Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.).

  1. The first article startes that his attorney only has 2 options, self defense or insanity defense but really the attorney only has the inanity defense because what the first article doesn’t state like the others do is that he followed her into the bathroom.

  2. I look forward to finding out what makes this kid tick. What was the motive? Was she sexually assaulted? He followed her into the girl’s bathroom. What sort of reception did he think he would get?

  3. What’s scary is that Danvers is my hometown. Although I didn’t go to Danvers High, Chism hid Colleen’s body in the woods that was on one of my dad’s running routes.

  4. I am surprised you don’t have updates, including about his trial and sentencing. Or is it there and I missed it?
