SEATTLE (AP) — 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.

Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole said at a news conference Monday evening 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 worked 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 Friday night with someone she met online.

The King County Medical Examiner's Office will determine definitively whether the remains belong to Lyne.

Police arrested John Robert Charlton, 37, on Monday morning in Snohomish County, north of Seattle. He has 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 inside plastic bags.

Police say they were 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 license plates.
