(KSL News) The search at the Salt Lake City landfill has eerie similarities to a murder investigation in Rhode Island.
Police near Providence spent two weeks sifting through garbage to find the remains of three women killed over the past year and a half.
Investigators didn't even realize the women's disappearances were related until a month ago, when a suspect was arrested on unrelated charges.
Police say the man discarded the victims' remains at various dumpsters around town.
After an exhaustive search of the city dump using cadaver dogs, police DID find a small piece of tissue from one victim.
That discovery led to the filing of formal murder charges.
