"Many have help spread the word looking for this mother and now the worst has come true," the page read. "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. "

Parts of Lyne's dismembered body, including her head, arm and leg, were found wrapped in plastic bags inside a recycling bin less than three miles from Safeco Stadium, where she reportedly was supposed to attend a Mariners game Friday night, the Seattle Times reported .

When detectives interviewed Charlton, he said that he and Lyne did go to the game on Friday and that he had taken her home afterwards. But he also said that he was too drunk to remember anything else that happened that night.

Following his arrest, he also reportedly told police that he was homeless, had an alcohol problem and that he was "not a normal person"  before he asked for an attorney.

According to reports, Lyne and Charlton had been seeing each other for several weeks after meeting online. If the 37-year-old suspect gets convicted, he could face up to almost 28 years in prison.
