'No one knows why'

Accused student was a newcomer to town, not well-known


Clarksville’s potential connection to Ritzer’s murder more than 1,100 miles away shocked residents. “Everyone I’ve talked to has been surprised,” said Joel Wallace, a Clarksville attorney and city councilor. “I haven’t talked to anyone who knew him, but anytime there’s news like this tied to Clarksville, it generally takes people by surprise.”

“Clarksville is a growing city, but has retained the small-town feel,” he said. “Anytime something like this happens, it’s a shock.”

Material from the Associated Press was used in this report.
