Reward in Molly Conley murder case risesMARYSVILLE — Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Friday night they arrested a Marysville man in connection with the shooting death of Molly Conley.

The 15-year-old Seattle girl was shot in a drive-by shooting on June 1 on South Lake Stevens Road as she was walking with some friends. She had been out celebrating her birthday.

Molly’s father, John Conley, said he is thrilled with the arrest and thanks the police and everyone in the community for all their support.

When John Conley first spoke about his daughter’s murder, he said he was desperate for an arrest and was determined to never give up on solving Molly’s murder.

“We’re going to find out who this was and we are going to find out exactly why and we are going to be sure that this doesn’t happened to anybody else,” he said.

    i live in lake stevens, about a mile away from where this happened! molly and her friends were in my driveway talking up at the neighbor kid about twenty min before i heard the sirens. when i heard what had happened the next day i was saddened that such an outstanding kid was just taken away from her parents without reason! my thoughts go out to her friends, family and most of all her parents! i could not imagine what i would think, feel, or do if that happened to one of my kids! john from one father to another stay strong!

      You are so right and may her sole rest in peace and the culprit pay the price for taking such a beautiful young girls life for no reason at all. Just a plain idiot!!!

    Someone must have snitched. I hope they have the right shooter and can take the case all the way – life in prison and no parole.

    He's a big man in his own head, helps him compensate rejection of females for his little mans disease with that big gun in his hand. I hope he gets shanked by a Mexican in the Joint.
