A Tip in a 37-Year-Old Cold Case Leads Investigators to Search Manchester Woods
MANCHESTER (AP) — Investigators are searching the woods behind a New Hampshire apartment complex in connection with the 1980 disappearance of a woman.
Officials say an anonymous tip has led them to the search in Manchester in the case of 25-year-old Denise Daneault.
On the night of June 8, 1980, Daneault, a divorced mother of two, went out to a private social club and never returned. Daneault lived on the same street as another woman, Denise Beaudin, who disappeared in 1981.
Beaudin was the girlfriend of a man later suspected to have killed her and others while using numerous names in multiple states. In 1981, he was known as Bob Evans, but investigators determined his real name was Terry Peder Rasmussen.
It's unclear whether the cases are connected.
The NH Attorney General's office, the FBI Evidence Response team, NH State Police, Manchester Police Department, and Bay Area Recovery Canines all assisted in the search.
It is unknown if anything was found relating to Daneault's disappearance.
