SALEM, Mass. (AP) - Court documents show a popular Massachusetts teacher who police say was killed by one of her students was found in the woods with her throat slit and a note that read, "I hate you all."

The documents released Friday after requests by The Associated Press and other media organizations say 14-year-old Philip Chism brought a box cutter, mask, gloves and multiple changes of clothing to school the day 24-year-old Colleen Ritzer was killed.

According to the documents, surveillance video shows Chism putting on gloves and with a hood over his head as he followed Ritzer into a Danvers High School bathroom.

She was reported missing when she never returned home from school. Her body was found in the woods and Chism was found walking along a highway overnight.

He has been charged with murder, aggravated rape and armed robbery. His attorney had no comment.
