Another Teacher Slain

Thursday update:  It seems he used a box cutter.  Also:  Went to screening of movie afterward.  Oddly, Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmime."

UpdateStudent IDed--he is 14.   The usual:  "soft-spoken," nice.  Will be charged as adult.

Earlier:  So we had the middle school teacher gunned down by kid, age 12, in Nevada and now, in Mass., a young math teacher slain and body just found in the woods near school, with a student in custody.  Her Twitter feed here and excitement about what she teaches.  "Find something good in every day."  And:  "Go Sox!"
The body of the teacher, identified as Colleen Ritzer, 24, was found just after midnight in the woods near Danvers High School, about a half-hour outside Boston. Blood was found in a second-floor bathroom at the school, authorities said. Authorities said their murder investigation was connected to their search for a missing 14-year-old boy the day before, but they did not explicitly say that he was the juvenile charged in the killing.
They said the 14-year-old charged with murder would be arraigned later Wednesday. They did not discuss a motive, nor how the teacher was killed.
