Family of Molly Bish still searching for answers

The Bish family was at the Sturbridge Host Hotel Saturday

16 year-old Molly Bish disappeared from her lifeguard post at Comins Pond in Warren on June 27, 2000.

STURBRIDGE, Mass. (WWLP) – More than fourteen years later and still, no arrests have been made.

For the past fourteen years, the family of Molly Bish has been searching for answers, after their daughter was abducted and murdered in June 2000.

“It’s hard when Molly’s not sitting there at the table, or during a holiday.  It can be just we’re on a picnic, or we can be together, and she’s not there; that missing link,” said Magi Bish, Molly’s mother. “You miss her, you hear a song, it never really goes away.”

Molly vanished from her lifeguard post at Comins Pond in Warren. Three years later her body was found in the woods just a few miles away from home.

Molly’s father, John Bish, told 22News he holds on to the happy memories, and that’s what keeps him pushing forward one day at a time.

John said, “She was a very kind person, and she loved that job. She was silly; we had a lot of fun. We went fishing, bike riding.”

And the person responsible for Molly’s murder has still not been found. That’s why Saturday, the family hoped to get more answers.

The Bish family says more than 20 people came down to give them more information on their daughter’s disappearance.

Criminal Justice & Forensic Scientist Dr. Sarah Stein told 22News, “Every person who has come over today has said they have not come forward with this information before, so it’s been very promising.”

It’s why the Bish family says they’ll never stop searching.

Magi said, “That’s what this guy would love, for us to go away, forget about him and let him go live his life, do whatever he wants to do. But I assure you, he will harm somebody else.”

Not just to bring Molly justice, but to ensure no other family will suffer at the hands of her killer.
