If you or your family lived in Allenstown back in the day and would like to be added to a private Facebook group of people discussing this case, please friend JaneDoe Allenstown and private message us that you would like to be added to the BBG group. 




In 1985, a hunter found the remains of a woman and a girl in a plastic bag near a 55 gallon barrel in Allenstown, NH. They were found on private property behind Bear Brook Gardens Mobile Home Park and near a trail that winds through Bear Brook State Park. In 2000, the remains of two more girls were found in a barrel nearby. The woman is related biologically only to the oldest and youngest of the children. It is unknown if the 3-4 yr old is related paternally to the other children. It is believed that they were killed between 1980 and 1984.

 
 
Their identities remain unknown and as the years pass, the mystery grows.  Who are they and why has no one come forward to claim them?


 
They have a donated headstone in a local cemetery but they cannot be buried as their remains continue to be studied for clues to their identity.
                              

Someone out there knows what happened to this family and has been keeping a terrible secret. You can't turn back time and change what happened, but it's not too late to do the right thing.

Please post their names and let them rest in peace
