A Massachusetts woman is hoping the killer who murdered her sister will finally be tracked down.
“I think we’re very, very close,” said Heather Bish, sister of Molly, who vanished from Comins Pond in Warren back in June 2000 where she was a lifeguard. “We’re probably closer than we’ve ever been.”
Molly Bish's remains were found in the woods in Palmer three years later. Who the killer is has always been a mystery.
“For us it’s the same as it was 17 years ago,” said Heather Bish. “We miss her as much, we want to know what happened, we want justice for her.”
Stemming from a 2014 campaign for tips, four different people have come forward identifying a possible person of interest in the case.
That man resembles a mysterious stranger seen in a white car at Comins Pond by Molly’s mom the day before the abduction.
He was also spotted at the pond the day of the disappearance.
The tipsters say the car may have been buried at an old campground in West Brookfield.
Investigators will now use ground penetrating radar to look for it this Thursday.
“We have very compelling circumstantial evidence against him at this point,” said private investigator, Sarah Stein. “So we’re hoping to get a piece of physical evidence.”
Investigators are hoping the car, believed to be a 1986 Buick LeSabre, will not only be found, but that it will contain evidence like DNA or Molly’s clothes.
“My hope is that we’re able to find this car and it will be able to point us to the person who did this to Molly,” said Heather Bish. “And what happened to her that day.”
The person of interest is still alive and living in Massachusetts. He has been interviewed by the private investigator.
The current owners of the former campground that will be searched this week have no connection to the crime and have allowed the Bish family and investigators to have access to the property to dig.
The person of interest has never been publicly named by police.
