Infamous Renton crime to make TV debut

It’s been over two years since a man was found guilty for murdering and dismembering Renton mother of three Ingrid Lyne, after the two met on a dating website. Now the series premiere of a new show “Sex and Murder” will detail the case on network television.

Lyne was reported missing in April 2016 after going to a Mariners game on a date. On the same day she was reported missing, her partial body remains were found in a recycling bin in Seattle’s Central District. Premiering on March 16, the episode titled “Date with the Devil” will include audio of 911 calls, video of interrogations and an interview with the man who tragically discovered body parts at Lyne’s Renton Highlands home.

The case, which happened in 2016, rocked Renton at the time. Hundreds turned out for her candlelight vigil and procession at St. Matthews Church, as previously reported in Renton Reporter.

“She was a great mother, she was a great friend, she was a great person,” Lyne’s friend Jim Morrell said in 2016, adding that she loved sports and had “a biting, sharp, witty, funny sense of humor.”

The network airing the episode on Lyne’s case, HLN, describes it as follows:

“Recently divorced mom-of-three Ingrid Lyne dips her toes back into the dating scene and meets a man online. But her date at a baseball game would be her last. The next day, Seattle residents and investigators are shocked by one of the most chilling crime scenes ever seen.”

In January 2018, John Robert Charlton was sentenced to nearly 28 years in prison for Lyne’s murder, after changing his plea from not guilty to guilty in late 2017, as previously reported by Renton Reporter.

The episode premieres 9 p.m., Monday, March 16, on HLN, available on most American cable systems, on go.cnn.com for Pay-TV subscribers, and Sling TV.
