Bear Brook Jane Doe was one of four female homicide victims found in Allenstown, New Hampshire. She was the only adult victim.


The woman was found dismembered in a barrel with the oldest of the four children. The woman is believed to be the mother of the oldest and youngest child, based on recent DNA testing.

The father of the middle child has been identified as Robert "Bob" Evans, a convicted murderer and a suspected serial killer. He is considered a suspect in these murders. He died in 2010. In August 2017 "Robert Evans" had been identified as Terry Peder Rasmussen who left his family in Arizona around 1974 and was never seen again by his relatives.

It is theorized that her name may have been Elizabeth, since Rasmussen listed this name as his spouse's at the time of his arrest in 1980. The name may have been also of the middle child's unidentified and unrecovered mother or maybe none of these women- as it's possible that Evans lied about having a wife and "Elizabeth" had actually never existed.
