A man is arrested in Haywood County for a murder that happened 22 years ago.
Michael Haim is accused of killing his wife, Bonnie, back in 1993 at their home in Jacksonville, Florida. The investigation into Bonnie Haim’s disappearance, a 23-year-old mother, began after a local resident found her purse in a dumpster on the northside of Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said.
Police questioned Bonnie’s husband, Michael Haim, 49, who told investigators he did not know where his wife was and that she’d left the night before her disappearance after an argument.
Deputies say skeletal remains were found last December after workers were digging out an old pool in the backyard of their former home in Florida.
The remains were just confirmed to be Bonnie.
On Aug. 21, an arrest warrant for Michael was obtained and was served by Haywood County Sheriff’s Office on Aug. 24.
Haim is currently in the Haywood County Detention Center on no bond, awaiting extradition to Florida.
