Bonnie Lynn Haim
Missing since January 6, 1993 from Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Bonnie Haim disappeared on January 6, 1993. Her purse was found in a trash container behind the Airport Red Roof Inn, still containing $150 cash, credit cards, checkbook and other personal items. Her car was found in the longterm parking lot at Jacksonville International Airport.
Bonnie was married to Michael Haim, with whom she had a young son. Michael worked as a manager at his aunt's construction supply company, while Bonnie worked with the business accounts in his aunt's office. Many of the people closest to Bonnie have stated that she planned to divorce Michael before her 1993 disappearance.
Bonnie returned to her family's residence on Dolphin Avenue in Jacksonville, Florida on January 6, 1993 at approximately 19:30. She was scheduled to meet Michael's aunt at her home at 20:00, but phoned her at 20:30 and said she would not be coming as planned. Bonnie has never been seen again.
Michael's aunt became concerned when neither he nor his wife arrived at work the following morning. Michael said that Bonnie had driven away after the couple had an argument the previous night. He said he did not know her whereabouts, but he had searched for her in vain. Michael claimed he was ill and that was the reason he did not report to work.
Bonnie's purse was discovered in a motel dumpster approximately five miles from her residence during the evening of January 7, the day after she was last seen. Authorities do not suspect that robbery was the motive for Bonnie's disappearance, as her wallet was intact with several hundred dollars, credit cards and checks. Bonnie's car was discovered abandoned in the longterm parking lot of Jacksonville International Airport shortly afterward.
Michael has maintained his innocence in his wife's disappearance from the case's onset. In 1999, Bonnie Haim was declared legally dead and the parental rights of Michael Haim were terminated.
While Haim was never charged with her murder, circumstantial evidence and the testimony of Haim's 3-year-old son, Aaron, was enough for a family court ruling in 2005 that Michael Haim killed his wife. He was ordered pay $26.3 million for wrongful death.
