Friday is a significant day for the family of Molly Bish, as she would have turned 30 years old.
The family laid Molly to rest 10 years ago Friday and they remain as determined as ever to find the person who killed her.
"Love is stronger than evil," said Molly's sister, Heather Bish, as she read part of an open letter from her mother. "It is our turn. We will hunt for you. we will be a shadow you can't see. Molly deserves justice."
The letter, which was released Friday, addressed the person responsible for killing Molly, who went missing in June of 2000 while working as a lifeguard at Commins Pond in Warren.
"When Molly originally disappeared, we were taken into our house for two weeks," said Bish. "So my mother never got that typical chance that many parents of missing children get, to plead for their child."
Several years later, Molly's body was found in a wooded section of Palmer.
To this day, there has been no arrest in the case. The Bish family said the letter is part of their new "Somebody Knows Something" campaign, which has allowed Molly's picture to once again reach the entire region.
"The state police have already said there is one piece of the puzzle left, to put everything together," said Bish. "So I guess we're just trying to help them obtain that piece."
To get there, Bish said the family continues to receive tremendous support from people throughout New England, which has allowed them to move forward on many fronts.
"Our love for Molly has given us the strength and courage to go out and start a foundation, advocate for child safety, educate others, and try to bring legislation forward to protect others."
