More than two decades after her disappearance, a possible breakthrough in the mystery of what happened to Bonnie Haim after possible human remains were found behind the house where Haim and her husband used to live.
Local authorities will continue sift through the dirt in the backyard of a home on the Northside after construction workers on Sunday afternoon discovered what appeared to be a skull at a home where a woman who disappeared 21 years ago lived.
According to news report, the house was once the home of Bonnie Haim, a 23-year-old mother last seen on Jan. 7, 1993. Police would not confirm if it was the former Haim home, but the Duval County Property Appraiser’s website shows it was owned by her husband, Michael Haim.
According to the Duval County property appraiser, Haim’s husband, Michael, bought the home in question back in 1988.
But police say Michael Haim is no longer the owner.
Michael Haim has maintained his innocence. In September 2004, he was found liable for Bonnie’s death in a civil suit and he was ordered to pay $15.3 million to the couple’s son, Aaron, who was 3 years old at the time, and $1 million to Bonnie Haim’s estate. Michael did not appear in court to defend himself against the lawsuit. He also lost custody of Aaron in 1999.
