Math Teacher Killed, Laid to Rest

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- A Massachusetts math teacher was buried today after dying at the hands of one of her students.

Hundreds turned out for the funeral for Colleen Ritzer.

Many of them wearing pink ribbons, Ritzer's favorite color.

Police say she was murdered in a women's bathroom at Danvers High School last Tuesday.

Student Phillip Chism killed her with a box cutter and then left her body behind the high school.

Her family has set up a scholarship in her memory to help high school grads pursue a teaching career.
