Unidentified hitchhiker -
Bibb County residents were shocked to hear reports about a 14-17 year old Caucasian male hitchhiker who died in a crash when the vehicle he was being escorted in collided with the bridge rail and plunged into the Cahaba River near River Bend. The young boy drowned.
On his person besides the clothes he was wearing, was a Timex wrist watch, a carrying bag with several shirts and pants, a brown plastic wallet without any identification, and a pack of Pall Mall cigarettes with a South Carolina tax stamp.
The boy was 5’6” 120 lbs, with blue eyes and light brown hair. The boy had a tattoo which bared the inscription RY + LOVE. The autopsy revealed that the unknown boy might have walked with a slight limp.

Authorities believe unidentified Bear Brook victim has relatives from Mississippi
Police say genealogy research suggests mother of child has relatives in Pearl River County
Updated: 7:42 AM EST Jan 22, 2021
MANCHESTER, N.H. --
The search for the name of the remaining unidentified murder victim found in a barrel in Allenstown is leading authorities to Mississippi.
Investigators said genealogy research suggests the girl and her biological mother might have relatives in Pearl River County, which is not far from New Orleans.
The girl was found dead in a barrel along with the body of an adult woman in Bear Brook State Park in 2000. The bodies of two girls were found in a different barrel in the park 15 years earlier. They were all the victims of homicides, authorities said.
>> Case timeline
The other three victims were identified in 2019 as a mother and her two daughters from California.
DNA testing revealed that the unidentified child was not related to the three other victims but confirmed that suspected serial killer Terry Peder Rasmussen, who was known as “Bob Evans” during his time in New Hampshire, was her biological father.
To find out the girl’s identity, officials in New Hampshire have partnered with genetic genealogist Dr. Barbara Rae-Venter.
Louisiana State Police said the girl and her mother, who is also unidentified and is believed to be another Rasmussen victim, could be descendants of Thomas “Deadhorse” Mitchell, who was born in 1836, or William Livings, who was born in 1826. The girl would be the 5X- or 6X-great-grandchild of one of the men.
While it’s believed that the girl’s mother’s relatives are most likely from Pearl River County, no location is being ruled out, police said.
Authorities announced last February they learned the girl, who was estimated to be about 2 to 4 years old at the time of her death, was primarily Caucasian, with a small amount of Asian, Black and American Indian ancestry. Authorities believe she was born between 1975 and 1977.
The girl had slightly wavy brown hair and was between 3 feet, 3 inches and 3 feet, 9 inches tall. She had a slight overbite that might have been noticeable, authorities said.
Authorities said an analysis of her bones suggests she might have had anemia during her life, but the condition cannot be confirmed.
Police are encouraging people in the Pearl River County area to upload their DNA into GEDmatch or Family Tree DNA, if they are comfortable, to increase the likelihood that authorities are able to identify the girl and her mother.
Anyone who is aware of a missing child or a missing child and her mother from the late 1970s to early 1980s is asked to call New Hampshire State Police 603-MCU-TIPS or Sgt. Matthew Koehler of the New Hampshire State Police Major Crime Unit at 603-223-3648 or email@example.com

Previous case information is below:
The girl was one of four victims found in two barrels near Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown in 1985 and 2000. Three of them were identified last year as Marlyse Elizabeth Honeychurch and her two children, Marie Elizabeth Vaughn and Sarah Lynn McWaters. The unidentified girl isn't believed to be related to them.
The investigation suggests that the unidentified girl was not from New Hampshire, but most likely from Texas, Arizona, California or Oregon.
Through ongoing genealogy work, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children says the child is primarily Caucasian with a small amount of Asian, black and American Indian ancestry. She was 2 to 4 years old at the time of her death, placing her birthdate between 1975-1977. She had slightly wavy brown hair and stood as tall as 3 feet, 9 inches. She had a slight overbite.
Authorities believe Terry Peder Rasmussen was responsible for all four deaths and that the unidentified body is his daughter's. He went by many aliases, including "Bob Evans."
Rasmussen, who is suspected of killing at least six women and two children, died in a California prison in 2010.
Rasmussen claimed to spend substantial time in Texas during the early 1980s and may have known someone staying at an RV park in Austin during 1986. He claimed to have been employed at a company called Brown and Root in Houston during the 1970s.
Attempts to reach relatives of Rasmussen have been unsuccessful.
Please contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST if you have any information that could help identify this child.

June 2019: The photos below are of the murder victims as well as others. New Hampshire Police would like to know of anyone recognizes where they were taken.
"Now authorities are asking the public to look closely at the photos they released showing Marie Vaughn at her 7th or 8th birthday party. Believed to be in 1978 or 1979, the party could have been somewhere on the East Coast, perhaps even in New Hampshire."
It is unclear how this child is associated with the three related females but it’s estimated that they all died at the same time between 1978-1984. Advanced forensic testing reveals that this non-related child did not grow up in the same geographic area as other three victims. She likely was born and spent the majority of her childhood in a more northern and inland location such as northern New Hampshire, northern Vermont, upstate New York and further inland.
Based on isotope testing this little girl likely lived in the highlighted areas in the late 1970's.
Her mother could have been from an area where Terry was living under an alias (see graphic below timeline) and then moved with him giving birth in the destination area.
According to a June 2019 interview with Terry Rasmussen's daughter she had met the unidentified "Middle Child".
"While authorities have been unable to identify a fourth body found in the barrels, beyond figuring out that she was Rasmussen’s daughter, Stiers, the youngest of four children, said she and her siblings refer to their half sister as “Anita Moon.” She remembers meeting her; she doesn’t remember where. “I met her in somebody’s house,” she told the Union Leader. “She had pigtails on each side and they stuck straight out. … I remember her being cute and being shy. … She was adorable.”

Man suspected of beheading Washington woman found dead in California
POSTED 2:50 PM, APRIL 16, 2019, BY Q13 NEWS STAFF, UPDATED AT 03:16PM, APRIL 16, 2019
YUBA CITY, Calif. — A man suspected of using a samurai sword to kill his girlfriend in last year in Washington state was found dead in northern California.
According to the Island County Sheriff’s Office, a man’s body was pulled from the Feather River in Yuba City, California on April 7, 2018.
The body was classified as a “John Doe” until November when investigators shared photos of the man’s tattoos in hopes of identifying him.
Investigators with the Sutter County Sheriff’s Office received tips and this month were able to use DNA to positively identify the man as Jacob Gonzales.
Police in early March of 2018 found the body of 26-year-old Katherine Cunningham on an undeveloped piece of land near a gun- and ammo-filled bunker on Camano Island, Washington.
Authorities said a car belonging to Cunningham was found in northern California, also in early March. But police were not able to find him.
Island County Prosecutor Gregory Banks said a samurai sword was found in the vehicleand sent for testing at a lab.
“Those lab results indicate that Ms. Cunningham’s blood was on the blade of the sword, and Mr. Gonzales’ DNA was on the hilt,” he said.
Authorities had been seeking Gonzales since March on a warrant. He was previously charged with five counts of unlawful possession of a firearm and one count of motor vehicle theft.
According to court documents, Cunningham likely died in mid-February. Authorities said she might have been staying in a trailer on the property. Her body was found by a couple looking to buy the property.
The US Army Criminal Investigation Command is offering a $15,000 reward for information about a Jane Doe found in Training area 9 of Joint Base Lewis-McChord Washington 98433 (Pierce County).
On October 13, 2010, the skull of an adult female, approximately 25-40 years old, was
discovered in the vicinity of Spanaway McKenna Highway (WA 507) and Pacific Avenue
South (WA 7) inside of Training Area 9. After an extensive search of the area by CID and
other law enforcement agencies, only a skull and several vertebrae were recovered at the
scene. The rest of the victim’s remains have never been found.
CID wants to stress the most identifiable and notable feature that may lead to the identity of the deceased is a defect of unknown origin on the victim’s front tooth on the lower jaw (pictured above). Although important, the facial reconstruction pictured above is a recreation based on all available forensic evidence and may not be an exact likeness of the deceased. The victim’s race is still unknown at this time, and it is possible that the victim could have been of a mixed ancestry. The Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner estimates the victim to have died between April and June of 2010.
The testing revealed the victim may have spent her childhood/adolescence and the last ten years prior to her death in Oregon or California.
22nd Military Police Battalion (CID)
