Missing Denise Ann Daneault
Daneault, circa 1980; Terry Rasmussen, circa 1985; Rasmussen, circa 2002
Missing Since 06/08/1980
Manchester, New Hampshire
Classification Endangered Missing
Date of Birth Used 06/14/1954 (66)
Age 25 years old
Height and Weight 5'5 - 5'6, 135 pounds
Clothing/Jewelry Description A brown print skirt.
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Blonde/brown hair, brown/green eyes. Daneault's maiden name is Lavoie.
Details of Disappearance Daneault was last seen leaving a private social club in downtown Manchester, New Hampshire at 1:30 a.m. on June 8, 1980. She left the club, saying she was going to a party, and has never been heard from again. Few details are available in her case.
Daneault was divorced, with two young sons, at the time of her disappearance, and lived with a roommate in the 300 block of Hayward Street Street in Manchester. It's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning.
Daneault also lived just a few doors down from suspected serial killer Terry Peder Rasmussen, who was living in the area under the name "Bob Evans", one of his many false identities, at the time. Photos of Rasmussen as he appeared in 1985 and in 2002 are posted with this case summary. He pleaded guilty to murdering his wife in California in 2003, and died in 2010.
The third child, Rasmussen's daughter, is still unidentified. A sketch of the victim is posted with this case summary. She was about two to four years old, between 3'3 and 3'9 tall, with wavy brown hair and an overbite that may have been noticeable. She may have suffered from anemia. Isotope tests indicate she was probably born in a sparsely populated area of the interior western United States or one of the Plains States, and she is primarily of Caucasian ancestry but also has a small amount of Native American, African-American and Asian ancestry.
Rasmussen, and perhaps his unidentified daughter, had ties to the Navajo Nation and the area surrounding Black Mesa, Arizona. DNA evidence indicates the unidentified girl and her mother have relatives in Pearl River County, Mississippi. They may be descendants of Thomas "Deadhorse" Mitchell, born in 1836, or William Livings, born in 1826. The girl would have been the five times or six times great-grandchild of either of those men.
Investigators don't know whether Rasmussen was involved in Daneault's case, but are investigating a possible connection. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
