Who is Samuel Haskell Jr.?
The former successful Hollywood agent Samuel Haskell Sr. is the father of Samuel Haskell Jr. He is charged with murdering his in-laws and wife.
Among the victims of Samuel Haskell are Mei (37), the accused’s spouse, and her parents, Gaoshan Li (72) and YanXiang Wang (64). They were last seen on November 6 before being reported missing. On November 7, Haskell allegedly hired four laborers to transport a number of large, black trash bags.
“We could tell they weren’t rocks when we picked up the bags,” one employee said in a Spanish interview with the local NBC station, KNBC. To transport the bags 24 miles outside of downtown Los Angeles for disposal, the gang was paid $500.
Samuel Haskell was reportedly seen and photographed tossing a large trash bag into a dumpster in the 16000 block of Ventura Boulevard in the Encino area. He was arrested into prison on November 11, the day the torso was discovered. Authorities think Mei is the person who owns the found torso.
Detective Gutierrez said that when looking into the couple’s $2.5 million six-bedroom property, the LAPD discovered unsettling indications of a crime, including blood and unidentified objects.
There are rumors that Samuel Haskell has a violent criminal past. In 2008, he was arrested and accused of two charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, according to court records obtained by the Los Angeles Times. Haskell Jr. received a three-year probationary term after entering a not guilty plea to charges of assault.
Haskell is scheduled to be arraigned on December 8, 2023, and will be required to enter a plea to the charges pertaining to the current occurrence.
