A 24-year-old Danvers High School teacher has been found dead, and a 14-year-old boy is being held without bail on a charge of murdering her.
Math teacher Colleen Ritzers body was found in the woods behind the school, said Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett.
Philip D. Chism was ordered held without bail at his arraignment this afternoon in Salem District Court. Judge Matthew Nestor approved funds for a mental competency evaluation. Chism is to be tried as an adult; a probable cause hearing was slated for Nov. 22.
Chism had been reported missing Tuesday after he did not return home from school. Ritzer was reported missing at about 11:20 p.m. Tuesday when she did not return home and did not answer her cellphone.
Police searched the school and found blood in a second-floor bathroom. Ritzers body was found later behind the school, Blodgett said in a news conference this morning at the high school.

What is it with these shooting lately? Some by accident (at least allegedly), and some intentional. Last week the Middle School shooting somewhere in the Mountain states I think.
Society is breaking down fast.
Wait...I am very confused.....this must be the wrong picture of the killer they put in the story...
It supposed to be a white male with conservative tea party parents...
Not a SOB... (son of Obama)
Bad guys always go where guns are banned. When is the last time you heard of a mass shooting at a police station or a gun range?
shooting? where does it say she was shot? i couldn’t find it.
According to other news sites this was a stabbing. Point remains the same, but at least the gungrabbers can’t seize on this one.
“Very definitely Obamas son. “
Ears aren’t big enough
“What is it with these shooting lately? “
How do you know this case is a shooting?
I think I read earlier that the weapon was a knife.
I heard on the radio a few minutes ago that it’s believed she was stabbed to death.
Yes, early accounts said that she was stabbed to death, hence the blood at the scene.
Hate-crime charges should be added, but I’m not holding my breath.
And I read elsewhere it was a stabbing, no gun involved.
Probably not unlike the one that murdered the Sparks, Nevada school teacher just the other day.
Their culture is broken and dangerous.
No Press Gaggle yet with 0bama declaring that if he had a son, he would look like the murderer.
ABC news has a video. Doesn’t look quite so “Trayvon”.
What the hell is wrong these days.
If I hear this was anything other than a kid getting back at a teacher that pissed him off, and I will puke.
