Emma Cole was 3 years old at the time of her passing.
More than a year after the remains of a little girl were found on a Delaware softball field complex. A dog walker came across human remains near some batting cages on the Little Lass softball fields in Smyrna in September 2019. Police have now preliminarily identified those remains as Emma Cole, 3, the Smyrna Police announced Thursday.
Kristie Haas, 28, and Brandon Haas, 38, have been taken into custody in Pennsylvania. Police are calling the couple, who used to live in Smyrna, persons of interest in the case.
Court records obtained by Delaware News Journal reportedly show that Emma was Kristie’s daughter. It’s unclear if Brandon was her father. While charges against the couple are unclear at this point, a Pennsylvania judge has set their bond at $1 million. They are expected to be extradited back to Delaware in early November.
The couple had lived just over a mile away from the softball field when Cole’s remains were discovered. They were evicted from that home one month later, according to the Delaware News Journal. They filed for bankruptcy twice in 2019.
It’s not clear if the Haases have a lawyer who can speak on their behalf.
Police were called to Little Lass Fields which serve as softball fields for young girls in the neighborhood and across the road from a middle school, on Sept. 13, 2019, around 4:30 p.m. on Duck Creek Parkway, Delaware Online reported. Someone called the police when their dog retrieved a bone that resembled a human, ABC reported.
According to their Facebook pages, Brandon and Kristie Haas were married in May 2017. When Emma was discovered, the couple was living in a home on North New Street –– about a mile from the fields where she was found, according to records referenced by the outlet. The pair was later evicted from their single-story house in October 2019, according to court records.
