After three years of searching, the remains of Molly Bish were identified June 9th, 2003.
Human bones and teeth were found only miles away from the pond where the teenager worked.
There were two types of idenitification that confirmed the remains were Molly's. Police say bones from a left arm and right shin were found in the wooded search area and subsequently tested for DNA. Dental records compared to a tooth found led to the identification of Molly.
It was the news that Molly's parents, John and Magi, had been dreading. Over the next few days, more discoveries were made including another rib and vertebrae, bringing to twenty the total number of bones found. Finally, on June 9th, investigators confirmed that the remains were those of Molly. The search for Molly Bish has ended, but for her family, the search for Molly's killer feels more urgent than ever.
Molly Bish was laid to rest on August 2, 2003, which would have been her 20th birthday.
