Out-of-state landfill search planned in connection to Ashley Mead case

Police plan to search an out-of-state landfill for evidence related to the death and dismemberment of a Boulder mom.

KUSA - Police plan to search an out-of-state landfill for evidence related to the death and dismemberment of a Boulder mom.

It's unclear where this search will happen, as Boulder Police said they will not release specifics "to protect the integrity of this ongoing investigation."

Twenty five-year-old Ashley Mead and her 1-year-old daughter were reported missing on Feb. 14 after Mead did not show up for work.

The following day, a human torso later identified as Mead, was found in a dumpster outside a Walmart in a city outside of Tulsa, Okla.

Adam Densmore, the father of Mead’s young daughter, was arrested soon after and later charged with first-degree murder, tampering with a deceased human body, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.

A judge ruled in February he be held without bond. In March, the district attorney said he will not pursue the death penalty for the 32-year-old, but Densmore would face life in prison if convicted.

Oklahoma was Densmore’s final destination on a journey that started in Boulder on Feb. 12 and continued to Raton, New Mexico and south through the Texas panhandle and to Haughton, Louisiana.

Investigators believe Mead was at least partially dismembered just outside of Shreveport, Louisiana – and authorities believe portions of her remains could be scattered between Boulder and Oklahoma in a purple suitcase.

At the time of his arrest, Densmore and Mead's daughter was with him. She was taken into child protective services and was likely in the car during the drive.

Anyone with information in connection to this case is asked to contact the Boulder Police Department at 303-441-1974.
