The couple resided in a six-bedroom Tarzana home with their three children and Mei’s parents, Gaoshan Li (72) and YanXiang Wang (64), who have also been officially reported missing.

Authorities investigating the Haskell residence have reportedly uncovered blood and other evidence indicative of a violent incident and dismemberment.

LAPD Revealed 

LAPD Detective Efren Gutierrez informed reporters on November 8 that attempts to contact Mei’s parents have been unsuccessful.


Gutierrez stated, “They would normally be home in these hours, and attempts have been made to contact them by phone, by cellphone, and no answer. And the same with Mei. She is unaccounted for.”

Investigation is Still On

Police Captain Scot Williams of the Robbery-Homicide Division revealed that the investigation is ongoing, with detectives actively pursuing leads and witnesses.


Court records indicate that Samuel Haskell faced previous legal issues, having been arrested and charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon in December 2008. In 2010, he pleaded no contest to battery and was placed on three years probation.

Samuel is the son of Sam Haskell III, the former executive vice president and worldwide head of television for the William Morris Agency, who resigned as CEO of the Miss America organization in 2017 due to an email scandal.

Speaking to KTLA, Mei Haskell’s neighbor and close friend, Elle Benami, noted that the couple did not outwardly display warmth or affection but did not mention any known issues.


Benami, who last saw Mei a week before her disappearance, described Mei as dedicated to her children, emphasizing that they were her entire life.

Following the disturbing discovery, the children have been removed from their schools and are currently staying with relatives. As of now, the investigation is still on and authorities are looking into the matter.
