Convicted murderer killed NH woman, victims found in barrels — SHREVEPORT CONNECTION -- Officials

Authorities have identified the man they believed killed five women and girls in New Hampshire as Bob Evans, a drifter who died in a California prison while serving time for the murder of his wife.

Evans is believed to be linked to the murders of one adult woman and three female children in Allenstown as well as the 1981 disappearance of Denise Beaudin. On Jan. 26 they will talk about the link between missing person Denise Beaudin, last seen in 1981; a 1985 cold case from Allenstown involving the discovery of four bodies not far from Bear Brook State Park - a woman and three children, from 1985; and an unsolved California murder case.

Foster said DNA evidence proved Evans is the father of one of the dead children.

Sometime in the mid-1980s, before his arrest in 2002 for killing his common law wife, Eunsoon Jun, Evans changed his name to Curtis Kimball, Foster said.

In Travis County, investigators say Evans might have known someone residing at an RV park in Austin during 1986.

Investigators hope that by releasing this information, someone could come forward who knew Evans or his daughter.

More Southern storms possible; 2 tornadoes confirmed
It is forecast the severe weather will continue throughout the weekend into Monday and that other U.S. states will be affected. Daniel Manzo, ABC News' meteorologist, said there have been 16 tornadoes this weekend, with 11 of them reported in Georgia.

Foster said investigators believe Evans killed Beaudin as the couple traveled west.

"We are extremely gratified we have been able to make this process, now we are hungry for more, we want to identify these victims", Strelzin said.

"We believe we have our killer", New Hampshire Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Strelzin announced at a press conference. Her family assumed the three left town to avoid financial troubles, and they never called police. Composite sketches (pictured, below) were made of the four victims, and science revealed that the woman was related to two of the girls. He is not the father of the other two children, investigators said.

"Please turn your focus toward the unidentified victims and other potentially known victims in this case", her statement urges, "and hopefully, there families will also be offered some closure as this investigation continues".

The time of their killings was narrowed to 1980 to 1984. Authorities found her dismembered body buried in the basement of their home that same year. The cause of deaths for the other two victims could not be determined.
