KIMBERLY ANNE HAGGER SCARAMASTRO GUGLIELMO

Updated October 28, 2004

About Our Family Research


Kimberly Anne Hagger was a USA citizen who was born at Aransas Pass, Texas on June 29, 1973, and registered as a citizen of the UK by her birth father Mervyn Osborne Hagger, a British citizen of Hucclecote, Gloucester, England. Kimberly Anne died under tragic circumstances at South Daytona, Florida on May 10, 1994. Her birth father learned of his daughter's death many years later in July 2001, as a result of reading a newspaper obituary published on the Internet recording the death of her birth mother Kimberly Hoskins in August 2000.

Hagger and Hoskins were married on June 18, 1972 and divorced on October 18, 1977. Hoskins subsequently married Julio Bruce Scaramastro and Kimberly Anne Hagger was adopted in Illinois during 1983 without proper notification to Mervyn Osborne Hagger. The Scaramastro family then moved to California.

However, another member of the extended Hoskins family has caused a false record of the life and death of Kimberly Anne to be incorporated into their genealogy as "Kimberly Ann Haggar Scaramastro" (sic). Please note the variation in spelling of "Ann" and "Haggar", and observe that the incorrect family tree states that Kimberly Anne died in California as a member of the Scaramastro family. This completely inaccurate record is a part of "World Family Tree 2413, Volume 6.

The factual record shows that Kimberly Anne married Mark Anthony Alexander Guglielmo in the state of New York in 1992. The couple then moved to Florida where she died when a hatchet was plunged into her head by the hand of her husband on May 10, 1994. Her death was properly recorded at the time under the name of Kimberly Anne Guglielmo. He is now serving a 40 years prison sentence in Florida as a result of a 2nd Degree Murder Plea Agreement. There was no trial.

After killing Kimberly Anne in what appears to have been a crime of passion arising out of a crisis involving a miscarriage, her husband transported her corpse to the state of Connecticut. Her husband alleges that Herman J. Steger of Connecticut then took the corpse and caused it to be separated into two sections, packed the lower torso into a suitcase and placed into the Hudson River near Tarrytown, New York. The head and upper torso were then packed into another suitcase and placed in woods near Bedford, New York, which was about 20 miles away from the lower section.

Following misdeeds by the prosecutor in Florida the corpse was rushed to cremation by the New York Medical Examiner without allowing the defense request for a second examination. The ashes were then shipped to an aunt at Mathis, Texas for disposal.

The correct record of the life and death of Kimberly Anne is being established here and on the site listed above using court records and private research. Her genealogy is being recorded with the tremendous help of Martin and Mike Hagger in the United Kingdom. See the link below.

An investigation into the life and death of Kimberly Anne is currently ongoing by her birth father Mervyn Osborne Hagger, due to the incomplete, misleading and in many ways totally false record that was published by the press following her murder in 1994.

The death of Kimberly Anne on May 10 is shrouded in mystery and the disposal of her corpse is mired in a very strange story.

After the death of Kimberly Anne her husband attempted to give the corpse of his wife his version of a "neo-Viking send-off" near Valhalla, New York when he claims that he handed her corpse to Herman J. Steger. After this, her husband took artifacts belonging to Kimberly Anne on a long car drive to Halifax, Nova Scotia. On the shore of the Atlantic where he believed that the ancient Vikings had once landed, he buried a mock helmet and longsword with the name "Hagger" inscribed upon it, someone along the rocks near Peggy's Cove.
