Rachael Garden 15 vanished from Newton,NH on March 22, 1980. One month April 26,1980 later another girl 14 year old Laureen Rahn vanished from Manchester,NH 34 miles away. A 26 year old woman named Denise Denault also vanished from the area during this time. No info is available in her case.
Rachael vanished after walking to a corner store to buy cigarettes. Where she was headed after that is unknown. It is only known that she never made it home that Sat. night or ever again. Very little was done to investigate her case as she was thought to have run away. Police still have no picture posted and fliers were ever made. http://www.seacoastonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071116/NEWS/711160415
Laureen Rahn's case was taken more seriously by the Manchester,NH police. Her case is still open in the cold case unit. Here is what is known. On the night she vanished Laureen had a girlfriend over while her mom was out and they drank. Her friend was sleeping in Laureen's bed when her mom came home. She thought it Laureen in the bed so a lot of time was lost. In Oct. her mom received a phone bill with calls in CA on it. One was from a hotel payphone in Santa Monica to a hotel in Santa Ana. There was also one to a sex abuse hotline. In 1985 an investigator found the Dr. from the hotline and he said his wife counseled runaway girls and one might have been from NH. At least one of the 2 hotels was known to have child porn produced in it.
Did the same person take both girls and put them in the sex trade? I think it's a good bet,but someone needs to actually investigate Rachael's case.
