Danvers High grad in critical condition


Police are asking residents in the Columbia community with information about the crime to submit tips anonymously through the area’s Crimestoppers program. The Bires family, the Midlands, S.C., Crimestoppers program, which operates an anonymous tip line, and the Columbia Police Department are all contributing to the reward.

“Obviously, this is someone’s life, this is someone’s loved one, and we need to know what happened,” Timmons said.

Bires graduated from Danvers High, where she played field hockey, in 2006. She studied nursing at the University of South Carolina and traveled abroad to China and Australia before graduating with honors in 2011, MacKinnon said. She came back to South Carolina to work, and she and her boyfriend moved to the area.

“We are praying for her recovery; she is going to have a long fight,” MacKinnon said.
