On November 16, the first respondents found a special education assistant in Vancouver, who was injured in a ditch after her SUV collapsed. It seemed that her 2017 year Kia Sorrento hit the lantern.
Haselman later died at the hospital and police initially believed she was simply thrown out of her vehicle during the accident.
But later, the inspectors say her wounds are "indicative of a foul." They have yet to discover the official cause of her death.
An enemy man was also found in the SUV and was pulled out by the first responsible persons. Authorities expect him to recover completely.
The murder team did not confirm whether the defendant was the man in the vehicle or was involved in the accident in any way.
On the eve of her death, Haselman's friends and colleagues said they remember her as a great mother and a good friend.
