At the time of Breed’s death, police was looking for the previous MLB gamer. His car was found vacant on Saturday afternoon, and hours later on, he was discovered dead.
On Saturday night, the Scottsdale Police Department tweeted, “This was a domestic violence situation. The suspect was located in Northern Arizona this afternoon and took his own life.”
Before discovering Haeger’s death, the Chicago Cubs released a declaration relating to Breed.
“First, we would like to express our condolences to the family of Danielle Breed,” Cubs vice president of interactions, Julian Green, stated in a declaration to The Athletic. “Our hearts and prayers go out to her family, friends and loved ones during this difficult time.”
“Charles Haeger was hired by the Chicago Cubs organization as a minor league pitching coach in November 2019. Haeger initially attended Spring Training activities, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic which suspended operations and forced the cancellation of the 2020 Minor League season, his role and team interactions have been limited,” the declaration continued. “Given this is an active investigation, we are assisting the Scottsdale Police Department and will not make any further comment.”
