WARREN — There will soon be a doctor in the Bish family.

In a couple of years, Heather Bish hopes to earn a doctorate from the law and policy program at Northeastern University.

Heather's focus, she said last weekend, will be on how crimes affect what she called "secondary victims," such as friends, family and members of the community, as well as how law enforcement personnel treat victims.

It is, unfortunately, a subject of which Heather and the rest of her family have firsthand knowledge. It has been nine years since 16-year-old Molly vanished from her lifeguard post at Comins Pond in Warren, and six years since her bathing suit and 26 of her bones were found on Whiskey Hill in Palmer. The West Warren family has endured the investigation and all of its twists and turns, from the news of Molly being found to the possible suspects named in media reports.
