Do all the pieces seem to fit? Authorities in Ontario are working to determine if the body parts found in a trash can wheeled through a neighborhood by Carmen Montenegro are those of her boyfriend, who was reported missing in early May. Ontario police Sgt. Jeff Crittenden said investigators were checking into the whereabouts of one of Montenegro's ex-boyfriends who was reported missing by his family after disappearing May 1, according to the Associated Press.

Montenegro was arrested after residents of the Ontario neighborhood reported seeing her with the 30-gallon plastic trash container. A relative of Montenegro's who lives in the area said her cousin had come to her asking for help to dispose of the body parts. She was charged with murder on Tuesday.
