Man ar­rested af­ter grisly find in bin

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Three body parts - in­clud­ing a foot - found in a home­owner’s re­cy­cling bin likely be­long to a woman who was re­ported miss­ing on Satur­day morn­ing, po­lice in the US said.

Seat­tle Po­lice Chief Kath­leen O’Toole said at a news con­fer­ence that an ar­rest had been made in the case and de­tec­tives be­lieve the hu­man re­mains are that 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 Mariners base­ball game on 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 a lawyer.

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

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

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