Concord, NH (KTRS) A suspect with ties to St. Louis has been identified in connection with a decades old murder case in New Hampshire.
Investigators have linked Terrance Rasmussen to the murders of a woman and three children. The unidentified victims were found in barrels in Allenstown, New Hampshire in 1985 and in 2000. Rasmussen used several alias, including Bob Evans, before he died in a California prison in 2010.
Robert “Bob” Evans is also the suspect in the disappearance and likely murder of Denise Beaudin, who went missing in 1981 from Manchester, New Hampshire.
Rasmussen claims to have worked in St. Louis at a Reece Electrical during the early 1970s. Investigators need the public’s help to fill in the timeline of where Rasmussen was between the early and late 1970s. They hope this new information brings them closer to finally identifying the four victims.
Investigators say a DNA sample was obtained from a living adult believed to be Evans’s child. Testing on that adult’s DNA sample has confirmed that his father was the person known as Robert “Bob” Evans. Those DNA results and other investigative work have allowed investigators to confirm that Robert “Bob” Evans’s true identity is in fact, Terry Peder Rasmussen.
Anyone with information about the man we now know as Terry Peder Rasmussen is asked to contact any of the following authorities:
New Hampshire State Police-Cold Case Unit
Manchester Police Department
National Center for Missing & Exploited Children
