Arrest made in Salem homicide

Posted: Updated:

SALEM, Ohio - Police in Salem have made an arrest in the murder of Samantha Shasteen, who died early Wednesday.

Det. Dave Talbert posted on the City of Salem Police Department Facebook page that Mason M. Feisel of Boardman has been arrested for the death of his estranged girlfriend Samantha Shasteen.

Feisel was taken into custody following his discharge from Salem Community Hospital.

He was then transported to the Columbiana County Jail without bond.

21 News was first on the scene after police responded to a 911 call to 2107 Oak St. at 7:35 a.m. after a man found his daughter dead inside the house.

Devin Bennett, co-owner of Clarencedale Cakes, tells 21 News the victim, Samantha Shasteen, was an employee of the Boardman bakery.

It's not immediately clear how the female was killed, but police were marking shell casings at the scene.

The victim's father told police that when he got to the house, a man in black shorts was standing in the garage and took off running.

After searching the neighborhood, they located Mason Feisel hiding in a flower bush two doors down covered in blood.

The Columbiana prosecutor's office, Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Columbiana sheriff's department are assisting Salem police in the investigation, along with the Boardman police department.

Bennett describes Shasteen as a consciences employee who would call or text at 4 a.m. if she couldn't make it to work.

"This morning when we didn't get that text from her and she wasn't here, we got very concerned," he says.

Bennett alerted Boardman and Salem police at that time that something may be wrong.

Later, Shasteen's father called the bakery and told them she had died.

Bennett says she has become a dear friend and family member of the Clarencedale family since she began working there over three years ago.
