RENTON, Wash. -

Police are investigating body parts found Friday by a garbage collector in Seattle's central district and they believe they may be related to the murder of Ingrid Lynethe mother of three from Renton, WA who was brutally murdered and dismembered after going on a date to the Seattle Mariner's home opener game with John Robert Charlton, whom she met online.

The remains found Friday were located just two blocks away from where a homeowner first discovered parts of Lyne's body on Saturday, April 9th in a recycling bin. 

According to Allison Grande with KIRO 7 News who is reporting from the crime scene, other garbage truck drivers are bringing their trucks to the scene in case they need to be searched as well. 


PREVIOUS COVERAGE: 
Authorities say a man dismembered a mother of three in her suburban home then drove her head and other remains to Seattle, where they were found in garbage bags in a recycling bin.
    
The disclosure Tuesday came as a King County judge ordered the suspect in the case, John Robert Charlton, held on $2 million bail. Prosecutors said he could face a second-degree murder charge.

Charlton was arrested Monday after police said remains believed to be those of 40-year-old Ingrid Lyne of Renton were found over the weekend in a homeowner's recycling bin.

According to court documents, Charlton told police he was so drunk, he blacked out after a date with Lyne on Friday night. He woke up on a sidewalk, unsure how he got there and he says he doesn't remember anything. 

Police say when they searched Lyne's home, they found traces of blood, a 15-inch saw in the bathroom and a box of plastic garbage bags identical to the bags in which the body parts were found. 
    
Charlton has a criminal history and his parents had sought a restraining order against him in 2006. His next court date is scheduled for Thursday, April 14th which is also the deadline for prosecutors to file any charges. 

A vigil was held for Lyne on Tuesday night at a church near her suburban home. 

We received a statement from the victim's family. They say in part: 

"This weekend, a light went out in our lives forever. Ingrid, beloved mother, daughter, sister, and friend was taken from us for reasons we still cannot comprehend."

They went on to thank the community for the support. 

Lyne was a mother to three young girls. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with the financial costs of raising the girls who have been left without a mother. As of Wednesday around noon, the account has already raised over $110,000.
