Facebook/Luzerne County SheriffA hospital bed confession from a man charged with killing two Pennsylvania women has led investigators to call him a person of interest in a third case: the disappearance of a young woman in Michigan in 2005.And now, a prosecutor says the trail of death linked to Harold Haulman may lead overseas.Haulman is currently incarcerated, having confessed to the brutal murders of two young women in 2018 and 2020. During an interrogation in early January, he mentioned a new name, Ashley Parlier, and indicated that he knows where her body is, authorities said.Investigators in Michigan are now dusting off the cold case of the 21-year-old who vanished after storming out of her home during an argument with her parents over an apparent pregnancy.Haulman first came to the attention of law enforcement in 2020, after Erica Shultz’ sister reported her missing, according to court records obtained by the Times Leader. FBI investigators used cellphone records and a dating website where Haulman and Shultz had met to show that Haulman had turned up unexpectedly on the 26-year-old’s doorstep and then convinced her to go on a walk in the woods. The last messages sent from his phone to hers, District Attorney Stephanie Salavantis said at a December 2020 press conference, were “surprise” and “knock-knock.”After the FBI zeroed in on Haulman, he began acting erratically—skipping out on an FBI interview and then resurfacing days later, when he tried to kill himself with a box cutter on a railroad track. As investigators interviewed Haulman in his hospital room, he allegedly confessed to killing Shultz with a mallet and a knife, and then used Google Maps to show investigators where he had left her body, the Daily Item reported.Authorities say Haulman also confessed to the killing of another woman, 25-year-old Tianna Philips, who had been missing since 2018. According to court records obtained by the Times Leader, when investigators interviewed his wife, Anne Haulman, she told law enforcement officers that Haulman confessed to her about Philips’ murder—and even drove her to the area where he said Philips’ body was hidden and showed her a black garbage bag filled with human remains. The couple later disposed of the body in a dumpster in a nearby theater, police say.In the interview in early January, Haulman made a spontaneous reference to Parlier, asking if the charge for her murder would be combined with Philips and Shultz’s, as he wanted to avoid a trial.Parlier’s sister, Nicole Campen, told WNEP that her sister went missing after storming out of the house following an argument with their parents, who had noticed she looked pregnant. While Camden says she doesn’t know if her sister knew Haulman, police say he lived in the same county as Parlier’s family from 2002 to 2005.There are also marked similarities between Parlier and Shultz. A Facebook post from a desperate family member describes Shultz as a low-functioning person on the autism spectrum who wasn’t able to drive. According to Parlier’s sister, Parlier had the mental function of about a 12- to 14-year-old. “If you were nice to her, she just assumed you were a nice person,” said Camden. “She didn’t really get that there could be evil.”Luzerne County Deputy District Attorney Dan Zola said there may be other victims as far away as Europe. According to the Daily Item, Zola said Haulman was convicted of a murder in Germany in the ’90s. “If these situations don’t match the definition of what a serial killer is, then nothing does,” the prosecutor said.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

The government was not as prepared for the pandemic as it could have been, according to its own spending watchdog. A report by the National Audit Office (NAO) found officials "lacked detailed contingency plans to manage the unfolding situation" when it began early last year. The prime minister last week announced a public inquiry into the government's handling of the pandemic, an outcome that bereaved families and opposition MPs have been demanding for months.

Residents of more than two-dozen RVs and campers parked illegally near a Vancouver intersection have been told to leave or face fines and have their vehicles towed. The makeshift camp near Slocan Street and East 12th Avenue currently houses at least 25 vehicles with people living inside. It's been there for about two years. City officials say staff, including bylaw enforcement officers, have visited the site at least four times since the start of the year and warned them of an impending eviction. In the most recent notice, residents were told they must leave by May 26. On Tuesday, residents spoke out against the city's plan, saying they have nowhere else to go. "I don't consider myself homeless. I have a home ... I just don't have an address," said Connolly Watson, who has lived in his RV for five years. He says the accommodations are the only way many people are able to afford living in the city. Connolly Watson has lived in an RV for years, including at the encampment near Slocan and 12th Avenue. He says the city's policy on large vehicle parking unfairly targets those who cannot afford rental housing.(Jon Hernandez/CBC) "It's wrong to turn us into criminals because we like living in an RV, a van, camper, car, trailer, whatever you want to call it," he added. Parking on city streets for more than three hours at a time contravenes local bylaws, and no large vehicles like RVs are allowed to park overnight. City cites safety concerns Taryn Scollard, Vancouver's director of streets, said the city has been grappling with RVs cropping up in different neighbourhoods for years. She said the encampment near Slocan and 12th has become particularly problematic because of its size, hygiene and proximity to a public school, noting that many of the campers are uninsured and not in drivable condition. "We're seeing a lot of increased concerns in the area as the number of RVs increase," said Scollard. "Some of them are leaving debris on the streets. We've encountered human excrement." An RV parked outside a Lowes store in East Vancouver is one of more than two dozen in the area.(Jon Hernandez/CBC) Scollard says parents have also reported interactions between campers and children to both the city and to the VPD. "We would be looking for people to move in the next week or two before we start actual tickets and towing," she said. The city says its offering free towing for residents who are able to provide a location where they can park their vehicle legally. Campers plan to hold a rally on eviction day, protesting the order to leave.(Jon Hernandez/CBC) Other camps targeted The encampment on Slocan isn't the only one in the city's crosshairs. Officials say they are also clamping down on other locations, although not all of them will be on the same timeline. Scollard says people who cannot find a place to go can have their vehicles stored for 30 days as they attempt to find accommodation. Advocate Listen Chen says the municipality's offers provide little support for people living in vehicles. "If the city wants to displace people, they need to work with other levels of government to build the quality of social housing, [that is] affordable at shelter and welfare rates so that everybody has the option of living in a safe, secure indoor space," she said. Campers plan to hold a rally on eviction day, protesting the order to leave.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Mike Zunino hit two home runs and the Tampa Bay Rays connected five times in all, hammering the Baltimore Orioles 13-6 Tuesday night for their fifth straight win. Brett Phillips and Austin Meadows hit three-run homers in the second inning and Ji-Man Choi hit a late drive as the Rays matched their longest winning streak of the year. Tampa Bay is a season-high five games over .500 at 24-19. Baltimore has lost eight of its last 10 and fell to a majors-worst 6-16 at home. It was the first of 19 meetings this season between the AL East rivals, all crammed between May 18 and Aug. 29. The Rays tagged Matt Harvey (3-4) in the second. They opened the inning with consecutive singles, and an out later Phillips hit Harvey's fastball to right for his second homer. Tampa Bay’s Willy Adames poked a double off the third base bag, and Randy Arozarena reached on an infield single before Meadows drilled his ninth homer of the season to make it 6-0. Harvey yielded six runs on seven hits in 1 2/3 innings. It was Harvey’s shortest start since a 1 1/3-inning outing against the Chicago White Sox on Sept. 6 while pitching for Kansas City and the second shortest of his 153 career starts. Zunino hit two-run shots in both the third and fifth innings for his eighth career multihomer game and first since Aug. 8, 2018. Choi added a two-run homer in the eighth, his first of the year after spending the first 40 games of the season on the injured list recovering from knee surgery. Tampa Bay starter Luis Patiño was chased in the middle of Baltimore’s three-run fourth. He went 3 1/3 innings, yielding four runs on six hits while striking out six. Andrew Kittredge (4-0) pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings in relief for the Rays. Baltimore’s Cedric Mullins extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a third-inning single. TRAINER’S ROOM Rays: OF Kevin Kiermaier (left wrist sprain) took part in a full workout Tuesday. Manager Kevin Cash said Kiermaier, who is eligible to be activated Wednesday, will not need a rehabilitation assignment. “He’s very, very close,” Cash said. … RHP Michael Wacha (right hamstring tightness) will throw a simulated game Wednesday. … Cash said RHP Chris Mazza (shoulder inflammation) will pitch or throw a simulated game with Triple-A Durham this week. … LHP Cody Reed left with an undisclosed injury after walking consecutive hitters in the eighth. MOVES Tampa Bay acquired RHP Sean Poppen from Pittsburgh for cash considerations and assigned him to Durham. … Baltimore selected the contract of INF/OF Stevie Wilkerson from Triple-A Norfolk and designated INF Rio Ruiz for assignment. Ruiz hit .167 with three homers and six RBIs while splitting time between time between second and third base. UP NEXT Rays: Tampa Bay will use an opener or give LHP Ryan Yarbrough (2-3, 4.20 ERA) the start on Wednesday as the series continues. Yarbrough is 3-1 with a 3.24 ERA in eight career appearances against Baltimore. Orioles: LHP John Means (4-0, 1.21) has pitched 15 scoreless innings with 15 strikeouts and no walks over his last two starts. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Patrick Stevens, The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Pinch-hitter Ronald Torreyes delivered a tiebreaking, two-run double in the eighth inning and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied to beat the Miami Marlins 8-3 on Tuesday night. In the Phillies' first game since a dugout spat between manager Joe Girardi and infielder Jean Segura, the Marlins took a 3-1 lead when Jazz Chisholm Jr. hit a two-run homer off a 100 mph fastball from Jose Alvarado in the top of the eighth. But the Phillies answered in the bottom half against relievers Dylan Floro (2-2) and John Curtiss. Rhys Hoskins hit a sharp single with one out and Alec Bohm followed with an RBI double off the right-field fence. Odubel Herrera reached on an infield single and Andrew Knapp walked to load the bases. Nick Maton lined an RBI single to tie it. Curtiss entered and Torreyes lined the first pitch down the left-field line in his first at-bat since April 17. Segura’s infield single knocked in another run. Bryce Harper ripped a two-run single to cap the seven-run rally. Phillies starter Zack Wheeler struck out 10, allowing one unearned run and five hits in seven innings. Wheeler reached double digits in strikeouts for the 10th time in his career and second this season. Archie Bradley (1-1) fanned the only batter he faced to earn the win in his first appearance since April 10. Marlins starter Cody Poteet tossed five innings of three-hit ball in his second career start but Miami’s bullpen gave up eight runs in three innings. Before the game, Girardi and Segura both said they love each other and were eager to put their recent argument on the bench in the past. FANS GONE WILD A fan jumped onto the field from the left-field stands in the top of the eighth, sprinted across the outfield and climbed into the seats down the right-field line before security got him. Another guy ran onto the field in the bottom half of the inning. He tagged second base, eluded a security guard, stumbled and got tackled. TRAINER’S ROOM Marlins: OF Lewis Brinson (left finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Nolan Arenado hit a two-run homer, his fourth in four games, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 Tuesday night. Tommy Edman added three singles and drove in two runs for St. Louis. The Cardinals returned home after dropping three straight at the Padres to win their fourth consecutive game this season against Pittsburgh. Arenado hit his 10th homer in the first inning.

SUNRISE, Fla. — Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 32 shots, Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Palat had first-period goals and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Florida Panthers 3-1 on Tuesday night to take a 2-0 lead in their Central Division first-round playoff series. It's the seventh time that the Lightning have won the first two games a series, the third time doing so on the road. They've never lost one of those matchups, and will look to put Florida on the brink of elimination when the series shifts to Tampa on Thursday night. Yanni Gourde added an empty-netter off a giveaway with 1:25 remaining for the Lightning. Mason Marchment had the goal for Florida, which dropped consecutive games on home ice for only the second time this season. The Panthers have never won a series after dropping the first two games, falling on three previous occasions — and now need to win four out of five against the reigning Stanley Cup champions if this will be the season in which it ends a 25-year postseason series win drought. Florida went with Chris Driedger in net after playing Sergei Bobrovsky in Sunday’s series-opening 5-4 loss. Driedger, on his 27th birthday and appearing in his first postseason game since 2014 when he was in major junior hockey, playing for the Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League. He stopped 26 shots, getting pulled with about 2 minutes remaining. The Lightning are 28-0-0 this season — including both games of this series — when leading after two periods, and have won 41 such games going back to last season and their run to the Stanley Cup. A couple of bounces — one off a Panther, the other off a post — staked Tampa Bay to a 2-0 lead in the opening period. Stamkos, who missed the final 16 games of the regular season, got his third point of the series and first goal since April 8 when he was credited with the opening score. Tampa Bay broke out on a play where Florida’s Markus Nutivaara fell down, and Stamkos wound up being part of a 2-on-1 in front of the Panthers net. Alex Killorn fed a pass across the slot to Stamkos, Driedger slid to his right, and Stamkos tried to send the puck back to Killorn. It never got there, nor did it have to; sliding Florida defenseman Anton Stralman deflected the puck into the net for a 1-0 Lightning lead. Palat made it 2-0 later in the first, the lucky recipient of a puck that just happened to come his way. Brayden Point tried to beat Driedger over the left shoulder; his shot hit the post and caromed to Palat, who had open twine to shoot at for the second goal. Marchment got free in the slot and tipped home a pass from Carter Verhaeghe to get Florida on the board with 5:39 left in the second. But the Panthers never got the equalizer, and Gourde's easy one sealed matters for the Lightning. COACH FLO Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores has been to a few games this season and helped the Panthers out a couple ways Tuesday night, first by taping a pregame hype video for the crowd and then by waving a rally towel as fans roared in the second period. Marchment’s goal came about 3 minutes later. LOOKING AHEAD Tampa Bay was 21-7-0 at home this season, but Florida was the only team to beat the Lightning twice in their rink. NO BENNETT Florida played without Sam Bennett, suspended for Game 2 by the NHL because of his boarding penalty against Tampa Bay’s Blake Coleman on Sunday night. PANTHERS’ WOES It was the 50th playoff game in Florida’s franchise history. The Panthers went 9-3 in their first 12 postseason contests. They’re 10-28 since. ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Tim Reynolds, The Associated Press
