What led to John Robert Charlton purposefully preying on Ingrid Lyne whom he met on an online dating site? Authorities tell they are no longer seeking other suspects.

Authorities have arrested suspect John Robert Charlton, 37 in the murder of Seattle mother of three, Ingrid Lyne, 40 after body parts belonging to the woman were found thrown in a recycling bin this weekend.

John Charlton’s arrest comes after Ingrid Lyne disappeared after going out on a date with a man she met on an online dating site. Authorities have since identified the woman’s date as John Robert Charlton.

According to a report via Q13, Lyne was last seen leaving to attend the Seattle Mariners opening game with a ‘date’ on Friday, with alarm bells raised when the mother didn’t turn up to pick up her children the next morning.

Authorities made the ghastly discovery of the mother’s remains, cut up and ‘fresh’, including Ingrid Lyne’s foot in a recycling container in a neighborhood about 2.7 miles away from Safeco Stadium.

Authorities were able to identify Lyne because one of the body parts discovered in the Central District receptacle was a head.

Detectives according to a report via The Seattle Times believe the body parts had been packaged and placed in the bin near 21st Avenue and Pine Street sometime late Friday or on Saturday. The bin had been emptied of recyclables Friday.

Upon being notified of her disappearance, cops ‘desperately’ searched for the missing mother, who had been last seen getting into her silver 2015 Toyota Highlander, with the plate number, AUW3230. Along with the mother disappearing, the woman’s car also was described missing.

Augmenting fears that Ingrid Lynne had run into foul play, fellow coworkers at Swedish Medical Center where the missing woman worked as a nurse had unsuccessfully tried to reach out to the man who took her to the game.

Upon being notified of her disappearance, police broke into Lynne’s Renton, Washington home and found her purse and cellphone there. 

Of question is what calls or texts may have been exchanged between the missing woman and the purported assailant John Charlton? A report via WREG told of telephone call records leading detectives to John Charlton, in nearby Snohomish County.

According to the Seattle Times John Robert Charlton was previously convicted for misdemeanors of assault and battery. He was also found guilty of theft and the possession of marijuana.

Charlton’s facebook profile describes himself as ‘self-employed,’ and a and a graduate of West Auburn High School.

It wasn’t until Saturday afternoon, circa 4pm, that authorities’ fears for the worse were confirmed for the worse when a Seattle homeowner found three packages in the recycling bin outside his home at 21st Ave and E. Pine Street.

He called 911 and homicide detectives and medical examiners confirmed the homeowner’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 the victim was identified as Ingrid Lyne.

Police said they do not believe that Ingrid Lyne was murdered where her body parts came to be discovered, instead telling that her body parts were dumped in that neighborhood.

‘I’ve never seen anything like it,‘ said Seattle Police Sgt. Mike Renner.

Renner went on to tell that police also searched other bins in the neighborhood but found nothing

Police have not yet said whether formal charges have been filed against John Robert Charlton for the murder of Ingrid Lyne. He is currently held under a ‘homicide investigation’ with bail denied.

That said detectives have since told that there are no other outstanding suspects as friends and family begin to ask what motivated Snohomish County man, John Robert Charlton to purposefully prey on an unsuspecting woman? How the man came to woo her and whether there are other instances of John Charlton preying on other women?

Lyne’s three children are currently staying with a family friend, FOX reported. A Renton woman whose children go to school with Lyne’s launched a GoFundMe page for Lyne’s daughters. The site raised about $33,000 by late Tuesday afternoon.

Wrote Melissa Korda, the fundraiser’s organizer, ‘Ingrid left behind many that loved her, but most importantly her 3 daughters are now without a mother. It is heartbreaking to think of the journey ahead for this family.’

  • tearcollector

    I suppose you’re fine with the father dating? Of course, the mother should be celibate until she dies. Right?

  • tearcollector

    That isn’t him. The picture is of someone else, which is stated in a comment below the picture. I would be unhappy if someone used my picture and tied it into a murder case that had nothing to do with me.

  • Tim Davis

    First and foremost, no one deserves this…..how incredibly sad, a beautiful mother of 3, who’s job was to help sick/injured people, and she ends up with this sick and repulsive excuse for a man.
    Makes you wonder if there are any more as a result of this sick bastard.
    I completely agree with David’s idea.

  • Pedro Antonio

    very gruesome case to say the least. The guy must have had all prepared since to cut an human being into pieces its not easy task. Horrible, gruesome, apalling , crime. Such people deserved to be locked in solidary dark cell for the rest of their lives.

  • Raquel Valair

    I DO HOPE YOU ARE RIGHT!! However, I know there are cases out there where people have gotten off light because they found a way to use the alcohol or drugs as an excuse.

  • TooWeirdToLiveTooRareToDie

    Why is everyone reading this wrong? He will serve AT LEAST 21-28 years. He’s never getting out he will never be eligible for parole.

  • TooWeirdToLiveTooRareToDie

    We are liberal, especially Seattle. But I looked up an article about it. In reality the crime rate, specifically the murder rate is lower than the rest of the country but crimes committed here are especially creepy.

  • Raquel Valair

    Unfortunately, they arrest, shoot and kill innocent blacks and Latinos all the time. However, even if this guy is convicted, he is looking a getting out in 28 years, if he lives long enough. I wonder if juries can request life imprisonment or the death penalty for this guy. They wanted to give Isiah Kelebu the death penalty, why not this monster??? They should all be treated the same!

  • Raquel Valair

    I think its because people on the west coast are more liberal. They are less likely to suspect or judge. When something like this happens in Boston, the whole city wants to take em down. My brother used to take down monsters like this, back there. He was a HERO till the day he died!

  • Raquel Valair

    This reminds me of an episode of Boston Legal, where a blue collar maintenance worker at a wealthy apartment complex was blamed for killing someone’s wife, while having an affair with her. By the time the episode came to an end, they were looking at the husband for it because he lied about knowing about his wife’s affair with the maintenance worker.

  • Raquel Valair

    AMEN!

  • Raquel Valair

    I read they only want to put this guy away for 28 years. They wanted to give Isaiah Kalebu the death penalty for a similar crime. I wonder if juries can demand this guy get fried.

  • Raquel Valair

    AMEN AGAIN! I would rather protect my home with a bow and arrow. I can reuse the arrow. 😉

  • Raquel Valair

    In the words of ZARDOZ, The Gun Is Good! The Penis is Bad! But only when aimed at homicidal maniacs. Peace.

  • Raquel Valair

    I LOVE IT!!! ME TOO!!!

  • Raquel Valair

    The system is RACIST! They wanted to put Isiah Kalebu to death for the rape and stabbing of two women, where one of them died while escaping. He is suppose to spend the rest of his natural life in prison, due to a mental illness. Federal law won’t allow the execution of mentally ill prisoners. The only way he will leave prison, is in a body bag. HOWEVER, some white piece of trash gets drunk and hacks up a single mother of three, and if he lives long enough, can get out within 28 years. That is RACIST and its WRONG!

  • Raquel Valair

    OH YEAHHHHHH! AAAAMENNNN!!!!

  • Yes, all mammals swallow. But unlike all mammals, you had jake steed’s ga.y d!ck in your mouth, CokStarR✯.

  • ★RokStarR☆

    Oh yeah. Well, You swallowed.

  • Like you blow a ga.y jake steed.

  • I don’t understand how a site like this can simultaneously run this story along with all of the hyper-sexualized photos of women and links titled, “Amazingly Kinky Photos” (women only), “17 Women Who Forgot the Camera Catches All”, “Check Out This Giant List of Bisexual Women”, “Jaws Dropped when She Showed up to Prom” — all showing women smutting it up on a page where we are simultaneously supposed to forget about yet another man who murdered yet another woman. Oh, as well as , “Shocking Pics of Celebs Caught Cheating” (women only in pics), “14 Celebs who Destroyed Themselves with Drugs” (women only in pics), “15 Plus Most Promiscuous Cities in the World” (pictures of only women again), “You Wouldn’t Believe the Benefits Wedding Photographers Get” (with yes, large breasts as the link’s sole image).

    I wish we could care about the tragedies that befall women without making it seem that women — by virtue OF BEING WOMEN — deserve to be hurt, murdered, and dismembered by men who never get shown as smutty, throwaway garbage.

  • Cooper

    Fuck off

  • Cooper

    No. “Troll” is a unique snowflake PC made up word to justify evil, sociopathic, demonic comments made by little fucks who need their asses drug out from their basements and beat with baseball bats in public. I refuse to blur the line between the two.

  • Cooper

    Reports say, he was expected back over to his ex girlfriends house to help with GARDEN/YARD WORK. He stayed there 2x a week, the rest at a homeless shelter. My bet is he stole the saw from his ex girlfriend. Ingrid’s mom didn’t recognize the saw as being Ingrid’s. If that’s the case, it WAS premeditated. I spoke with a girl on Facebook who looked eerily similar to Ingrid, who said she was contacted about a year ago on POF by this guy, and decided not to meet up with him. She claimed she tried contacting police immediately after hearing about this story and kinda dismissed her. Creepy…

  • Cooper

    That was NOT HIM in the picture. It was his ex bro in law. The real killer obviously kled her and dismembered this poor woman with a common garden saw. Thanks for playing though.

  • Cooper

    THATS NOT HIM, ITS HIS EX BRO IN LAW!!!! JESUS

  • TooWeirdToLiveTooRareToDie

    That it is. That poor woman just wanted to let her hair down.

  • Canary Red™

    This truly a tragic ending considering the circumstances. Bless those little motherless beautiful daughters!

  • Canary Red™

    Oh really what did they do differently than others looking for family members. Seiousky, this was record time.

  • laur152

    That is not a picture of Charlton. It is probably a friend. it doesn’t even look like the suspect.

  • TooWeirdToLiveTooRareToDie

    Honestly it was Ingrid’s family being proactive that made the turn around quick.

  • eire

    correction..it was not their first date, but they have their man in custody, hope he rots in hell

  • Canary Red™

    Yes!!!! How quick they solved this case! Remarkable! Thanks for telling me this because I sincerely was impressed with their turnaround.

  • oleironleg01

    How did he get her address? He could have been some child killer and gone after one of her daughters.

  • joanna jacobson

    So telling … … aren’t they. Looks whacked!!

  • joanna jacobson

    Bravo David. Me too and I’m a female!!

  • Kylen

    Could be a distant cousin

  • nanci

    he used her as bait, he was waiting on the right time, but in his head, he knew she had a short time to live. I think he hated her, and with her profile, she came off as younger than she really was. he had evil thoughts of her, but kept it to himself because like the preying fox, he waited until he was good and ready. I feel bad for the kids.

  • wanders365

    Dear Jen, YES. It is not the gun that rational people fear, it is the idiot who ‘poses’ with a gun – his warm, warm gun. Guns are for sissies.

  • Deaf Guy

    What I can’t understand is, she seemed like a nice, intelligent lady. Didn’t she go to this guy’s Facebook page and see the “Charlie Manson wild-eyed” photo of him holding a gun? And then say, forget this guy?

  • ericlover

    He has lost over 20 FB friends since all of this too!

  • ericlover

    his finger prints? I didn’t see that.

  • justtoosmooth

    He looks super psycho.

  • justtoosmooth

    This isn’t about internet dating, cause people are killed everyday by people they randomly meet. This is about a sick man who took the life of a mother of three. Sad story. I have a feeling she was ready to stop seeing him and he got upset.

  • TooWeirdToLiveTooRareToDie

    Yeah pretty sure the drunk thing is a lie.

  • justtoosmooth

    Everyone is making this more about internet dating, rather than someone being killed for no reason. Ted Bundy killed many of women, way before the internet dating boom. Have to face it… There are many sick people in this world. He would have eventually found someone via internet, Library, or grocery store.

  • Mfirebrand1

    Is this real?

  • Gary curiel

    They had been dating for a month actually

  • Canary Red™

    Your perspective I respect and well aware of HOWEVER they do and have arrested people WILLY NILLY lets not be forget just to make your valid point…in hindsight based on the evidence they are just now releasing the man stayed over to her house often in the 30 days she knew him! Sicko from jump! And he admitted going back to the house that night but cannot remember what happen because he was so drunk.

  • Canary Red™

    My thoughts exactly! My ex-husband is going to swear I stayed out all night laying up – last thing on his mind is I’m missing. And then he is going to his back up (grandparents) drop them off complaining the whole time.
    If he didn’t do – that man was/is a sicko the whole 30 days she knew him!

  • body bits in Ingrid’s bathroom and a pruning saw that John used – with his fingerprints- left behind in the bathroom after chopping Ingrid up- editor.

  • yes she returned with John back home and that is where she was murdered (in the bathroom)- hacked up and then had her body parts packed away and put in ‘neat pieces’ in recycling bins in a nearby bin – the editor

  • yes both Ingrid and John returned at Ingrid’s and that is when he chopped her up with a pruning saw. Either he had one in the car or came across it in the house after reportedly telling cops he ‘blacked out’ after drinking. What to believe?

    https://scallywagandvagabond.com/2016/04/john-charlton-ingrid-lyne-murder-dismembered-15-inch-pruning-saw/

  • the children were placed with their father- the Seattle Times confirmed reports of this fact on Tuesday. – the editor

  • The ex husband is not under suspicion. When Ingrid went out on a date, she left her 3 daughters with her ex husband, (who is the father of the three children) overnight. When Ingrid didn’t pick up her cellphone or drop by Saturday to pick up the kids, then her ex set up a facebook alarm along with notifying authorities. It wasn’t until a man at 21st Avenue and Pine Street nearby saw what appeared to be a body part sticking out from the ‘neatly’ packed trash that Ingrid’s remains were found- the editor

  • the murder ended up taking place in Ingrid’s bathroom after they returned from watching the Seattle Mariners opening game. An inspection of the home led to police finding a 15 inch pruning saw in the bathroom which the assailant used on his victim. Along with her cellphone, and purse, police also found body bits, blood in the bathroom. Charlton later claimed he ‘blacked out’ from heavy drinking ….

    https://scallywagandvagabond.com/2016/04/john-charlton-ingrid-lyne-murder-dismembered-15-inch-pruning-saw/

  • Yes the picture came directly from the assailant’s facebook page. I was shocked and caught off guard when i came across it and thought to myself ‘if this isn’t a warning bell that something is off about my new ‘friend’ ….then what is? ‘ the editor

  • Yes revised media reports tell that the pair had been going out for a month after initially meeting through an online dating site. Nevertheless the implications are clear, ‘buyer/user beware…’ – the editor

  • mlander80

    I’m with you on this Ketch, the internet mob is forming already. We have trials for a reason, these idiots have no idea what the real circumstances are in this case, they just want to burn someone at the stake because it’s a good looking white woman.

  • i thought so

    Amen to that! There should be intensive mental health screening and a 6 month waiting period before anyone gets a permit for a gun! Men in this country used to fight with their fists and no one had guns in their homes. What the hell happened? Oh, I know. The NRA brain washed you so you’ve become a nation of cowards hiding being bullets shooting at shadows! Geez! Man up for god’s sake! There are psycho’s slaughtering people that should enver have access to guns like this murderer in his FB photo. We need to make all weapons harder to get, not easier!

  • i thought so

    BINGO!

  • i thought so

    David’s not the only one who’d love a shot at that slimey murdering coward! I’d love to rip that monster to shreds and see him suffer! I’m a woman and would gladly use my power tools on that bastard! Slow and painful baby! Beg me for mercy but I can’t hear you! My chain saw is simply too loud paying you back for slicing & dicing an innocent Mom! Two can play at that sick game! Seriosuly, I’d love a shot at him! I’m sure David would love to walk his talk too! Whatever it takes to get that monster off the face of the earth as soon as humanely possible! Payback back’s a pneumatic nail gun shooting bitch! Don’t mess with Mom’s!

  • Maggie Cola

    That explains his being “self employed.”

  • trejtt

    How do you know that “David” isn’t the murderer himself, pretending outrage and being such an incredibly hero for all the thinking people by offering his killing services on the man who is accused? Have you ever even met “David”? How do you know he is “good man” if you haven’t even met him, haven’t seen if he would be wiling to beat this accused person to death with his bare hands for your benefit, or whether he is really outraged or just playing to the audience of morons who would applaud the idea of ignoring the rule of law like he suggests? Are you clairvoyant?

  • ★RokStarR☆

    I wonder if her daughters will trust men when they are grown ups? I probably wouldn’t if that was me and i was a female. Why can’t the biological father watch them instead of the family friend? After all he did watch them Friday night. Men always run from responsibilities. Cowards these days. Fry johns azz! He looked suspect from the get go.

  • TooWeirdToLiveTooRareToDie

    Is it just me or does it seem like Washington state is the breeding ground for gruesome murders and serial killers? Is there a reason for that? I’m not trying to troll, I’m just genuinely curious if that is the case and if there is a reason for it.

  • ★RokStarR☆

    You look like a ga.y jake steed

  • i thought so

    Holy Crap! They need to end that freak’s life NOW! No court time, no jail time, no prison time, no lawyers! Just ONE BULLET between the eyes and be done with it! I pray her daughters are protected as much as possible from the horrific details. My deepest sympathy goes out to them and to all who knew and loved their Mom.

  • katie

    Ketch are you that much of an idiot? John Charlton is obviously guilty and should be put to death! Figure it out ketch!!!

  • Tom Davis

    This has really gotten to me…she worked and studied her whole life and gave birth to three sweet girls, and this punk scars them for life and many others. Give me five minutes with this guy , just five and a baseball bat…no garbage bags needed.

  • disqus_s4n9NxE7Bi

    EXACTLY. The ex-husband posted two diff pictures on his facebook Saturday afternoon– both photos were of him and his daughters. Who has time to update facebook after reporting to police that his ex-wife is missing??

    And why did he assume she is missing? When my ex isn’t home and it’s time to pick up/drop off kids my first thought isn’t “he’s missing”- it’s “they’re running late or they forgot today is my day etc”

    A local paper reported the girls are currently staying with family friends- NOT with their dad. I find it odd that they were placed with family friends and not their father.

    Maybe there’s more to this story than meets the eye.

  • TooWeirdToLiveTooRareToDie

    Careful David, this man may be more dangerous than he lets on.

  • TooWeirdToLiveTooRareToDie

    The police know more than they are reporting to the public. This is why we have the criminal justice system. They wouldn’t have arrested him if they thought he was innocent.

  • Pedro Antonio

    exactly. Thinking twice at history…, all is very strange. She had his picture in her FB. And the fact that cell was found home shows she returned home from the date. Not a small finding. So let us not jump to conclusion. I would say ex is second prime suspect.

  • diced_pineapples

    or lack of!

  • TooWeirdToLiveTooRareToDie

    Her and the ex were on decent terms from the sound of it. Not all ex-husbands are bad guys.

  • Pedro Antonio

    yes.., the detail that the cell was found home shows that she returned from the date. At least she made home. So lets not jump to conclusions. I hope police will do homework

  • Pedro Antonio

    you are right. The fact that her phone and purse were seen in her home should be fully investigated. That is strange indeed. I guess it would show she returned from the date. I hope police is not picking wrong guy

  • Dana Glennon

    I know, I wept yesterday as I thought of her since I heard she was missing and so hoping all would turn out well. How low to rob children of their mother. Sad.

  • Dana Glennon

    lol

  • Dana Glennon

    Ketch if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and sounds like a duck. Guess what it is a duck. I guess your just not that smart though to see a no brainer…..There is much more evidence but it is not out for the public.

  • Gay Maddox

    What does it mean when you write, “victim blaming”? Who’s blaming the victim?

  • Dana Glennon

    Agree David, so glad men feel the anger of this as well. This scares all of us now not to try on line dating.

  • Gay Maddox

    Then who’s the guy in the 2nd picture?

  • Gay Maddox

    For me, it wasn’t the fact that he posed for a photo while holding a gun. It was the look in his eyes that frightened.

  • Gay Maddox

    Surely the 2nd and 3rd pics shown at the top of this article were not shots he put on that dating site. He looks like an evil person in both of those pictures. Poor little children.

  • Robby the Robot

    I’m not terrified of guns. or of black ppl. ur the scaredy cat needing guns

  • DBA

    Agree…and even with the snake, he looks strange.

  • DBA

    Yeah, the born again thing is a tool often used by prisoners because it’s accepted…I have this from a man I once knew who served time. It’s used by guys and they’re master manipulators. I also knew a woman who Gave a guy in prison all her money because she said she “was leading him to Christ”….yeah, sure.

  • DBA

    Online is no different from a neighbor or someone in a bar. But do the checks…and, even then, there are no total guarantees.

  • DBA

    Pepper Spray…good idea. Also, do a criminal/sexual predator check on the internet!!! One can’t do enough for ones own safety! Maybe he used that gun to intimidate her. None of us knows the full story.

  • DBA

    Maybe she broke up with him and he was angry. Maybe he was into drugs (look at his photos), Maybe he was just a sicko…Conjecture.

  • DBA

    Exactly

  • DBA

    If he was into drugs, he’s not thinking things through.

  • DBA

    When you bring three kids home, and your ex is not there, when she usually is, that would seem strange. I’m sure there is more evidence…we’re not always given everything. More will come out. This is reality, not a TV mystery show.

  • DBA

    Agree..our justice system is pathetic. The fact that this guy has a record is reason enough, I’d bet, that he should have been still in jail. Laws should be stricter and swifter.

  • DBA

    Guns kill…Sissies? What is the purpose of a gun? Look at his face on the photo holding the gun. A real man doesn’t need to impress with a gun.

  • DBA

    There are easy ways to check criminal and sexual predators on the internet, and it’s free. Everyone should use these services, especially for someone one plans to date. This information is a valuable warning! Some sickos can be manipulative and charming. This is just so sad…lovely three girls.

  • Nanette Valencia

    Horrible. He should get the death penalty

  • Joey

    We should figure out who troll is ? What’s everyone think ?heartless trash ! your a coward bro and you think you can hide behind that keyboard wrong bro.

  • OhWell
  • mojofilter

    I’ve been following this lady’s story ever since it was first reported that she went missing, and, man, am I heartbroken that she was found killed, and in the most gruesome and disturbing way. I’d love to meet this monster who did this to her and take matters in my own hands. What a piece of lowlife trash!

  • Joey

    Honestly this news has been in my head all day . I’m across the country in Boston and this just tears me up . This great mom is raising 3 little girls and this scum of the earth comes along and takes it . I want this guy to suffer in the worst way . And when he comes easy to our jails he will trust me . I pray that God watches those girls and they are in good hands . If anybody knows how’s to donate to them poor kids let me know . Feel like I lost a friend and never met her . So sad rip Ingrid lyne. And to that scum that did this you better pray hard bud cause your time is coming.

  • linae Jackson

    Right? He has some piercing evil eyes…. I am so sad by this story, I hope they cook that sick bass

  • CitizenX911

    He was the last person to see her. The police will figure it out if he did it. His dating profile is very suspicious.

  • CitizenX911

    Kudos to you for having a knife. Invest in pepper spray as well. It
    could give you time to get away and save your life. They have different
    sizes that have a key ring on them for your keys. I carry one in the car to diffuse any road rage situation.

    She should have done more homework on this guy. Just by looking at his Facebook pics he looks like a flake. Especially at his age with his dating profile stating .no job and ‘Student/Aquatics’ <- that is bizarre. His statements about only interested in friendship are BS too. What single guys at his age who are not recently divorced only interested in friendship only.

  • OhWell

    His whole profile is shady as hell. His online profile is no better. This is why I carry a knife on me at all times. Not in my purse, I don’t leave it in my house, it’s on me, in my pocket, AT ALL TIMES. Some people think I’m crazy. But you know what, you never know with people, especially from online. It’s more common these days to see crazy fucked up people than to see normal ones. Better prepared. Just in case.

  • CitizenX911

    The first hint for any woman or man on a dating site, if the person admits ‘self-employed and two steps from the bottom’ They are LOSERS!!! Stay away, they are trouble off the bat!!!! This woman probably felt sorry for him and since he said not interested in a relationship, she figured no harm…. but that should been a clue to his BS. The one pic with that Bundy smile, he is got a white t-shirt that looks like a mental hospital outfit or prison garb. The other pic definitely shows his CRAZY eyes and strange demeanor… Woman always carry pepper spray with you at all times… I am so sorry for this beautiful lady, I pray he pays the ultimate price.

    Ann didn’t say she was afraid of guns. Ann insinuated that she doesn’t have trust for people that are into guns. Entirely fine by me if Ann wants to hold that opinion. I too would never ever ever ever go on a date with a shmuck who was posing with a firearm in a Facebook pic. No way no day. Huge red flag for “loser”. It has nothing to do with being ‘afraid of guns’ either. It has everything to do with spotting weak, pathetic qualities in other humans and trying to avoid those perils. I find it curious that you associate being a “sissy” with not wanting to partake in firearms usage in the first place. Guns are one of the more sissy things out there. Toddlers can fire them! lol! Non-sissy would be beating a man to death with your bare hands. Taking down a huge bear with nothing but a bow & arrow. That’s non-sissy. A gun is sissy x1000. There’s nothing more sissy than a gun. Coward sticks for pansy wimp babies.

  • OhWell

    There must be some pretty damning evidence for the police to cease looking for a suspect. A murder case? They would not sit on their hands and do nothing and stop looking if there was no reason to. Police WANT to lock murderers up, not sit and wait and get one suspect at a time.

  • Jen Adler

    It’s not about that. It’s about the safety of the good citizens in society. There is only one fool proof way to ensure this guy never gets opportunity to do this to someone else and that is to kill him. I would like “justice” to be about ensuring the safety of the innocent, not the safety of the guilty.

  • OhWell

    Slutty?? Why? Because she had a very full life taking care of three children and on a weekend they were at their father’s house she decided to go out with the guy she was dating? You DO realize that online dating has become the norm, right? Online dating isn’t taboo, slutty, looked down on as desperate or pathetic anymore. Interview anyone off the street, chances are they have at least one online dating app on their phone, or have at the very least, dabbled with it in the past. Dating someone for a month, and going to a ball game doesn’t make her slutty, but thanks for your retarded comment!

  • OhWell

    He has no real record? He has a very real record. Just because the only flags he has are from 10 years ago doesn’t mean he stopped being a piece of shit 10 years ago. Just means he became smarter at not getting caught. Until now.

  • OhWell

    This is how I think it went down: She was last seen at the game leaving in her car. I think she was the one to drive them to the game, she made it back to her house, put her purse and phone down, and it’s at this point he snaps. Doesn’t make sense she would go anywhere with no purse or phone.

  • Canary Red™

    this is my perspective…something is just not right with this story and all these choppy details being reported…EX HUSBAND is who should also be question…why is he filing a missing person report HE did not know for sure – I DONT care about her routine behavior – he should not have known for a fact and the POLICE jumped all over this ASAP

  • OhWell

    I don’t think she went on the date without her purse and phone. From the articles I’ve read, she was last seen getting into her car. This to me, tells me she went on the date and proceeded to drive home. Her purse and phone were found in her home. I think she made it back to her house, put her stuff down, and at this point this is where things go down.

  • Canary Red™

    NO ONE KNOWS FOR A FACT HE DID IT. JUST BECAUSE THE POLICE ARE STATING NO OTHER SUSPECT DOES NOT MEAN THERE ARENT ANY OTHERS, JUST MEANS THEY ARE NOT LOOKING AT THIS TIME!

  • Sondra Benson

    According to a neighbor, the house he lived in was known as a “drug house.”

  • Sondra Benson

    Her purse and cell phone were discovered in her home? No way would a mother of 3 leave her home without her cell phone, The murderer must have taken her from her home.

  • xrich

    the whole situation is strange. the guy has no real record (misdemeanor assault and drug possession a decade ago is nothing) and then he kills and butchers her? he had to know that his identity would easily be found since he used online dating site that had his financial info. i wonder what evidence the police have other than the dating site.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    If they went out on Friday night and attended the game, and then her body parts were found Saturday afternoon, all I can say is he sure got busy after killing her. From the time a game would’ve ended (if they even made it to the game, that is) to finding her body parts… that’s less than 24 hours. It’s not easy to dismember a human. You gotta wonder if this was pre-planned and he had everything ready to use for her dismemberment. Sick.

  • Sergio Castellano

    She was such a cutie and with a Sweet Personality to go along with it!! A guy must be soul-less to harm such an Angel.
    Many times it’s the Keepers who are taken for granted and the are not seen as being Lonely. I read a comment by a psychologist a few weeks ago who compared loneliness to an ongoing toothache. He said the pain can be so overwhelming an individual will try anything to find relief.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    It wasn’t their first date.

  • goldenoldy1

    No death penalty in Washington. Awesome. Now you get to support this P*O*S for the rest of his life. Maybe he can get a law degree courtesy of the taxpayers. Or better yet, become a born again!

  • Slightly misanthropic

    True. I don’t have a FB page, I’m kinda old fashioned and still prefer to pick up the phone and like hearing a voice 🙂 However, I heard that he hadn’t updated his page since January. I guess, there may or may not have been small signs, but when the person is a complete stranger, you have to err on the side of caution. One thing I have learned (to explain to the women in my family) is to not ride in the same car as the person, drive separately, park in plain view, and also make a couple phone calls while you’re with the date (so the date is aware people know their location)

  • stickler

    Judging from his pics, the guy’s looks would rate at least a 4 star, cool, macho dude rating, proving you can’t judge a book by its cover. His creepiness was all on the inside, along with his astonishing stupidity.

  • Robby the Robot

    ur the wuss. u need a gun to feel like a man. u must live in the ghetto

  • Robby the Robot

    I don’t need a gun cause I’m not a woman or a wimp

  • Cooper

    Fuck off. You have a bad soul

  • Cooper

    Shut up MORON.

  • Cooper

    Oh here we go. The troll again… The third picture is of his ex bro in law. NOT HIM. Also, if you’re such a weenie, you are terrified of guns-please turn in your man card, and I am a woman.

  • Cooper

    This is NOT a picture of him. The third picture is if his ex brother in law. So please STOP victim blaming.

  • Helene Hopley

    It isn’t just that, that is odd. It is the generic quality of his FB page. I have 62 FB friends…and a few I have never met. Still, their FB pages tell their story. Charlton’s? No.

  • Helene Hopley

    I saw that photo on his FB page. It is him…no doubt in my mind. One of his friends comments that it is Charlton.

  • Helene Hopley

    Of course one cannot spot a killer by their FB page. However, if you check out Charlton’s FB page…it is just…..strange. His FB page reminds me of strangers who have requested to “Friend Me”.

    Charlton lists ‘self employed’…but doesn’t say what he does. He lists colleges attended as ‘all’. There is NO defining info about this guy. I do know that a person doesn’t have to reveal their entire life, but his is strangely “empty” of anything that would make him unique.

    Charlton has a fair number of “friends”, but his photos (except for a couple of childhood ones) show him alone. One of them shows him posing with a gun…and a snake nearby (sure, that can be innocuous). Anyways, no way to tell a killer, but by his FB page I would never ever have accepted him as a FB friend.

  • Roland Cuthbert

    That is one view. But I don’t understand “us”, I guess.

    I don’t understand the drivel that is posted on the net. I don’t understand our love of violence and how we think violence solves everything. I don’t understand hatred of people that is based on mythology.

    I guess I just don’t get it. The ball is rolling down the hill and it is picking up speed. And no one seems to be able to stop it.

    This woman did not hurt a soul. She was just trying to find love. And this demonic creature murdered her. Look at the photos? He is like celebrating being a demonic violent freak. And yet before he killed her, he would have been looked upon as an upstanding American. A “Christian and free-thinker”.

  • OLD PIZZA

    This is Seattle. Weird people! Strange happenings!

  • OLD PIZZA

    Lots of people carry guns. That doesn’t mean they or their family have “major violence issues”. You need to educate yourself.

  • OLD PIZZA

    This was not their first date. They met and had been dating since February. Try to keep up, OK?

  • Roland Cuthbert

    We were actually supposed to “mature” as a species. Well, one would hope. Maybe that is too much to ask.

  • guest

    unfortunately, WA state has no death penalty

  • guest

    ikr, apparently one of the body parts was her head, which means this sicko didn’t dismember her to cover up her identity, so it seems like he’s straight up insane/maniac

  • Slightly misanthropic

    oh, lol. Thank you for the update! Still strikes me as odd, though. Maybe just given the all the information that we are aware of….

  • guest

    yeah, that pic was on his FB, but it’s not of him, it seemed to be of some other fam member according to the comments that were there by him and others about the pic, but still, it does show the mentality of his family members or whoever it is

  • Tom Magee

    There is a dead snake clearly in the picture.

  • guest

    apparently it wasn’t a first date, some friends said in an interview or somewhere that they had been going out for a month, so it wasn’t a one time date thing if the friends recollections are correct

  • guest

    that photo of the guy with the gun doesn’t seem to be him….it’s another family member (obviously this fam has major violence issues), but on the original FB page, it was some other person in his family or apparently some other person. But still, it shows the mindset of the family

  • Slightly misanthropic

    I understand not everyone who carries a gun is crazy, and not
    everyone who is crazy carries a gun. That said, I see nothing redeeming
    in the manner in which he posed in the picture holding his gun. He is
    on some dirt road, squatting, holding a gun. He’s not hunting, not
    target practice, nothing. He has his head cocked back in some odd fashion with some odd look on his face. I apologize if I’m playing armchair detective, but we (especially women) have to be as diligent as possible when selecting people to go out with…

  • shehawk3

    Right?!

  • shehawk3

    My thoughts exactly. Plus his pics…I even feel creeped out looking at them. What was she thinking??

  • shehawk3

    Seriously! He scares me!

  • shehawk3

    I was praying and hoping for a positive outcome. My heart breaks for her three young daughters. This monster needs to be dragged to death. As a mother, I feel for her babies. They have lost their mother in the most brutal way imaginable. I can only imagine what her family is going through.

  • Monica

    We need more men in this world like David. Good men who are outraged when evil men prey on women. But you’d rather attack the good guy with some internet horse$hit speak. You’re a LOSER.

  • 1digger

    Wuss. You must be one of those losers that advocate for gun free zones. Do you have a sign posted in your yard or on your vehicles stating as much? Good luck with that strategy if you actually face the real world and someone decides to take aim at your ignorance and think that all you have to do is call 911. When seconds count, police are minutes away and if you rely on that option, they’ll probably be there in time to write up a report and have the coroner shove your sorry a_s into a body bag.

    the right will blame it on blacklivesmatter

    ur an idiot

    yeah it’s believing in the fact of evolution that’s to blame. there was no violence before that. moron

    if u need a gun then u ARE a sissy

    I know right? We need bigger recycling bins. mine are always full of beer bottles

    By this observation of yours,, are you implying you could hack up some far bigger lady had you a larger trash receptacle? Totally weird comment dude but good luck with that “small package” you’re seemingly concerned over..

    Wow, you’re about a useless fckhead. How dare you judge what she was doing? It’s a shame she wasn’t living up to your standards, but the truth is, you’re fcking nobody. It’s time for you to just sit back and shut the fck up loser. Jerk off little punks like you are why she is likely searching online, met too many douche nozzles such as yourself.

  • roidaho

    So, what was the excuse for this behavior 200 years ago genius?

  • roidaho

    LOL, not everyone is afraid of guns. It’s the Northwest, we aren’t sissies here.

  • roidaho

    Thats all you got from this you moron?

    Wish our recycling bins were that big, we get these small little square boxes, in fact the county i am in now. Doesn’t give you anything but stickers!

  • ann

    Was this picture of him with a gun on his facebook? You would think she would have looked him up on there before going out with him!!! If he did it, he is one sick puppie

  • xsmokedoutx

    I wouldn’t call her slutty but if you are single with 3 young kids you really shouldn’t take unnecessary risks. Your kids are #1. You had them, now you must sacrifice some things (your dating life) and raise them.

  • xsmokedoutx

    Started before that: We are told we are descended from apes (so why not act like animals?) Life is random, no sanctity. There are no absolutes, everything is relative. We are all special, it’s never your fault…..and this is one of the outcomes

    wow. nice ivory tower you have there, Doc. no wonder people like Charlton exist in our society: people like you make them!

  • mazi

    welcome to the outcome of 20 years of violent video games, over-amped Hollywood action/superhero films, 24-7 news cycle, and a constant stream of opinions trumping facts. we’ve all been complacent for ages as this stuff washed over us. all of us.

  • Roland Cuthbert

    We have become an insanely violent society. I am not sure where all of this going to end.

  • Dennis Latham

    Do they recycle meat in Seattle? Seems kind of stupid to leave remains in a recycle bin like that. It’s like this guy wanted to get caught or something. Doesn’t make much sense. Wonder if he has done this before? You just don’t suddenly kill people and chop them up…unless you are a terrorist.

  • Doctor Frank

    I would like to think a single mother of three young (under 10yrs) children would have nicer things to do than meet up with strangers she found online. That alone is disgusting. We have a blight of slutty single mothers in this country.

  • stickler

    Why would she leave her home to go on a date and not take her purse and cell phone?

  • eire

    She was on a first date with this guy from meeting him from a dating site, be careful out there folks.

    article reads “No other suspects” that means, we have our guy. she had just met the guy threw a dating site, and they were on a first date, sicko cut her head off, evil
