DANVERS - While police continue their investigation of the murder of a teacher, the Danvers community gathered to honor her.
Colleen Ritzer's body was found behind Danvers High School, about a half hour outside of Boston.
Prosecutors say 14 year old Philip Chism killed the 24-year-old teacher, but they have not said how or given a motive.
Last night, students held a candlelight vigil to remember their teacher.
They say she clearly loved her job and wanted them to succeed.
Chism moved into town just before the school year and was described by classmates as pleasant, but quiet.
He's being held without bail after being arraigned on a murder charge.
