Now a number of media organizations are launching a legal challenge to overturn Salem District Court Judge Michael Lauranzano’s order hiding details of a potentially explosive search warrant, which could finally shed some light on Chism’s motive.

Investigators searched Chism’s family home in Danvers – a couple of miles away from the murder scene – but their findings have been kept secret.

The reasons why the warrant was requested in the first place have also been banned, along with the actual motion from the Essex County District Attorney’s office requesting the court order.

Certain other details of the case have also been sealed - including an affidavit outlining the facts of the investigation - all of which would normally be available to the public, particularly as Chism has been charged as an adult.

When the District Attorney’s office explained the decision it claimed one of the reasons was to save 24-year-old Ritzer’s distraught family from even more upset.

It issued a statement saying: 'We requested the impoundment because the search warrant affidavit and the motion to impound the affidavit contain sensitive information that may be prejudicial to the defendant and jeopardize his right to a fair trial; witness names who have yet to appear before the Grand Jury and information that may contribute to the increased psychological and emotional distress of the victim’s family.'

I have a gruesome question...if he killed her in the bathroom with the box cutter then put her body in a recycle bin....wouldn't there have been a huge amout of blood not only in the bathroom but a trail of it to the bin?

Would probably expose several politically-connected individuals as being involved in something that they don't want exposed...

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Depends how careful he was. Cut her throat and let her bleed out over the toilet bowl, there would be minimal blood to clean up and most of it would be dealt with with a few bits of tissue and a flush.

It seems - from the story - that the bin was located in the bathroom.

Sorry - it is a horrific thing, but sometimes you have to think how to do it most effectively.

It really doesn't matter who it is.  Just the fact that the legal-system is as corrupt as the political-system and has been co-opted by truly evil people who do truly evil things that they don't want exposed to the light of day.

Thanks I read that as the bin was in the woods where they found the body. Thanks that answers my question.

My pleasure (well - sort of)

A recycling bin in the woods makes no sense. One in the bathroom, used to transport a leaking body, does.

Now - I need go have a serious shower for even thinking about this.

I know, I am glad somebody took the time to answer my question.
