When a 14 year old boy named Philip Chism goes missing in the middle of a school day, his mother thinks the worst and calls 911. Little does she know, that her son isn’t the only missing person from Danvers High School that day. A 24-year-old math teacher is missing also. She is Phillip’s teacher which raises some immediate questions, but after finally solving a mishap with the school’s 140-camera security system, police are able to come up with a theory as to what happened that day. Another big clue, of course, is the body in the woods.

Colleen E. Ritzer was a 24-year-old math teacher at Danvers High School. She had a warm smile and love of teaching. Some of her friends would later say that she was “born to do this job.” However, no one could have imaged the darkness that would shroud the school on that particular day, and when all is said and done we are all left with the nagging question of “why?”
