Salem woman believed to be strangled, fundraiser held for victim's daughter

Posted: Updated:

SALEM, Ohio - A testimony has revealed a Salem woman may have died by strangulation at the hands of her estranged boyfriend.

The coroner has yet to reveal the official cause of death for 32-year-old Samantha Shasteen, who was murdered in her Oak Street home last week.

On Thursday, as 34-year-old Mason Fiesel appeared in Columbiana County Municipal Court, detective Dave Talbert testified that he believes Shasteen was strangled.

The evidence was enough to send Fiesel's case to a grand jury for consideration.

Meanwhile, Shasteen's co-workers at Boardman's Clarencedale Cake were showing their love and support for the victim's four-year-old daughter by holding a fundraiser.

"People have come from as far away as almost two hours just to buy a few cupcakes for Lydia; to have the money and allow her grandparents to raise her and do the things her mom would want her to do," says Beth Sadlowski of Clarencedale Cake.

One hundred percent of the profits from today's sales at Clarencedale Cake are being donated to a fund for Shasteen's daughter.

The bakery sold out of all baked goods prepared for this event.
