Bossier man arrested for CO woman's death, help needed finding remains

Colorado woman's remains may be in Bossier Parish

Boulder, CO - The Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office is assisting with the investigation of a Bossier man charged with 1st Degree Murder for the death of a Boulder, Colorado woman.  According to Lt. Bill Davis, the suspect Adam Densmore was possibly in the Haughton area earlier this week.

The Boulder Police Department is investigating the disappearance of 25-year-old Ashley Mead. Investigators believe she was killed in Boulder and her body at least partially dismembered just outside of Shreveport, Louisiana. There are concerns that some of the victim’s body parts may have been discarded in a variety of communities Densmore passed through after the homicide. 

On Feb. 16th an autopsy was conducted on partial human remains located in a dumpster in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. The Medical Examiner in Oklahoma has not made an official identification; however, investigators from the Boulder Police Department and Okmulgee Police Department have tentatively identified the remains as Mead based on observations made during the autopsy.  Densmore is the father of the victim's child. 


Densmore’s exact travel route between Feb. 12th through Feb. 15th is still under investigation. Detectives currently believe that on the evening of Feb. 12th, Densmore left Boulder, CO and traveled south to Raton, New Mexico. He then continued south and east through the Texas panhandle before arriving in Haughton, Louisiana on the evening of Feb. 13th.  On the morning of Feb. 14th Densmore drove to Conway, Arkansas where he spent the night.  On the morning of Feb. 15th, he left Conway, Arkansas and stopped in Okmulgee, Oklahoma before being located and arrested just west of Tulsa, Oklahoma.


It is believed that a portion of Mead’s body could be in a purple suitcase. If anyone sees a suitcase placed in an odd location, they are asked not to touch it and to contact their local police department immediately. 


Mead and her daughter, Winter were reported missing on Feb. 14th after she did not show up for work. Winter was located on Feb. 15th with her father. She was unharmed and placed in the temporary care of Child Protective Services in Oklahoma.
