Human remains found in dumpster near Okmulgee Walmart, investigation underway

Human remains found in dumpster near Okmulgee Walmart, investigation underway

But Boulder detectives working the case in Oklahoma and the Okmulgee Police Department have tentatively identified the remains as Mead based on observations made during the autopsy.

Densmore, who is the father of Mead's child, has been arrested on charges of first-degree murder. They hadn't been seen since Sunday.

Ashley Mead and her daughter, Winter, were reported missing in Colorado earlier this week when Ashley did not show up to work.

Boulder Police say Okmulgee Police contacted them soon after the body was discovered.

Police believe the remains, a gutted torso, belong to Mead, but they have not been positively identified, Boulder Police spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly told Crimesider.

Adam Densmore, the father of 24-year-old Ashley Mead's young daughter, was arrested outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma on Wednesday. On the morning of February 15, he left Conway and stopped in Okmulgee, Oklahoma before he was found and arrested just west of Tulsa at approximately 1:30 p.m.

Brandon Phillips is close to being dealt to the Atlanta Braves
Phillips isn't a powerful hitter but a good situational hitter who should hit.280 or better and offer above average defense. This was (at least) the second time Phillips had invoked his 10-and-5 rights to veto a trade.

Nicole Kidman says she was once engaged to Lenny Kravitz
Some were shocked by the news of Nicole's and Lenny's engagement, considering the fact that their dating relationship was short. While talking about her new HBO series Big Little Lies, Kidman mentions that she had a history with costar Zoë Kravtiz.

Densmore already was in custody at the Pawnee County Jail after being arrested Wednesday on suspicion of violating a custody agreement when he was found with the daughter he has with Mead.

Police are still trying to determine exactly where Densmore traveled between Sunday and Wednesday. Cordingly declined to say how Mead is believed to have been killed, but said the slaying is believed to have taken place in Boulder, where she said Densmore and Cordingly had an "on-again, off-again" relationship and were living together.

Authorities in Oklahoma reportedly recovered the baby, who was unharmed, after Densmore's arrest and placed her in the temporary care of state protective services.

On February 14, police say Densmore drove to Conway, Arkansas where he spent the night.

A portion of Mead's remains may be in a purple suitcase left along the route that included a stop in Conway, authorities said in a news release.

On the morning of February 15, it's reported he left Conway and stopped in Okmulgee before being arrested around 1:30 p.m. They ask anyone who sees a suitcase placed in an odd location to avoid touching it and to contact their local police department immediately.
