Man arrested after body parts found in his recycle bin

12 April 2016, 08:12

Seattle— Three body parts — including a foot — found in a homeowner's recycling bin likely belong to a woman who was reported missing Saturday morning, Seattle police said Monday.

Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole said at an evening news conference that an arrest had been made in the case and detectives believe the human remains are thoset of Ingrid Lyne, a 40-year-old mother of three who works as a nurse in Seattle.

"All evidence leads in the direction of that missing woman," O'Toole said.

Friends of Lyne said they last saw her Friday afternoon and that she had planned to go on a date to a Seattle Mariners baseball game Friday night with someone she met online.

The King County Medical Examiner's Office will make the final determination of identity.

Police arrested John Robert Charlton, 37, on Monday morning in Snohomish County, north of Seattle. He's been booked into jail on investigation of homicide. It wasn't immediately clear if Charlton had an attorney.

Police don't believe there are any other suspects, O'Toole said.

A homeowner in Seattle called police at 4 p.m. Saturday after discovering the body parts. Police say the body parts had been packaged in plastic bags and placed in the bin sometime late Friday or on Saturday. The bin had been emptied of recyclables Friday.

Police previously described the remains as fresh. They said they had searched other bins in the area and found nothing of note.

Police are still searching for Lyne's vehicle, a grey 2015 Toyota Highlander with Washington state license plates.
