Human remains were found on Saturday at Seattle homeowner’s recycle bin, the body, it is believed to be from Ingrid Lyne, a woman who was last seen on Friday night before going on a date with someone she met online.
Lyne was reported as missing the following morning after she failed at collecting her three daughters from her ex-husband as she scheduled with him before.
John Robert Charlton, 37, from Snohomish County, was arrested due the connection he had with Lyne’s disappearance and was booked into King County Jail for investigation of homicide, where the evidence included telephone call records that helped the police identify him as the main and only suspect in the case.
The Seattle police said that three human parts that included a severed head and foot were found in the city’s Central District on Saturday. Seattle Police Chief Robert Merner stated that they used some forensic evidence dealing with those telephone calls, cell towers and the unusual “investigative shoe leather” that led to the suspect.

Also, investigators were able to locate Lyne’s silver 2015 Toyota Highlander SUV which was reported as stolen shortly after the disappearance, where the vehicle was later found in downtown Seattle.
What Happened That Day?
It was alleged that Lyne went on a date with Charlton to the Seattle Mariners baseball game on April 8th, and since the she is missing.
The remaining were packaged in plastic bags and were placed in the bin between late Friday and early Saturday, but how were the bins empty in such a short time? The police said that the bins might have been empty because the recyclables were collected on Fridays.
The Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole said on Monday that “The medical examiner must scientifically identify the victim, but we have no reason to believe there is any question of the victim’s identity. Charlton’s first appearance on the court will be this Tuesday.
