Charges: Itasca County homicide victim was beheaded, stabbed


A 20-year-old Hibbing man was beaten, stabbed and beheaded by an acquaintance — apparently in retribution for an alleged sexual assault — according to charges filed Wednesday.

The body of David Alexander Haiman was recovered from a wooded area in the Itasca County community of Ball Club, northwest of Grand Rapids, on Sunday.

Witnesses allegedly told authorities that 35-year-old Joseph Christen Thoresen struck Haiman with a baseball bat, stabbed him in the lungs with a machete and beheaded him after learning that Haiman allegedly raped his girlfriend.
