MORRILTON, Ark. (KATV) — Boulder police are searching an Arkansas landfill Thursday for evidence in the homicide of a Colorado woman.
Investigators are searching for evidence related to the Ashley Mead homicide. They began searching a landfill in Morrilton, Arkansas, June 6. It is not known how long police will be searching the area.
The Morrilton Police Chief says he cannot confirm what exactly authorities are looking for. Police will be holding a press conference at 3:30 p.m.
Police told KATV earlier this year, a man arrested for killing Mead and dismembering her body may have disposed of some of her remains in Conway while staying with family. Morrilton is approximately 22 miles west of Conway.
The Boulder Police Department had contacted the Conway Police Department in February about the disappearance of the 25-year-old woman and her daughter, who were reported missing February 14 after Ashley Mead did not show up for work.
Boulder police believe Mead was killed by her child's father, Adam Densmore, in Boulder. Investigators say Mead's body was at least partially dismembered just outside of Shreveport, Louisiana.
Densmore was arrested February 15 just west of Tulsa. The missing little girl was found unharmed with her father.
Densmore is charged with first degree murder.
Anyone with information regarding the homicide of Ashley Mead is asked to contact the Boulder Police Department at (303)441-1974. Those who have information but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
