Halderson told investigators his parents -- Bart and Krista Halderson, whom Chandler lives with -- left their Windsor house on the morning of Friday, July 2, to spend the holiday weekend at their White Lake cabin, according to the Dane County Sheriff’s Office. He said they left with an unknown couple.
Langdale County Sheriff’s deputies checked the White Lake property but found no one there and no sign of activity.
Investigators searched the Cottage Grove property, which belongs to Chandler's girlfriend’s mother’s partner, and found a torso wrapped in pants with a belt and a rope, the State Journal reports, and a pair of scissors and a saw blade were found nearby.
Chandler Halderson was then taken into custody and charged with providing false information in a missing-person investigation.
On Wednesday, July 14, investigators found more human remains near Sauk City, on Dept. of Natural Resources land, about 30 miles west of Windsor.
