BURRILLVILLE — Peter Berthelette heard his cellphone ring as he stood at a table inside Burrillville High's Senior Lounge last Wednesday. He had been conversing with baseball player Zach Lafleur and two classmates as they ate their lunches.
“I typically don't answer my cell in front of students, but when the call showed up as coming from Skee Carter, I did anyway,” Berthelette recalled. “I said, 'Hi, Skee!' and all I heard was a pause.
