Evidence From the Bear Brook Murders & Other Victims of "The Chameleon Killer"

These women were all victims of "The Chameleon Killer".

It's a story stranger than fiction — the remains of what appeared to be a mother and her young daughter were found in a barrel in Bear Brook State Park in New Hampshire in 1985. Then, 15 years later, in the exact same spot, another barrel with the remains of two more women were found. When the second barrel was found, investigators came to the conclusion that it was a mother and her three daughters. Missing persons reports were never filed so no one knew who these innocent victims were.

The police caught a break, in an unrelated case, and found the man that killed them: he was nicknamed "The Chameleon Killer" because of his multiple identities and multiple crimes spanning across decades. Upon further DNA testing, investigators realized that one of the girls was the killer's own daughter. While three of the victims have been identified, the killer's daughter's identity is still unknown. 


Additionally, "The Chameleon Killer" is suspected in other crimes were the women have been unidentified. 

Take a look at the photos of the victims and some evidence below.

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
