Samuel Bond Haskell Jr., 35, a renowned Hollywood producer, is at the center of a shocking murder investigation.
Recently, US police discovered a dismembered bust of a woman, presumably his wife. The alleged killer, the son of a famous producer, has been arrested. The find was made by an ordinary person who was looking for a garbage container among the garbage, located about 8 kilometers from the suspect’s house in the elite area of Tarzana.
The couple has three children
According to CNN, although the woman's identity has not been confirmed, everyone is convinced that she is Haskell Jr.'s wife, 37-year-old Mae Haskell.
They have three children, aged 6, 8 and 12, who were found at school and taken away by social services. Mei's parents, 72-year-old Gaoshan Li and 64-year-old Yanxiang Wang, who lived in the same house, are missing.
Haskell Jr. is the son of Emmy Award-winning Hollywood producer Sam Haskell Sr. Haskell Sr. is president of Magnolia Hill Productions, the company behind Dolly Parton's recent projects, and has previously represented George Clooney, Whoopi Goldberg, Martin Short and Prince Edward, according to TMZ.
Who is Samuel Bond Haskell Jr.?
According to his IMDB page, Haskell Jr. has followed in his father's footsteps and works as a producer and director. But he never showed jealousy of his father's success.
Haskell Jr. was also at one point the CEO of the Miss America Pageant, but resigned in 2017 after several emails were discovered in which he made sexist and vulgar comments about contestants. Haskell Sr. was an agent for the William Morris Agency for 27 years.
He also produced Dolly Parton's show "Dolly Parton's Magical Christmas" and "Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors." Haskell Jr.'s mother, Mary Donnelly Haskell, is an actress and was Miss Mississippi in 1977. She has been married to Haskell Sr. since 1982 and has her second child with him.
Haskell Jr. has had trouble with the law before: in 2008, he was arrested on a charge of assault with a weapon and sentenced to three years of probation.
Investigators say blood was found in Haskell Jr.'s home. “Once officers entered the home, they found evidence of a crime, including blood stains, as well as other evidence that we will not discuss at this stage of the investigation,” Gutierrez said. .
