Here we cover it all.
Meet Howard Haysom, Elizabeth Haysom Brother
Elizabeth Haysom has five siblings from her parent’s previous marriage. From her mother’s previous marriage, she has two brothers named Howard Haysom and Richard Haysom.
After the harrowing incident, Howard spoke publicly about his family saying, “Mommy was a feisty woman, and Pop sort of modeled himself after [late UK Prime Minister, Winston] Churchill. So, if you can imagine a Churchill and a Lady Astor flashing, loving each other, and raising a family together, [that was us]. It was a wonderful family.”
In 1987, Howard testified that he was not satisfied with Elizabeth placing the blame on Jens, since he had learned from their mother that the two of them were scheduled to visit over the fateful weekend.
“She has lied to me in the past and frankly continues to lie,” Howard said. “I personally am not satisfied with the explanation that her guilty plea provided. I think Elizabeth was in the house at the time of the crime.”
He also testified that he believed that Elizabeth was there when her parents were murdered. Howard said his parents’ murderer, Jens Soering, “has turned himself into a cottage industry of falsehood, criminal celebrity and evil.”
Elizabeth Haysom, a former student, and her German boyfriend Jens Soering, served time in prison for her involvement in her parents’ deaths. She is one of the five children born to the late artist Nancy Astor Benedict Haysom and steel executive Derek William Reginald Haysom. In 1987, Haysom entered a guilty plea to two charges of accessory after the fact to murder.
During Soering’s trial, she provided testimony stating that she had tricked her ex-boyfriend into carrying out the murders because her parents had wanted them to break up. She was sentenced to 90 years in prison and completed 32 of those years at the Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women in Troy, Virginia, before being granted release in 2019.
Elizabeth received one 45-year sentence for each murder, to be served consecutively. The state of Virginia had rejected Elizabeth and her ex-boyfriend’s 14 parole requests previously. But, in 2019, they were granted parole conditional on their respective deportations to Canada and her ex to Germany.
