SEATTLE - More human remains were discovered in the area where the body parts of a murdered Washington woman were found last week.

Last week, Seattle police say three adult body parts — including a foot, a human head, and an arm — were found in a homeowner's recycling bin in Seattle.  

Investigators later identified the remains as being those of missing mother of three, Ingrid Lyne.

Detectives believe the body parts had been packaged and placed in the bin.

On Friday, April 15th, police officers say more human remains were found in the same area.

Although police officers have not confirmed if the newly discovered remains are those of Lyne, they have said they are investigating the "probable connection," KCPQ reports.


Authorities believe 37-year-old John Robert Charlton, a man Lyne had met online and had been dating since last month, dismembered the Washington woman before driving several of her body parts to Seattle, and put them in a recycling bin.

Charlton was charged with first-degree murder on Wednesday and remains in jail on a $2 million bail, KCPQ reports.
