note stating “I hate you all,” the affidavit states.
Also found were blood-soaked gloves, which Chism was observed on a school security video camera donning before he followed Ritzer into a second-floor bathroom at Danvers High School at 2:55 p.m., Oct. 22, according to the document.
