The last testimony could be some of the most damning in the murder trial of Phillip Chism. It is the shocking Danvers High School surveillance video that is the centerpiece of the state's case against the 16-year-old.
And this forensic psychologist believes it proves Chism was perfectly sane on the day he attacked and killed math teacher Colleen Ritzer and that there are telltale signs that Chism took steps to try and get away with it.
And it begins with video of Chism following Ritzer into the bathroom where she was attacked after school. Particularly, one shot where Chism puts on a pair of gloves.
Video later showed Chism wearing a mask when he emerged from the bathroom with a recycling barrel to move Ritzer’s body to the woods outside the school but once outside, his mask is down.
Ritzer was stabbed sixteen times, strangled, and had her throat slashed.
All the witnesses have been heard. All the witnesses have been heard. All that’s left now is for closing statements, for the Chism jury to start deliberating and all that is likely to begin Friday.
When the verdict comes down in this case, we’ll alert you using the FOX25 News app.
