Haughton man faces murder charge in Colorado

Suspect charged in death & dismemberment of his child's mother

BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. - A Haughton native will be held over for trial in the February death and dismemberment of the mother of his child, according to the Boulder County Colorado District Attorney’s office.

Adam Dunsmore has been held without bond since his February 17, 2017 arrest in the death of 25-year-old Ashley Mead of Boulder. Densmore is the father of Mead's 1-year-old daughter.

Densmore is accused of driving Mead’s body to Louisiana, where he at least partially dismembered it. Her torso was found in a suitcase found in a dumpster in Oklahoma, and surveillance video shows him taking a trash bag out of his car and putting it in an Arkansas dumpster the same day.

After a two-day preliminary examination, Boulder Colorado District Judge Ingrid Bakke upheld the charges of first degree murder, tampering with a deceased human body, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse. Densmore will continue to be held without bond.

Densmore’s arraignment has been set for Sept. 22. The case is being prosecuted by Boulder County 1st Assistant District Attorney Katarina Booth.
