Police in Oregon announced they have recovered the remains of a dismembered woman at a landfill after searching for “several days.”

Kara Taylor, 49, left a home in Oregon City around 11 p.m. on July 25. She was reported missing by Jamon Peter Fritsch — the man who is now indicted on murder charges in her death — two days later.

Her disappearance was considered suspicious and a search warrant executed at the home where both she and Fritsch lived found blood in a bathroom, bathtub, walls and on a saw, according to Oregon City police. Investigators said they later determined that after Taylor supposedly went missing but before Fristch reported it to police, Fritsch made several trips to Home Depot to buy zip ties, a saw blade, a black tote and contractor bags.

Police arrested Fritsch on charges of second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse on Aug. 8. He admitted to killing and dismembering Taylor and disposing of her body parts, according to police. Fritsch was formally indicted on the charges on Monday, court records show.

On Aug. 11, investigators began searching the Coffin Butte Landfill in Corvallis, about 70 miles from where Taylor was reported missing, police said in a press release.

“After having searched for several days, investigators discovered human remains at the site, presumed to be Kara Taylor. The remains were transported to the Clackamas County Medical Examiner’s Office for further examination and positive identification,” police wrote.
