Timeline of events leading to the identification of NH serial killer Bob Evans
In the wake of Thursday's press conference with the New Hampshire Attorney General, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and New Hampshire State Police involving the deaths of several people, a serial killer has been identified.
"Bob Evans" is expected to be an alias of the man responsible for at least five murders, six if you include the "presumed death" of 1981 cold case victim Denise Beaudin.
He is suspected of the four Allenstown murders, where a woman and three children were found dead in barrels in Bear Brook Garden trailer park.

Fingerprints led police to reveal that the three different names were actually Bob Evans, who was wanted on warrants. Evans was a fugitive for about 12 years before he was arrested. Despite this discovery, due to the extensive number of alias', police can not be sure of Evans' true identity or date of birth.
Authorities laid out a timeline of events to show Evans' known activity from when he left New Hampshire in 1981 until he died in prison in 2010.
TIMELINE OF EVENTS
In the late 1970's, Evans arrived here in New Hampshire. He resided at 925 Hayward St. in Manchester.
In 1980, Evans was arrested in February and June and listed his spouse as Elizabeth Evans, though authorities do not know who that is. In October of the same year, Evans was arrested again, and did not list a spouse.
Evans and Beaudin disappeared together in 1981, but no missing persons report was ever filed with authorities. The couple disappeared with their daughter, then known as "Dawn", but Evans later gave the daughter, now known as "Lisa", up for adoption.
In 1984 and 1985, Evans changed his name to Curtis Kimball. In 1985, Evans was arrested for drunk driving in California. He had "Lisa" with him at the time. Around June or July of that year, Evans abandoned "Lisa" at a trailer park in Scott's Valley, California. The girl was placed into foster care and later adopted.
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 1986, when California went to investigate Evans for abandoning his child, he was no longer in the Santa Cruz area.
In September of 1986, Investigators confirmed a latent fingerprint match between Gordon Jenson (Jensen) and print obtained from individual arrested as Curtis Mayo Kimball in 1985.
In October of 1986, felony arrest warrants were put out for one of Evans' aliases: Gordon Curtis Jenson.
In the press conference they said they lost track of Evans for about two years. They don't have any investigative information about his whereabouts during time period.
In 1988, Evans was arrested in San Luis Obispo, California for vehicle theft. This time, his alias was Gerry Mockerman. The car was stolen out of Idaho, confirming he spent some time in that area.
In March of 1989, Evans was arrested on warrants out of Santa Cruz, under the alias of Gerry Mockerman.
In October of 1990, Evans made parole after serving about 18 months of his three year sentence and took off the next day and wasn't seen for a period of time.
Officials lost track of his whereabouts for a block of time and were unsure of where he was during this time frame - Evans was then a fugitive for 12 years.
In 2000, two more young girl's bodies were found in another barrel within walking distance. The older woman was discovered to be related to the oldest and the youngest child, but not the middle child.
In August of 2001, Evans married Eunsoon Jun in Richmond, California using the name Lawrence William Vanner. It was a backyard marriage and no official paperwork was filed. He was working in the neighborhood doing several odd jobs in this time period, which is how he met Jun.
In September of 2002, Jun was found buried in her basement, partially dismembered. Lawrence Vanner was fingerprinted and found to be Curtis Kimball.
In November of 2002, Evans was arrested for Jun's murder.
In June of 2003, Evans was convicted of Jun's murder and was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.
In August of 2003, DNA testing determined Evans and Lisa were not biologically related. San Bernardino COSO initiated an investigation into the true identity of Lisa Jenson.
On December 28, 2010, Evans died in prison of natural causes.
In 2014, San Bernardino COSO enlisted the assistance of DNAadoption.com and one of their Search Angels, a genetic genealogist to identify links to relatives of Lisa.
In 2016, A first cousin and a grandfather of Lisa were identified in New Hampshire which led to proving that Lisa is "Dawn Beaudin" – daughter of missing person, Denise Beaudin.
In the summer of 2016, San Bernardino COSO contacted NHSP and Manchester PD regarding the identification of Dawn Beaudin and connection with missing female, Denise Beaudin and suspect convicted of homicide in 2002.
In October of 2016 – Evans’ DNA profile compared to all three minor female victims from Allenstown case. Results showed Evans was the father to non-maternally related child, the middle child, found in 2000.
In December of 2016, police file a missing person report for Beaudin.
In January of 2017, Foster announced a search of 925 Hayward Street in Manchester in connection with the missing person's case.
