The suburban Boston town of Danvers, Massachusetts, shut down all seven of its schools Wednesday after a teacher’s body was found in woods behind the high school.
Authorities found Colleen Ritzer’s body behind Danvers High School after she was reported missing Tuesday, according to the Essex County District Attorney’s office. Searchers found blood in a second-floor bathroom, according to the prosector’s office.
A 14-year-old boy is in custody, authorities said.
Blodgett did not say whether the boy is a student at the school and said he could not release the boy’s name or his connection to Ritzer because he is a juvenile.
