Police find more remains in dismembered-body case

A photo of Kelsey Louise Felker at age 15. Ms. Felker, 24, was killed in late January, 2013; her dismembered torso was found in a Kitchener dumpster.


Police say more human remains have been discovered as they continue investigating the case of a woman's torso found dumped in a trash can in southwestern Ontario.

Waterloo Regional Police spokesman Olaf Heinzel says additional remains were recovered Thursday and Friday at two other locations in Kitchener.

A torso later identified as the remains of 24-year-old Kelsey Louise Felker was found in a trash bin behind an apartment building last Saturday in the city.

Mr. Heinzel would not provide details on the new discovery out of respect for the family, saying only that the remains have been transported to Hamilton for an autopsy and forensic analysis.

He says investigators are looking into the possibility there is a third scene with more body parts.

Stephen Johnson, 37, of Kitchener, has been charged with first-degree murder and indignity to a human body in connection with Felker's death.

He is being held in custody pending a court appearance set for Feb. 15.
