NH serial killer link helped by National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children realized the link between the missing 1981 woman and Allenstown murders after the identity of a kidnapped baby was revealed.
The New Hampshire Attorney General's office announced that they believed Bob Evans was involved in the disappearance of Denise Beaudin in Manchester along with the Allenstown murders Thursday.
This information came out after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) made the link to the two cases, according to a video posted on their Twitter.
The NCMEC started to investigate the Allenstown murders of one woman and three children, attempting to identify the victims after their bodies were found in 1985 and 2000.
NCMEC Forensic Case Manager Ashley Rodriguez had also been working with investigators from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's department in southern California for several years on a case of an unidentified girl who went by the name of Lisa.
"The victim is now a grown woman, but she was just a baby when she was kidnapped," Rodriguez said.
She went on to explain that the kidnapper raised her as his own child, but abandoned her when she was five years old.
DNA investigators were able to determine that Lisa's mother was Denise Beaudin, who disappeared in Manchester, New Hampshire.
"We now know that the daughter is alive and well and is accounted for and is living in another state, but we still do not know where Denise is at this time," said Shawn McCabe, Manchester Police Department Sergeant.
Investigators began to search Beaudin's former Manchester home, showing new pictures of her boyfriend at the time - Bob Evans.
With this new information, case managers at NCMEC began to connect the dots between the Manchester kidnapping and the Allenstown murders.
"When I started looking at a map of Manchester, New Hampshire it just dawns on me that Manchester is really close to Allenstown and to a case that Carol (supervisor of forensic services - missing children division) was working on," Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez then reached back out to San Bernardino County to ask if they were aware of the quadruple murder that occurred in Allenstown.
Agencies from California and New Hampshire looked for a connection, coming up with an astonishing result.
DNA evidence showed that Evans was the father of the middle child that was found murdered in a barrel in Allenstown.
"We've got who we believe is our offender; everything suggests that. We have a direct tie to one of the victims genetically. We have ties to Bob Evans and the scene itself in Allenstown, but we still don't know who any of these victims are," said Michael Kokoski, New Hampshire State Police Sergeant.
Anyone with information about Beaudin or the Allenstown victims is asked to call 1-800-THE-LOST.
