TACOMA, Wash. — The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said a body believed to be that of missing woman Kassandra Cantrell was found Tuesday.
The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said Cantrell’s ex-boyfriend, 37-year-old Colin Dudley, was identified as a suspect and arrested Tuesday in connection to her disappearance and suspected murder.
The 33-year-old Parkland woman, who was pregnant at the time of her death, was reported missing on Aug. 27 after she missed a doctor’s appointment.
Cantrell’s vehicle was later found abandoned near the Tacoma Dome. Detectives said earlier this month the case was being investigated as a homicide.
Detectives discovered the human remains Tuesday afternoon along Chambers Creek Road. The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said the remains were wrapped and disposed of over a steep hillside.
Dudley became a suspect after video surveillance showed him and his truck in the area of the remains.
