Remains found in Oklahoma were those of Colorado woman

BOULDER, COLO. (AP) - Officials say the human remains found in a dumpster in east-central Oklahoma were those of a missing 25-year-old Colorado woman.

Ashley Mead of Boulder was reported missing in February along with her 1-year-old daughter. The girl was found with her father, Adam Densmore, near Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mead's torso was found in a suitcase in Okmulgee, about 40 miles south of Tulsa.

The Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed Monday that the remains were Mead's.

Densmore is charged with first-degree murder and tampering. He has not entered a plea. Investigators believe Mead was killed in Boulder and dismembered in Louisiana, but searchers have been unable to find the rest of her remains.

Densmore is jailed without bond and faces a May 4 preliminary hearing.
