Slain teacher’s family sues town, school system, cleaners
LAWRENCE, Mass. — The family of a Massachusetts high school teacher who was raped and killed by a 14-year-old student is suing the town where she died, the school system and a cleaning company whose workers washed away potential evidence.
Ritzer’s family isn’t seeking personal financial compensation but instead wants answers to questions surrounding her death. The suit says the family is seeking compensation to enhance school safety programs.
Danvers school administrators didn’t immediately return a call and email seeking comment.
