(KFVS) - Investigators in New Hampshire are hoping that releasing new video and pictures will help them solve four decades-old murders.
The murder suspect may have a small tie to Missouri.
According to a release from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, a man named Bob Evans, who had many known aliases, was convicted of one murder and is suspected in four others.
The four unidentified victims were found in barrels at Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown, New Hampshire.
The first barrel was found in November 1985 and contained the bodies of an unidentified female, believed to be between 23-33 years old, and a female child, believed to be between the ages of 5-11.
An investigator who was taking a new look at the original two homicides found a second barrel at Bear Brook State Park in May 2000. That barrel contained the remains of two unidentified female children. Investigators believe one of the girls was between the ages of 2-4 while the second was likely between the ages of 1-3.
At some point during one of his interviews with police over the years, Evans claimed to have worked in St. Louis in the early 1970s.

- June 1986: Bob Evans abandoned Beaudin's daughter in California and took off
