NH AG releases new information in 30-year-old Allenstown cold case murders


ALLENSTOWN - The N.H. Attorney General's Office announced teeth isotope testing has revealed more information on the cold case involving four bodies found in barrels in 1985 to 2000.

The AG Office in collaborating with state police, the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children held a press conference Tuesday where they announced the testing has narrowed the age, birth place and possible identities of the four victims.

The testing has allowed investigators to pinpoint the likely place where the victims lived before their bodies were found.

Investigators say testing of the hair, teeth and bones show the woman and two of the three girls probably lived in the northeast.

Investigators also said the third child found likely grew up in the Dakotas or Nebraska and they do not believe she is related.

Police believe the four victims were killed between 1980 and 1984.

Authorities said the bodies found in the two barrels near Bear Brook State Park were a young woman and three girls, that were found nearly 15 years apart.

Authorities also released digital composites of the woman and the three girls.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
