Not long after being reported missing, Bart Halderson’s remains were found on private property in Cottage Grove.
According to a criminal complaint, the property in Cottage Grove belongs to Chandler’s girlfriend’s mother’s girlfriend. Chandler allegedly went to her property and asked to use her pool, but she reportedly noticed he was not wet and the pool cover was still on an hour later. When investigators searched the Cottage Grove property, detectives found a "mound" that looked "not natural to the landscape."
Upon further investigation, detectives reportedly found a human torso wrapped in gray cargo pants, a black belt with a nylon rope around the waist, and extra rope. The torso reportedly was Bart’s and the autopsy report revealed there was a firearm injury to the abdomen, back, and neck.
