Reward offered for info in Lake Stevens drive-by shooting
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to charges in the slaying of 15-year-old Molly Conley in Lake Stevens on June 1.
Citizens can go to any Wells Fargo Bank and donate money to the Molly Conley Reward Fund, which was set up by the American Legion, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
Molly Conley, of Seattle, a straight-A freshman at Bishop Blanchet High School, was killed in an apparent drive-by shooting as she and several classmates walked along a road in Lake Stevens.
Conley was spending the night at a friend’s house to celebrate her 15th birthday. Detectives believe she and a group of friends were walking to the lake when a shooter in a passing vehicle on South Lake Stevens Road opened fire.
Chief Kevin Prentiss, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said detectives have been reviewing tips received on the investigation over the past week and continue to review and evaluate the information gathered during the early stages of the investigation. This includes witness statements, physical evidence, and canvassing of the neighborhood where the shooting occurred, he said.
However, he said, no suspects have been identified.
Currently, the reward fund is at $2,910 for anyone who calls in a tip to the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-222-TIPS with information leading to an arrest and charges in Conley’s case. Information may also be relayed to the sheriff’s office tip line at 425-388-3845.
