Tarzana Man Faces Murder Charges After Woman’s Torso Discovered in Trash Bin | NBC Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Police Department announced on Thursday that murder charges have been filed against the suspect in the case involving the discovery of a woman’s torso in a San Fernando Valley trash bin.

Samuel Haskell, a 35-year-old Los Angeles resident, is currently in custody with a $2,000,000 bail.

Following video evidence from the scene in Encino, law enforcement authorities were led to Tarzana, culminating in Haskell’s arrest at a mall in Topanga on suspicion of murder.

The shocking discovery occurred after an individual looking through dumpster bins in the vicinity of Ventura Boulevard and Rubio Avenue found a bag containing a woman’s torso around 6 a.m.

The investigation has also resulted in the search for three people connected to Haskell who are currently unaccounted for, including the suspect’s wife and her parents:

  • Mei Haskell;
  • Gaoshan Li, aged 72, who is 5-foot-6-inches tall and weighs approximately 140 pounds;
  • YanXiang Wang, aged 64, who is 5-foot-4-inches tall and weighs around 135 pounds.

The police confirmed that the three elementary-aged children living in the Clearstream home are safe and under the care of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.

Anyone with additional information is urged to contact the Los Angeles Police Department at (213) 486-6890.

Police are actively searching for a missing Tarzana mother and her parents after the woman’s husband was taken into custody in connection with the discovery of human remains in Encino. Alex Rozier reports for NBC4 News on this developing story.
