His unoccupied vehicle was found on Saturday near Flagstaff, Arizona. By vehicle, the Grand Canyon is approximately an hour and 20 minutes from Flagstaff.

The authorities will investigate how he made his way to the Grand Canyon National Park. Google Maps indicated that it would have taken Haeger a day to get the 73 miles from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon National Park.

It was likely that he took some type of transportation to get there. The authorities will investigate it.

The investigation into Breed’s death is ongoing as well. There was a national manhunt for Haeger after news broke on Saturday that he was a wanted man.

He allegedly killed Breed on Friday night. Breed’s male roommate heard gunshots from Breed’s room at the residence that they shared.

The owner of The Tipsy Coyote Bar and Grill was dead at the scene. The roommate called the authorities and they arrived at the scene.

The SWAT team was also called. However, Haeger has already escaped before the SWAT team entered.

“Haeger then pointed the handgun at the roommate,” Scottsdale Police Department Sgt. Ben Hoster said in a statement. “The roommate quickly escaped out of the back of the residence, and he was able to get a neighbor to call 911.”
