Teenager Accused of Murder and Rape Utters Chilling Words in Defense of His Reprehensible Actions
Last year, a Massachusetts teenager named Philip Chism was accused of raping and murdering his teacher, Colleen Ritzer, after being asked to stay after school to study.
Chism was just 14-years-old at the time and a freshman in high school. His murdered teacher was an agonizingly young 24.
Ritzer’s body was found in the woods, partially covered by leaves, after being torn open with a box cutter. A letter was placed next to her lifeless form.
It read “I hate you all.”
Now, after months of prepping, the trial of Philip Chism is finally getting underway. He is being tried as an adult.
Chism confessed to area police, but Judge David Lowy has ruled that confession inadmissible on the grounds that he did not fully understand his constitutional rights at the time.
Still, according to a transcript of the confession released by Daily Mail,Chism uttered some chilling words, claiming that he attacked her after the teacher “insulted” him:
“After she insulted me, that’s when I became the teacher,” he said.
