The remains have not been officially identified, but they have been tentatively identified as the remains of Ashley Mead, according to Boulder Police.
Their investigation centers around the disappearance of 25-year-old Ashley Mead. The arrest affidavit remains sealed, police said.
Boulder Police say investigators believe that parts of the body of a mother who had been reported missing earlier this week could be scattered across the country.
According to police, Densmore drove through the Texas panhandle, stopped in Haughton, Louisiana, and stayed overnight in Conway, Arkansas before traveling to Oklahoma.
Friday, Boulder police tweeted a picture of a purple suitcase and said they believe it's possible more of Mead's remains may have been left in a similar suitcase.
Ashley Mead was reported missing after she didn't show up for work.
Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly said the human remains discovered in a dumpster not far from where Densmore was arrested have not yet been identified, but that police are presuming Mead is dead.
In a news release issued today, Boulder police said they believe Mead was killed in Boulder, but then at least partially dismembered outside of Shreveport. La.
Officers say they aren't certain exactly where Densmore traveled, but say they believe he left Boulder on February 12, then drove south to Raton, N.M. The next day he drove to Conway, Arkansas where he spent the night.
Around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Densmore was found with Winter and arrested just west of Tulsa on suspicion of violating a custody agreement, police said. Police ask anyone that sees a suitcase placed in an odd location not to touch it and to contact their local police department immediately.
Anyone with information is asked to call Boulder police at 303-441-1974 or Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Those submitting tips through Crime Stoppers that lead to the arrest and filing of charges on a suspect (s) may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 from Crime Stoppers.
