Sheriff’s office makes reverse phone calls in hopes of catching a killer


June 25, 2013

Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office sent out almost 4,000 reverse phone calls to residents and businesses in an effort to locate video that may help them solve the murder of Molly Conley, the 15-year-old girl who was shot in a drive-by shooting on June 1.

Conley was walking along South Lake Stevens Rd. with friends when she was hit by a bullet in the neck.

Of the nearly 4,000 calls made 1,451 answered; 1,651 went to voice mail; 897 were no answer or disconnected.

The calls were made using SNOPAC Communications and stated the following:

“ This is an urgent message from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit as well as from the Lake Stevens Police Department are currently investigating several shootings which occurred in and around Lake Stevens during the late evening hours of June 1, 2013 and the early morning hours of June 2, 2013. This includes the Molly Conley murder investigation.”

The recording also let residents know that detectives are seeking anyone who may have video of vehicles driving in the area during the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. the night that Conley was killed.

They stated that they are specifically looking for information about any black passenger vehicles that may now have front, passenger side damage.

If you have video, any information about such a vehicle, or any other information about the Molly Conley murder, please call the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 425 388-3845.
