NH Cold Case Getting Attention
A press conference on a 30-year cold case by the NH Attorney General Joseph Foster will take place later this morning. The case became known when a hunter discovered the remains of an adult white female and a female child inside a 55-gallon drum in Nov. of 1985 in Allentown NH. In May of 2000, the remains of two girls a 1-3 year old and a 4-8 year old were found in the same area. Officials believe the victims were killed sometime between 1977-1985. The deaths have all been ruled homicides, but the specific cause of death has not been released publicly. DNA tests performed years ago indicate that the woman found is related to the oldest and youngest girls found in the woods but don’t distinguish whether she was their mother, sister, or aunt. It is unclear whether the third girl is related to any of the other victims.
