A Billerica mother, raised in Brookline, vanishes without a trace. Who knows what happened to her? And did police fail to do their job when the first call for help came in? I-Team reporter Joe Bergantino has the exclusive details on a cold case that should never have gone cold.


The following week Amy was out sick. By week’s end her husband emailed Amy’s boss a resignation letter. Amy never called in. Never picked up her paychecks.

Amy’s supervisor suspected the worst. So he called the Billerica Police Department and told a detective about Amy’s history of abuse and that he feared she had been murdered.

So what did the police do?

They made one telephone call to Robert Desmond who said Amy had decided to leave the area because of her encounter with the private eye.

The Billerica Police Detective believed him and did nothing else.

Joe Bergantino:
“Do you think as Chief, a phone call was all that should have been done?

Daniel Rosa, Billerica Police Chief:
“I don’t think I want to comment on that right now. We’re still in the investigation, involved in the investigation.”

Police never went to Amy’s home to interview her husband face-to-face. They never bothered to go to Lahey Clinic and interview Amy’s co-workers.


as far as we know, detectives still have not tried to obtain Robert Desmond’s phone or credit card records or his computer hard drive. They have not brought Desmond into a police station for questioning or tried to talk with his son alone. Which makes Amy Sher’s family skeptical about authorities assurances that they are doing everything they can to solve this case.

Details of Disappearance
Sher was last seen on October 18, 2002 at approximately 12:00 pm in the vicinity of Alwife Station in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

There have been rumors that Amy was the victim of domestic abuse at the hands of her husband, but those claims have not been substantiated. The husband had also reportedly made threats against Amy's family in the past, causing them to take out a restraining order against him. The husband had also caused an estrangement between Amy and her family.
At her workplace, supervisors documented several years of what they called significant and severe emotional and physical abuse. Amy never said who was responsible and rejected numerous offers of help.

In October 2002, a private detective tried to reunite Amy with her family. She refused. The following week, Amy was out sick. By week?s end, her husband emailed Amy?s boss a resignation letter. Amy never called in, and never picked up her paychecks. Police did not begin a investigation into Amy's disappearance until April 2004, eighteen months after her last known contact.

Search for Billerica woman appears to have gone cold

McCullough is convinced Amy met death at the hands of a man Billerica police Sgt. Roy Frost would describe as "a monster."
