Remains found at 2 Seattle sites from same man

Seattle police on Wednesday said that human remains found in two locations at different times last year are those of the same man.

The victim was identified as Donald S. Meyer, 53, who disappeared in June 2011. Blood stains were found in his Ballard apartment, Seattle police spokesman Sean Whitcomb told KING5 on Wednesday.

In July, an employee found human remains on a conveyor belt in a Georgetown recycling plant. Those remains were identified as Meyer.

Then in December, a badly decomposed human leg bone and foot were found in a black plastic bag under the Ship Canal Bridge.

Seattle police say it has been determined that those remains also belonged to Meyer.

KING5 on Wednesday said Meyer was suspected of being a marijuana dealer. No arrests have been made in the case.
