BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — A man has been extradited to Michigan from Pennsylvania to face charges for the murder of a woman who went missing from Battle Creek in 2005.
Harold David Haulman III was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Ashley Marie Parlier, who went missing from her Battle Creek home on June 12, 2005.
Parlier’s family said she stormed off from their residence after an argument with her parents. After a week, she had still not returned and her parents reported her missing. Parlier was not seen since.
A district attorney in central Pennsylvania has accused Haulman of being a serial killer. Authorities there say he confessed to murdering two women — Tianna Phillips in 2018 and Erica Schultz in 2020.
Police say while they interviewed Haulman last winter about those cases, he also confessed to the 2005 killing of Ashley Parlier in Calhoun County.
Haulman told detectives where Parlier’s body might be. That led to detectives to Calhoun County where they performed a search for Parlier near some woods south of Battle Creek in March of 2021. They did not find her.
Haulman also served time in Germany in connection to a death in 1999. For the last year, he was finishing proceedings from the two Pennsylvania murders.
At the Wednesday arraignment, judge denied Haulman bond, saying that “proof is evident.”
Haulman will be transferred back to prison in Pennsylvania to serve out his sentences. He is scheduled for a preliminary exam conference for Michigan at the end of December.
