NH1'S TOP STORIES OF 2017: No. 9, Footprints of a Serial Killer
In January, the New Hampshire Attorney General's office made a big announcement. They had partially solved a decades-old cold case and linked it to a Manchester woman's disappearance and a serial killer.
Findings of a search of 925 Hayward St. in Manchester in connection with the missing person's case of Denise Beaudin from 1981 revealed that her boyfriend Robert "Bob" Evans killed the four unidentified victims found in barrels in Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown in 1985 and 2000.

Beaudin was last seen by her family on Thanksgiving day in 1981 with Evans, and her six-month-old daughter. Authorities believe she is dead.
During the announcement, the AG's office gave a timeline and many aliases for Evans who died in 2010 in prison in California as Curtis Kimball.
On Aug. 18, New Hampshire authorities announced a major discovery. They found the true identity of Evans.
The New Hampshire Attorney General's office used DNA from an adult believed to be a child of the man they knew as Evans.
That DNA confirmed Evans' true identity to be Terry Peder Rasmussen. Rasmussen was born in 1943 in Denver, Colorado. They are still looking for more victims, including Beaudin and the mother of Rasmussen's daughter who was one of the bodies found in the barrels in Allenstown.
