Judge refuses to unseal documents in Danvers case

A Salem District Court judge refused to unseal a search warrant affidavit filed in the investigation of the killing of Danvers High School teacher Colleen Ritzer, saying in a decision made public Friday that releasing details of the case could affect witnesses’ grand jury testimony and would be cruel to the victim’s family.

Ritzer was killed inside Danvers High School, allegedly by Philip Chism, a 14-year-old sophomore who was one of Ritzer’s math students.
