Simply facilitate vaccinating those kinds of populations.

There's a couple of things to check out the norman rockwell's museum which is part of americana based on the illustrated magazines that he did a lot of work for and stockbridge massachusetts. Yeah that is correct. I've been there. It's it's a fun museum. If if you at all familiar with rockwell's work or it's a fun place to go yes near there. There's chester word. Which is the home of sculptor. Daniel chester french. And he's known for the statue of abraham lincoln and washington d. c. and also the minute man statue concord which references the revolutionary war. I know you ask for lodgings. And i would say that pittsfield is the best place to stay and i think that one or two days in the berkshires a suffices and pittsfield more central. And it's going to have some budget options. Because the brewers can be pretty pricey depending where he got and near pittsfield one of the things that is really great about massachusetts is that there's a lot of famous authors that were from here and we have a to for with the mount which is home. It's a gilded age cottage and she's a famous author the first woman to receive a pulitzer for age of innocence. So for those people that are involved in hiking. The appalachian trail goes through here.

The trustees of reservation that saw the oldest land conservation organization that started in nineteen ninety-one and there's one hundred twenty properties and also mass audubon has fifty-seven properties. And what's interesting about those are. The trails are just really beautiful and scenic. I mean there's also the state forest ten percent of massachusetts land our state for us so it's actually pretty high considering that massachusetts is the seventh smallest state. And when you've done your hiking you can relax. There's people that come from all around to go to the spas such as crepaldi lou and current wall and those are where cranwell is in lenox in kapalua is in stockbridge and these are very close to the museums that are in the southern berkshires. That i mentioned the norman rockwell and also tested excellent. Anything else we want to do in the berkshires area. Yeah actually. I'm just moving north getting started. Okay yeah yeah. Yeah and believe me. The one taking a look at things to do. Mostly i was just choosing things that were interesting to people from other parts of the country..

I might add who has come to talk to us about the neighboring state of massachusetts henry. Welcome to the show. Yes thank you. And i should ask first of all what your connection with massachusetts other than it's right over there. Yeah so. I was born there. And i've been traveling. The state mine tireless life excellent. And why should someone go to massachusetts while it actually. It represents america. We've had people that have come to massachusetts over four hundred years ago and they've gone to all corners and there's been tremendous turnover so you know where to look you're gonna see all sorts of different movements ideas institutions museums and also. The nature is stunning to excellent. And we should point out there where people in massachusetts when those other people came to put people in massachusetts for some time. now yes what. Are you going to recommend for us. The reason i said at that way is because for the more recent people. You can actually see that you can see things that were constructive things in the landscape. My idea was that there's different regions. And there's quite a number of differences thursday the landscape and also what's available there as well so is going to go from western the berkshires going east to the cape and islands. And i guess. I should say what are we not gonna talk about today. Well we're not gonna talk about boston. Which is you hate boston. is that right.

I'm going to talk about all the wonderful things that are off the beaten trail and if you're interested information boston we do have two episodes in boston. One of them recently.

"But but i'd say also you know if we include the people that have had infection within at least the last three months they could count toward that total Part of the challenge is that we don't know how long immunity from natural infection lasts There's clearly evidence that it it gradually subsides or wayne's and some people especially if they've had milder illness And and that there's a very small risk of reinfection after some period of time but probably most people will have longer lasting immunity from their initial episode. And we'll be protected for a year or more This is based on a number of different Antibody studies serologic studies. So so we need to reach that level in order to have you know. Basically a better chance of having a transmission. Stop stopping our communities so martha before we before we go. I want to turn the last question to you just this afternoon. A little bit. Before the show attorney general maura healey was tweeting. Some warnings about vaccinations scams in part one of the tweets said quote. If you're asks for your personal info or payment to put your name on a list to get the vaccine or to be in a vaccine trial that is a scam. Massachusetts residents will not pay out of pocket for the vaccine and the free flow of clear information. And how people put one in front of the other in this. Vaccination process seems so important any reactions to that in any sources of information that our listeners can rely on. Well i am very worried about people. Giving up personal information including financial information to scammers in the hopes of getting the vaccine. I think there's a growing excitement and interest in getting these shots. Mass dot gov the state site has a good faq with information that tells you when you might be available and it doesn't yet have information about how you'll be notified so people just need to sit tight and wait for that. We will keep updating our vaccine faq's and reporting on each stage so that people know who will be eligible then in short if you don't meet some pretty strict criteria you're going to have to wait a couple of months at least all right. Well i really appreciate both of you. And i hope we're getting a chance to do this conversation again. That was wbz. Report martha bebinger and dr david hammer professor of infectious diseases medicine at the boston. University school of medicine also a professor at the boston university school of public health. Thanks so much to both of you. Really great information to give our listeners. There thank you. Take your youtube and happy new year..

"The grace period is overturned. Now that's probably unlikely. And it's also worth remembering that biden leads by about forty eight thousand votes in pennsylvania. Compare that to just several hundred during the florida recount in two thousand so it's unlikely that pennsylvania could change and also even pennsylvania were to change. It wouldn't change the overall outcome of the presidential race so as you suggested. There's a political component to this too and it could be about from a republican perspective building a case for additional election security laws and democrats. Of course would probably view those efforts as an attempt. Voter suppression okay. So let's come home to massachusetts. There are a lot of democratic players in the bay state who might be waiting in the wings to join a biden harris administration when things are finalized former surgeon general vivek murthy. He was just named head of biden's corona virus task force. You've got secretary. John carey congressman. Joe kennedy maybe even senator elizabeth warren. Are you hearing more about the role that massachusetts leaders and elected former elected officials might play in forming a biden administration as the boston mayor. Marty walsh said over the weekend. He can't take everyone from massachusetts. So that is an impressive roster. You just ticked up marty. Walsh himself by the way has notably not said that he is seeking a third term officially as he's facing challenges from michelle wu and andrea campbell. So it's possible. That marty walsh could you can be in the running for some type of position you know john carey you mentioned. He campaigned hard for joe biden. He could be a candidate for either his old job or some other one he was confirmed by the senate in ninety four to three vote in two thousand thirteen so he might be somebody who could actually get through relatively easily Joe kennedy does make some sense because he's not going back to congress and he's kind of free agent when his term is up warns appointment would be a little bit more complicated though yet. Let's talk about that. What is the thought. I mean with the there being republican governor who would be in a position to re appoint at least in the short term her replacement to the senate. I think the uncertainty in georgia could hurt her chances. Keep in mind. We've got these probably two senate runoffs on january fifth in georgia and so we won't know who controls the senate until then and biden may wanna make his cabinet picks earlier than that. So let's just suppose the democrats dream scenario they pull off upsets in georgia and win win both of those seats so that would make the senate fifty fifty if we count independence caucus with the democrats so then the vice president. Comal harris would cast tie-breaking votes. They would effectively control the senate. But imagine in that scenario if they then appointed elizabeth warren to cabinet post and allowed charlie baker to fill her seat with a republican who would temporarily hand control back to the gop after they had fought so hard to control the senate that would be temporary until a special election. Of course. but. I'm sure the democrats would be loath to do that. Okay so last question for you callum. The commonwealth returned its entire delegation except newly elected jake across from the fourth. Everyone's a democrat yesterday congresswoman katherine. Clark told us here on the show that the democratic agenda in washington dakata change much in the new year. But good chance that the democrats have a slimmer lead in the house and will not be in control of the senate. So what does that mean for the agenda that leaders here.

"Saw some of these very important and significant public policy and public safety issues going forward. So we've heard from some activists that are concerned that the longer this is taking the more likely it is that the legislation could get watered down and be less meaningful. Are you optimistic that Massachusetts is going to meet this moment in pass meaningful reform? I nothing for granted and. And given the urgency of the moment giving given how how temperatures? Flash around this issue and given frankly the depth and expertise of many of the members of the legislature I. Really don't understand why we don't have a bill I appreciate that That the governor. Asked for action this fall instead of you know whenever it is the legislature decided to get around to it when they're back in regular session after the new after the New Year, and he has a lot of influence. With legislative leadership by hope, he'll engage and I hope you'll get folks to agreement. I know that there's some parts of this bill or the proposals I've read about that are not easy. You know qualified immunity for example, is among the hardest issues I think there is a solution there. And I hope we get a compromise and I hope the bill is meaningful and not just to you know another round of better training but really an opportunity not that that is important but an opportunity to think about. So many of the to think in fresh ways about so many of the things we asked police to do. That you know intent. Is used to do you know dealing with with mental health issues and substance abuse dealing with truancy? and. And frankly. So many of the issues that surround poverty and we've been starving. Our strategies for dealing with many of those issues and it has fallen to the police in many respects is also fall into teachers, and so we have an opportunity to re-think. So much of that in marvelous creative ways with the help and input of the communities themselves you mentioned qualified immunity that has been a major sticking point here I'm wondering what you would say to say law enforcement officers who might be listening thinking you know, hey, I go out there every day put my life on the line to serve and to protect and citizens average citizens can understand what it's like in the heat of the moment What would you say to someone like that?.

"And the years into the sixties and seventies We've continued to see the growth in school resource officers placed especially in predominantly black and brown schools really culminating After saying Hook took place. So in Twenty, twelve in Massachusetts. The. Commonwealth path that gun violence, reduction act, which effectively mandated district assigned one school resource officer unless you're a waiver process. So that's So most recently, it was concerned about school shootings, the legacy of school shootings since twenty twelve in Massachusetts that's been our driver. Yes, but interestingly, enough that is often quoted as a reason for. But when we looked at the data from our report we found that there was little convincing evidence that the presence of an armed police officer had much of an effect on school safety at all, we looked at it. So I was just going to say just for listeners, your report actually has a giant F- in red on the cover. which is damning. So take us briefly through those findings. Yes. Absolutely so you know I we always here we need police officers in schools because what about a school shoot? Well, we looked at a Meta analysis which took twelve studies and none of them indicated a positive impact of police presence on School Safety Outcomes furthermore in twenty eighteen, the Washington Post look at nearly two hundred incidents of gun violence on campuses and could only find time to win SRO successfully intervene in a shooting. So effectively, you know although the school shooting argument is often made. You know. Proof that it works isn't really backed up as we only to be effective in one percent of those occurrences. So. What just for listeners? SRO. As a school resource officer what kind of outcomes would you have expected to see in your Meta analysis had placement of school resource officers in Schools Ben Successful or effective according to your organization. Founded in one percent. Higher Than One one percents shootings being prevented is that what you're talking about? Certainly I mean but you know. It's thrown out as an argument in justification. But when you look at the actual data, it is nowhere near the sectors as I think some people would think you know some of our other findings you really get to the point that. You know. PEOPLE ACQUAINT SAFETY IN SCHOOLS With the placement of police. But when you look at the research, there isn't data backup a police officer in schools really make them safer but there are a number of negative stacks of police officers being in schools we see that. What happens when you have an Austrian school? All of the time is that low level non violent behaviors that have historically been handled through the school disciplinary system are stomach being criminalized and that criminalization of lower level often typical adolescent behaviors fall disproportionately on black and Brown soon and on students with disabilities. And you know part of the reason why is what is considered subject to school disciplines being sent to the principal's office versus what's considered you know criminal or delinquent or something off the school police officers should be brought in those lines are so blurred even Sr rose aren't clear on them. We have situations right here in the Commonwealth where one pound certain behavioral handled by school discipline in the next town over..

"Think they're thinking that but it's a really complicated time where sometimes even feeling good can feel bad in I just want to chime in merit think. You're absolutely right. There's there's a piece you said that just sticks with me, which is whether we would have been here absent pandemic and I good friend of Mine William. WHO's over at the? Urban. League eastern Massachusetts says something which I thought was powerful. He said it took a pandemic enforcing us to stay at home with family and pay attention for us to have twenty twenty vision. I for us, it took a pandemic the forces to see racism in all aspects of society. took us the seat inequities in health care not just think that's powerful that it took us. We couldn't run out the door to to get in our cars and in had drive time to where we had to watch that shooting over and over again or that that that knee on the on the. Neck and I think that's where we are i. think the other piece that I think is critical here is There's a concern you know when I think about the the militia that we're seeing play out in the last week or two was seeing them all over the country I have more African Americans calling me saying you know what I think I need to get a gun licence. Because if there ever were an incident how would protect my family and if you talk to your black friends across the country, you'll find that if they don't already have a gun license and they've been exercising their Second Amendment right there. Now, having some real serious family conversations around getting one whether the systems in their cities and towns allow them to get one without restrictions in in you'll find that actually can play out along racial lines as well when certain communities can't get a full licence because they're considered high risk areas like a Brockton or Roxbury. in Boston. So this so much going on and Chadwick Bozeman passing just sorta adds extra weight on all of that. I WanNa stay on this the gun portion from it and I do later WanNa come back to Chadwick. Bozeman. To and and so much loss in two thousand twenty. Christian Science Monitor says that women now make up forty percent of first time gun buyers, and that has gun sales hit historic highs amid the unrest. This year black Americans represented fifty eight percent of gun purchases outpacing all other groups, and we have a narrative about who gun buyers are, who second amendment supporters are, where gun culture is in America and I'm. I want sort out how to feel and think about what those changes signifies some meredith. Let me give you chance to respond all add while I'm certainly no expert but I think you know when I would imagine that when there is a shift in terms who's buying, we have to consider why right? What what positions have we put people in to make them feel like this is the route they have to go end. To protect Emily's and I think I mean Gosh to even say the word militia it's it's it's It's a frightening. The whole concept is frightening. So I am not surprised. We're seeing a different demographic of people who were saying this is in need made a want whereas I think perhaps my impression of of a gun owner before that with someone who wanted that right but didn't necessarily need So you know I'm not I'm not surprised is all I can say. So how Gary scared are we I mean holy cow Michael. I will tell you. Activists, are moving many different circles. I'm terrified. I. Think.

Of State William Galvin told wr this morning that they shouldn't be worried about safety at the polls I think you'll see a safe as going to the supermarket and I think we've all been to the supermarket and depending I started we've seen the precautions that have been taken in those situations and I think you're gonNA see.

There are several precincts that are located here and I have to say it doesn't feel that different oftentimes, at these polling places and in the in the middle of the day, there's not a lot of activity. And there's plenty of space for people to move around. I would say Bill Galvin's assertion that it's safe as a supermarket is probably true at least at this. East Boston high school where I am now. There's a steady flow of people coming in really plenty of room for people to socially distance. As you pointed out, a lot of people have already voted so.

"Miss you. An issue, too. It's great to have you back on although I'm not I. Have Mixed feelings about that because we're having you back on because we're have this word up coming up with our corona virus numbers and I don't like that word when it comes to the virus, but we said if the numbers went up, we would talk about it. We pay attention. So how much up are they? And how concerned should we be? Well I think maybe rather than concerned. Vigilant is more the appropriate word at this point you know. The state is keeping a very close eye on those numbers, and you can see the state's willingness to act to keep them down in those strict new travel regulations that take effect this Saturday I see the bottom line right now is that our numbers are still nice and low, especially compared to this spring here into the poor other parts of the country where there are surges right now we're averaging somewhere between two hundred or closer to three, hundred reported new confirmed and probable cases a day. So Carey I. Get it that that is. Much better than it was in the spring, but also not the bar we we want to have long term, and that that above two hundred number is more than it was for a while, right? It's a bit more. I mean in in late June early, July the total new cases, were attending to hover closer to two thirty or two forty a day more recently. We're seeing closer to two seventy to eighty a day, but decided to put that in perspective at our peak in mid to late April, we were seeing more like twenty two hundred new cases a day so nearly ten times as much and if you want the visual on this there. There are some really beautiful graphs of covid in Massachusetts at wbz Dot Org and to me.

How other I have a student that will be returned to Umass amherst and she will be living off campus with other students. And I WANNA. Get an idea of what is the safest way to transition her into this housing essentially into new covid circle. Let's say do we pre-test? Or what do you suggest we do? Who'd like to take that? I can take a stab at that I. Have I have a child going back to college also in a very similar? So the guidance in Massachusetts is to quarantine you for two weeks upon arrival, and most colleges in Massachusetts are employing a testing program so I would refer you to the U. Mass. Amherst testing program I know they have one. In it'll be very important for your daughter to follow the quarantine as well as testing in other guidelines that are in place, and the schools are addressing off Cape a students as well as the on campus students because the whole community is going to potentially be affecting each other. So Dr Boucher. Let's say cavs. Daughter gets there on day. One starts. Quarantining gets tested on day. Three gets a result back on day five. That's negative does does her daughter still need nine more days of quarantine? Now that she's had a negative result from attest. That is the plan, and so for most colleges in Massachusetts they will observe the quarantine and have testing, and that's because the risk. Is relatively higher than what we call a congregate setting where all the students are living together, but again it's really important to defer to each colleges individual plan. We're working with seven colleges, and they all have subtle differences, so but in general. The quarantine will hold testing. Remember is just one point in time during the.

Here is Jeff Farnsworth president of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association in Framingham earlier today Massachusetts has some of the best and most respected law enforcement leaders in the country bar none.

Boston thank you thank you very much for inviting. Chief ties the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police, association outlined specific concerns about the House and Senate bills at the press conference today. What are those concerns?

In terms of the the length of the bills the house bill was was over ninety pages in the Senate bill with forty seven amendments turned into well over one hundred pages I think at the end of the day. You know the it just seems as though this. The language has been incredibly rushed You know we have a deadline. They have a deadline. I should say by the end of this month things of They were looking to get things off I guess. Pretty quickly early on. They seemed to stall and then at the end of the day. We have this language that we we know we're trying to look through in understanding in hours and then formulate a response, so it's been. It's been incredibly challenging. So I WANNA. Ask I understand. There's a lot of material in the two bills. That's not really substantive I did hear substantive concerns earlier today and I don't mean to be dismissive.

And both molly and Holly's case are going to be looked into and I think they're going be looked at in a whole new way because now decades later less and less people believe that this was a crime of opportunity and more people than ever are convinced winced that there was a Predator in the area. Though holly didn't live at the Lake House she visited it regularly like maybe someone saw her. Maybe they became familiar with her schedule and her habits. And maybe that same person did the same thing for molly but the question still remains who who is the Massachusetts murderer. Molly's parents went on to create the Molly bish foundation to help other families who are faced with the same kind of tragedy and you can find a number of resources on their website which you can either find by googling the Molly bish foundation or by going to our website we will link out to it and if you have any information on either the case of Molly Bish or holly premium you can contact the Massachusetts State.

"According to an article from the Berkshire Eagle One hunter tells investigators that while he was out in the town of Palmer which is a neighboring town of war and were molly lived. He spotted some weird cloth on the ground. It was blue cloth breath that looked like it could have been from bathing suit now when police go and check this out. It seems almost like it can't be real. It was old. It was degraded in and dirty but it looked like the same color and same material that molly was wearing on the day. She went missing right away. The suit is sent off for DNA retesting and a more intensive search is conducted in that area weeks later a public announcement is made. Molly has finally been found. Law Enforcement Confirms that DNA testing on the suit confirmed that it was molly and in addition to that they also were able to uncover bones and teeth that were linked to molly Ali as well okay. But she was found in a neighboring town like she still wasn't that far away from where everyone was looking right. Here's the thing I couldn't find ain't any source material. That would say exactly where the searches were conducted. So I don't know if anyone looked in Palmer specifically in the woods that was called Whiskey hills where she was found but I did find an article from the Boston Globe. That said police believed she was buried in a shallow grave near where the items were found years later. So so it's possible that even if that area was searched on foot I mean someone could have walked right over her without knowing that she was there and it took all these years of rain and weather to uncover her grave. Does law enforcement of a release anything else like cause of death or anything more than what we got in Holly's case not really like her remains were found so much later than holidays that they couldn't determine a cause of death based on just the skeletal remains means alone. But all that means is like to me that okay. We can rule out blunt force trauma. There's no damage to the skull. But everything else. We really needs some kind of soft tissue to determine and they never say anything about the highway. GOIN- inadequately talked about in Holly's case but strangulation has never been mentioned in Mali's so as wonderful as it is to have one answer to know where molly was now. The realization came quickly to everyone that having her remains didn't an actually get them any close to her killer. Oh what about the area where she was found. Thought tell them anything not much more than they already knew. Everyone says says the area would have likely only been known to locals and more specifically to local like hunters and fishermen but let me clarify just a little bit. They didn't say publicly if the sight of her remains or anything found at the scene told them anything. But it's possible that they learned something because the DA in the county. Did I'd say shortly. After her remains were found that their list of six or seven people that they had early on in the case at some point had gotten narrowed down to two to three. I I don't know if that's because of her remains where they were found the condition that they were found in or festively did like earlier on and he's now just making this announcement because there's been a break in the case and I really believe it's possible that they had persons of interest or suspects narrowed down even further because the following year in two thousand thousand four a grand jury was called to probe into the case they plan to call all eleven people who fail polygraphs and basically like compel them to testify defy. So did anything come from that. Well that's kind of unknown like grand jury. Testimonies are always secrets. I did find signed two thousand five newspaper Article From the Boston Globe. That gave a little bit of information on the proceedings. They said there was like two hundred fifty witnesses that were called like seventy pieces as of like our exhibits that were entered into evidence and all that the DA would say was that they uncovered new leads because of this grand jury so it wasn't enough. Take a trial but it did point them in a new or different direction right as promising as that seemed like then nothing happened until two thousand nine when investigators got their first break in the case in a long time the year before. A A man named Rodney Stenger was arrested in Florida now. He was arrested for the murder of his girlfriend. And it might not seem like a connection at first like Rodney is half a country away. His girlfriend was much older than molly. Or even holly but after his arrest the sister of the girlfriend who was murdered came forward our word and said that shortly before her death she had been telling her that Rodney was involved in the murder of Molly bish that Molly Bish case in Massachusetts. She said that Rodney had been living there at the time. So when investigators went to check this lead out they found that she was right. Rodney had gotten a firearms. Your arms permit renewed just two months before Molly's disappearance in town not too far away from where she went missing and I found a picture of this firearms license on Telegram Dot Com website. Do you notice anything interesting. Wait what this looks. Exactly like the guy from the sketches. Yeah I am going to send you right now. A side by side of the two. Oh my gosh. It's that is Eerie Ashley. I mean even like the bags under their eyes and like their showers like this is almost creepy for sure. But here's I think beyond the resemblance and the fact that he might have been talking about the Bish case what we end up learning about this guy is baffling. The same woman who alerted ordered police to Rodney's possible involvement also went to his trailer a longtime after his arrest like her sister's old belongings and according to mass live. When and she was there she found a bunch of young girls hairclips hair ties and even a young girls necklace like stuff that she said was definitely out of place stuff that she said definitely would not belong to her sister and she said there was also a safety deposit posit box key and all of that was handed over to police and we still don't know the outcome if those things forever tested if the key to the lock box like actually found anything and we have no idea if they were able to actually definitively link any of those items found in his trailer to molly or to Holly I mean obviously this is not a good look for this guy but outside of living in Massachusetts does he have any connection to molly other than like this woman's story that her sister told her about her and then what about holly like? I guess everyone believes that they're linked but can can this guy actually be linked to her anyway. Well here's where it gets really interesting so not only does Rodney. Look a heck of of a lot like the guy in the white car. His brother Randy actually owned a white sedan that he would have had access to so then when when they start looking at his brother. Randy Bay find when you know it in nineteen ninety three at the time. A Holly's disappearance Randy was actually elite. Living in Broomfield were holly's body was found and not just like the town according to Boston twenty-five News He. It was actually living in a tent in the woods. What's your her body was found yet? My in the early days of hollies investigation. They actually actually spoke to Randy stanger about her and he was on polices radar. Okay so was it like both brothers we still. I don't know maybe both of them were involved. Maybe one of them is covering the other. Maybe they're both sick and twisted and acted out like in the same same way at very different times girls who were very similar or maybe just maybe they had nothing to do with it because has good good as they look for it as suspicious everything surrounding these two men look in two thousand twelve things. Were about to get much more complicated for investigators instigators by the time two thousand twelve rolls around investigators had been looking hard at Rodney stanger for the murders of both molly and hallway. According to mass live he had even been officially named a person of interest and police also had his brother in their perforate trying to figure out how oh he fit into the equation but then they got thrown a huge curve ball items from the crime scene were holly was found or sent off for testing. Staying in a DNA match was found something at the crime scene matched a man but not Rodney and not randy the DNA matched a man named David Peculiar. Who exactly now? I have a hard time even explaining this part of the story. Because there's so little information that has been released but ABC News reported that there were some items collected back in nineteen ninety-three close to wear her body was found and one of those items was linked to this David Guy so I don't know if it was something he owned. I don't know if it was like like a biological sample. I have literally no idea but let me read you a direct quote that. ABC News got from an official quote. The nature and character of the the items tested as well as its condition and location upon discovery suggests that Mr Pouliot and or persons associated with him were any immediate crime scene area at the time. Relevant Holly's disappearance and the location of her remains and quote. Okay okay but I don't even know what that means. I don't even know what to think about this. And here's the thing after this announcement officials named David as is a person of interest but not an actual suspect. Okay Hey and like in the statement also reference. Maybe someone else maybe other people will. And what is it that they found right. They say Mr and or persons associated with him were in the media. So do they believe you've it's more than one person. I mean without knowing what it was I I almost feel like we can rule out that it was a biological sample taken from the body again. We don't don't know the condition that the body was found in but specifically said something nearby and I mean it makes me think of like a cigarette butt or something but oh I didn't think of that but that's smick totally. Just speculating. Because it seems like something that would be found in the woods and I wonder if they found like additional cigarette butts that didn't have like his. DNA had someone else's because wiles. Would you think someone else's there right. which would mean there'd be at least another person there but I guess I'm coming.

That's B. R. O. K. L. I N. E. N. DOT COM Brooklyn. Everything you need and to live your most comfortable life in late October of nineteen ninety-three hunters found Holly's remains means in the neighboring town of Broomfield. Now the details surrounding this were hard for me to piece together because very little information about Holly's case has been released to the public public. Some news articles reported that her body had been found at least one. The Standard Speaker newspaper actually specified that hunters discovered. Skeletal remains. Now this might not seem like a big deal to some but to me. It really is like skeletal. Remains would suggest that she had been out there almost the entire two and a half months since she went missing. Yeah we're as a body. It indicates that perhaps she wasn't put there until sometime after she went missing and the search will be called off. Well where exactly do they find. Inter was at a place that they had already searched will according to that same article. That said they found skeletal remains. It says that they found her in an area that had not been previously searched which is a little bit baffling to me because even though it was like a neighboring town the actual location of where she was found was only like five miles issue rush from where she went missing so listen I've never been a search coordinator. I have never even been able to participate in a search like this. I'm speaking from a place of total ignorance here but I don't get how this happens. We had the dog. We had the helicopters people on foot and just five miles away in a wooded hunting area. I mean she. was there the whole time nine. Could it have been like jurisdictional like they couldn't go there. Yeah I mean that's totally an option again. I know each agency is different and rules vary from state to state. So I don't know oh for sure. All we know is that she was found very close to where she was last. Seen alive going to look at those puppies did they release are announced the cause of death so oh again maybe so much like the way she was found. I'm a little unsure of her cause of death as well because in all of the newspaper archives. I reviewed for this episode. I only he found one single article in the Hartford Current. That said the her cause of death was strangulation but it was never re reported ever again by any one so I don't know if they knew something everyone else didn't or if that little piece Scott missed as the case got reported I mean I even kind of wonder if maybe somehow the paper heard a detail like her highway bone was broken and maybe someone official like offhandedly made a comment like Oh. It was likely strangulation. Right because with skeletal skeletal remains. That would be the only way you could determine strangulation right and listen everything before. And after this Article Very Hush Hush about what was found the condition of her remain Maine. So it's hard to say for sure without some kind of cooperation now in the early days of the investigation. Police weren't releasing a lot of information but many people were working under the assumption that this was some kind of crime of opportunity like again. Holly didn't live in the area. No one knew she plan to go see those puppies. It only made sense that some awful man drove by saw holly in her brother and decided to act but this was a horrifying thought. Because how do you catch someone like like that like. They're almost a ghost. Of course investigators did all of the normal things they went door to door. They talk to the neighbors. They looked into people's backgrounds looking for any kind of perpetrators of any crime but again and again they came up empty-handed and again and again they wondered if their guy was someone. I'm just passing through the worst possible coincidence and they wondered this for weeks then months and even years by the year two thousand. That's really the reality. So many people had come to believe it was someone just passing through. It was a one in a million chance. And he's probably gone now and I think that idea left some people with a sense of peace. At least he's not here anymore. But in June of two thousand Massachusetts residents would come to realize realize that this man could very well still be among them. June twenty-seventh two thousand thousands of a hot Tuesday in Warren Massachusetts. Where Molly bish lipped? It was early in her summer. Break and Molly. Following the footsteps of her older brother. John had gotten a summer job as a lifeguard at the local pond. Now on that day that letter she wrote to the parents of a young missing girl almost seven years before was probably the furthest thing from her mind. Molly Molly knew that holly had never been found but really nothing else like that had happened since either her town of words still seemed like a safe place. Molly Molly had no way of knowing that on that morning she would begin down a road that could once again intersect with hollies and that day started off well off instead of waking up by alarm molly was awoken by her mom. Who told her that one of her friends had actually gotten in a car accident and was in the hospital? Now Molly was shook by this news news and her mom offered to take her to the hospital and she's like listen. We can call you into work like I know this crazy but molly had just started this new lifeguarding geic and she knew that people were counting owning on her to be there so she insisted like no mom. I need to go to work so like she'd been doing all the mornings before this summer. Molly's mom got in the passenger seat of the car and let molly drive them. Both I to the police station to pick up the two-way radio. Mali would have with her on shift and then to the pond now. Her mom didn't like work there with her but molly only had her permit so her mom had to drive with her to drop her off in pick her up each day that she worked. Sources differ on the exact time but molly and her mom make it into the pond sometime between nine forty five and ten. AM and molly screws off to set per station and get ready for swimmers. That she knows will be arriving any minute. Sure enough the swimmers arrive. There's a little swim class or lessons that are held regularly. They are not like just open swim so it is very like scheduled and when they show one of the MOMS notices that. There's just no lifeguard. which is weird like? This isn't a job. Teenagers would normally flake out on and not one that molly would flake out on. But many of the people who showed up didn't know molly intimately like yeah. It's a small town. Maybe they knew her name but today she had just started working exactly and to Bam a teen kid flaked on their job. Maybe like it does happen. Was the first aid kit by her. Chair is open and her sandals are right there so they're thinking you know she's probably going to be back any minute now but after minutes pass and then hours concerned or maybe even frustrated parents. Inform Molly's boss that the lifeguard who is supposed to be on duty never showed now Mali's boss is a guy named Ed and Ed sees the same scene that they did molly's chair set up first first aid kits open sandals right there but no molly and it's super clear to him that she had definitely been there at some point not just because of her sandals because because of the two way radio that was there to that molly had to pick up and drop off like every day at the police station before and after her shift so the fact that she wasn't back was really bizarre bazaar so ed uses to radio to call into the police station and let them know that molly is Mia. Now the problem ways that even though Ed thought this was is off. I don't think anyone fully got the gravity of the situation because police don't like call her family right that second. They don't start a search right away in fact when an F. leaves the pond to go run some errands he actually runs into. Molly's older brother John at the local store and he doesn't even think to mention to John and that Molly's missing or molly's like not at her job and listen. I think all of the crime donkey ears just perked up a little bit. I can feel it but that just kind of shows.
