Body parts that were packaged in plastic bags and thrown into a recycling bin in Seattle this weekend have been identified as the mother-of-three who disappeared after she went on a date with a man she met online, police said.
Ingrid Lyne, 40, was last seen leaving to attend the Seattle Mariners opening game with a date on Friday, and raised alarms when she didn't pick up her children the next morning.
Her remains, which included a foot, were still 'fresh' when they were recovered on Saturday afternoon in a neighborhood about 2.7miles away from Safeco Stadium, an officer said.
Suspect John Robert Charlton, 37, who is believed to have taken Lyne to the game, was booked in jail on Monday afternoon while police investigate her murder, Seattle police said.

'All evidence leads in the direction of that missing woman,' Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole said at a news conference on Monday night.
A search warrant was issued, and evidence such as telephone call records led detectives to Charlton, who was booked into King County Jail Monday afternoon in connection to the murder, WREG reported.
Police believe Charlton was the man who took Lyne on a date, and said they do not believe there are additional suspects, the local news site reported.
Police desperately searched for Lyne, who worked as a nurse at the Swedish Medical Center, after friends reported she was missing on Saturday morning.
Police broke into her Renton, Washington home and found her purse and cellphone there. Her silver 2015 Toyota Highlander, with the plate number AUW3230, has not yet been recovered.
Three of Lyne's body parts were packaged in plastic bags, and found in the recycling bin outside a 21st Ave and E. Pine Street home at 4pm on Saturday.
The homeowner called 911 and homicide detectives and medical examiners confirmed the man's initial suspicions that the packages included human remains.
The body parts, which Seattle Police Sergeant Mike Renner said were still 'fresh' upon discovery, were taken to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
On Saturday night, homicide detectives learned that a missing persons report was filed that morning, and police identified the victim as Lyne.
Investigators said there is 'no reason to believe that there's any question of the victim's identity', but the King County Medical Examiner’s Office will not confirm this until after they perform an autopsy.

The investigation is ongoing, and Charlton has not been charged. His is currently held under a 'homicide investigation' with bail denied.
Neighbor Edward Franceschina says he last saw Lyne Friday afternoon, checking her mail.
Franceschina said he considers Lyne more like a daughter than a neighbor and was very worried.
'It’s not good, and the longer it goes on the more you think she’s not coming back,' Franceschina told Q13.
