This individual was recently identified and some details may change as the investigation progresses.

Elizabeth Lamotte (July 27, 1967 - March 1985), was a teenager who was murdered in March 1985, and found on April 14, 1985. She was identified in 2018.

Disappearance

Elizabeth was last seen at a youth development center in Manchester, New Hampshire. She had planned to visit Gill Stadium in Manchester, but never returned.

Case

Elizabeth's naked body was found by southbound Jearoldstown exit I-81 by a teenager fishing. The body was found approximately 58 feet off the ramp.

Elizabeth had been beaten and stabbed. The medical examiner determined she had died from a blow to the head.

Elizabeth was in decomposition, and had died approximately three weeks prior, but her Fingerprints were obtainable. It is unknown why Elizabeth's tattoo which read, "Hell, Death" was not noted by the medical examiner, but most likely due to decomposition.

Isotope testing revealed Elizabeth was not local but had likely been born in the Eastern United States, and had resided in the Midwest and Southwest prior to her death.

Ties to Terrence Rasmussen

Elizabeth was originally believed to be one of Terrence Rasmussen's victims due to the fact she disappeared around the time he was known to kill people in Manchester.

Elizabeth was also believed to be Elizabeth Evans, the unidentified woman Rasmussen was once seen with, but was eventually eliminated as a possible identity.

Furthermore, Elizabeth was even considered to be one of the Allenstown four, but was logistically ruled out after identification.

Identification

Elizabeth was not reported missing to Manchester police until 2017. Eventually, Elizabeth's information was entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).

On November 13, 2018 the UNT Center for Human Identification found a match between her brothers' DNA and the Mitochondrial DNA of Elizabeth's remains. Elizabeth's identity was released a day later.

Theories
