Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound is offering a reward for information that leads to charges in the slaying of Mary Clare (Molly) Conley in Lake Stevens on June 1.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the reward fund was at $2,910, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Conley, 15, 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 friends were walking to the lake when a shooter in a passing vehicle on South Lake Stevens Road opened fire.

Sheriff’s detectives are asking businesses and residents in the Lake Stevens and Marysville area to share any surveillance video that may have captured the vehicle involved in the drive-by shooting about 11:18 that Saturday night.

Investigators are also looking into reports that two other drive-by shootings in Lake Stevens and Marysville later that night may be related. Those shootings, reported at 12:45 a.m. and 2:30 a.m., resulted in property damage, police said.

Surveillance cameras in the area may have recorded the vehicle involved in the fatal shooting. However, detectives have not determined what type of vehicle was involved.

Since the killing, the Sheriff’s Office has released little information on the investigation.

On Tuesday, Bureau Chief Kevin Prentiss, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said in an email that detectives have been reviewing tips and continue to review and evaluate the information gathered during the early stages of the investigation.

He said this includes witness statements, physical evidence and canvassing of the neighborhood where the shooting occurred.

However, he said, no suspects have been identified.

People wishing to contribute to the reward fund may go to any Wells Fargo Bank branch and give money to the Molly Conley Reward Fund, which was set up by the American Legion.

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 is eligible for the reward. Information also may be relayed to the Sheriff’s Office tip line at 425-388-3845.
