ALLENSTOWN - A Cold Case with new developments hopes to get national attention to solve the missing pieces. The N.H. Attorney General's office and state police released new information including updated photos of four victims. They say it's a case like no other.
In 1985 two unidentified bodies were found in a barrel in rural Allenstown by Bear Brook State Park. One was an adult woman and the other was a young girl. In 2000, two more young girl's bodies were found in another barrel within walking distance.
"It kind of tears at your heart strings, you know?" said Matt Peltier of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. "You've got three children, all females, in barrels of all things.
Isotope testing has narrowed down where the victims were born, their ages and helped depict more accurate sketches by tracking their water sources and diet. Based on that information, it's likely that the adult was the mother of the oldest and youngest child and that they were all from the New England area.
"At this point in time we are almost at our full, we are at our final line of what science can do to help us based on the remains to identify where they came from," said Ben Agati, assistant attorney general assigned to cold cases in the state.
A neighbor whose property is beside where the bodies were found on Deerfield Road said the new details surprised him.
"The photos I saw today look nothing like the originals, I mean unfortunately I still don't recognize any of them." said Richard Gagne.
Gagne said the police reached out to neighbors after the first two bodies were found in 1985. But they were never asked anything further once the other two bodies were discovered years later. Today's press conference aims to reach out to find someone, somewhere with any clues to this 30-year-old case.
