On November 10, 1985, the unidentified remains of an adult female (victim 1) and a juvenile female (victim 2) were discovered in a 55-gallon metal barrel covered with a tarp. They were located in a wooded area behind a trailer park adjacent to Bear Brook State Park near Allenstown, New Hampshire. Victim 1 is a white female aged 22 to 33, and victim 2 is a white female aged 5 to 11. On May 9, 2000, a second barrel was discovered approximately 100 yards from the first with the skeletal remains of victims 3 and 4. Victim 3 is a white female aged 2 to 4, and victim 4 is a white female aged 1 to 3. All four victims were killed between 1980 and 1985 and possibly as early as 1977.
