A suspected serial killer tried to save his marriage by sending his estranged wife a letter confessing to murdering his then girlfriend in 2018.
Harold David Haulman, 43, who has been in a Pennsylvania jail since December after he was charged with the murder of Erica Shultz, 26, was also charged Friday with the murder of his former girlfriend Tianna Phillips.
Haulman, who is already a convicted killer and spent time in a German prison for murdering an American military doctor in 1999, is also a suspect in a Michigan homicide, Luzerne County Assistant District Attorney Dan Zola told DailyMail.com.
Ashley M. Parlier, a pregnant 21-year-old went missing from Battle Creek, Michigan in 2005.
Shultz’s ongoing murder investigation led district attorney investigators to Haulman’s estranged wife, Anne, who showed them a letter where he confessed to killing Phillips, Zola told DailyMail.com.

Haulman is a ‘person of interest’ in the presumed death of Ashley M. Parlier, a pregnant 21-year-old who went missing from Battle Creek, Michigan in 2005
The couple separated during summer 2020, but Haulman tried to reconcile with her a few months later by sending greeting cards and a confession letter.
He said he wrote to assure her that he would never hurt her.
In the letter, which is part of the criminal complaint, Houlman said he drove to Berwick, Pennsylvania on June 13, 2018 to get Phillips.
‘After walking into the woods, I pulled a knive (sic) from my pocket and attacked her from behind cutting her throat. As she gasped for her last breath of air I stabbed her repeatedly in the side of the neck, back and arms. I then returned to the crime scene months later and retrieved any and all evidence and disposed of it in a dumpster, not sure exactly where. I Harold David Haulman III committed this crime on my own and of my own free will.’
Police told the Daily Item that Haulman told his wife in 2018 that he killed Phillips and showed her pictures of a dead woman, but Anne told prosecutors that she didn’t believe him.
Then he forced her to go to the murder scene with him three months later, and he removed Phillips’ skull, clothing and ribcage from the area, she told prosecutors.
Zola said on Wednesday that they still haven’t found the alleged murder weapons or Phillips’ remains.
During an interrogation, Haulman asked if the cases of Shultz, Phillips and Parlier would be combined because he wasn’t interested in a trial, Zola said.
Zola said he contacted Calhoun County, Michigan prosecutors about Haulman’s statement.
Michigan Detective Dave Homminga said he plans to release more information about the Parlier case this week.
Like Phillips, Parlier’s remains have never been found.
