Seattle sanitation workers found human remains, which police believe belong to a mother who was killed in her home in April 2016.
Forty-year-old mother of three Ingrid Lyne's remains were found in a recycling bin on April 9, the day she was reported missing after not returning home from a date with a man she met online, as previously reported by Opposing Views. Her severed head and foot were found in the recycling bin.
On April 15, sanitation workers found more human remains in a garbage can at a downtown Seattle home near where the other body parts were found, according to NBC News.
According to detective Mark Jamieson, the department is "confident that it is connected to last week's homicide investigation, which was only three blocks" from where the other remains were found.
John Charlton, 37, has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with Lyne's death.
Charlton and Lyne had reportedly been dating for roughly a month after meeting online. The two met for a date at a baseball game on April 8, after which authorities say he killed her in her home, dismembered her body and drove them from suburban Renton to downtown Seattle to hide in waste bins.
Charlton claims when the two returned from the game, he was so intoxicated that he could not remember what happened.
Lyne was reported missing the next morning by her ex-husband when she failed to pick up their children from his house. Her ex-husband drove to her house to find her, but she was not there.
Charlton is being held in jail on $2 million bail. He faces at least 28 years in prison if convicted for the murder, NBC News reports.
