Private Investigator Gets New Leads in 15-Year Old Massachusetts Cold Case

Sixteen-year old Molly Anne Bish went missing from her job as a rural lifeguard in Warren, Massachusetts in June 2000. Despite the largest and most expensive search ever held for a missing person in Massachusetts, the police did not find her remains until May 2003.

Molly was wearing a blue bathing suit when she disappeared, and a hunter noticed such an item in the woods five miles from her house. An intense search of the area led to Molly’s remains.

Police and private investigators have been working tirelessly to find her murderer since Molly’s disappearance. However, despite high-profile suspects, the case remains unsolved as of June 21, 2015.

In particular, PI Sara Stein has been working with the family for thirteen years to try and find the killer. Molly’s mother was the last person to see her alive and had seen a suspicious man in a white sedan of the parking lot of the beach Molly worked at the day before she went missing. Stein and the police have made intensive efforts to find the vehicle and identify the owner of the 1986 Buick Lesabre that raised the suspicions of Molly’s mother.

Western Mass News ran a feature about renewed efforts to find Molly’s killer in June 2015. Stein told the magazine that leads have come pouring in, and she claimed that a witness came forward and identified the owner of the vehicle. While this person of interest remains unnamed, Stein claimed that he is known as a “very violent individual.”

The Worcester County DA’s Office ordered a new round of DNA testing on key evidence, and the Bish family and Stein are optimistic that this renewed effort will help bring Molly’s killer to justice.
