IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. (WHEC) — Two developments happened Wednesday in the suspicious death of a woman in Irondequoit.

First, Irondequoit Police say the remains discovered in Durand Lake Monday are identified as Lisa Shuler. Police say Shuler's body was first found dismembered outside her home on Culver Road last week.

Second, News10NBC tracked down details of when, where and why her boyfriend, Seth Larson, was stopped by police after Shuler's death.

Larson was pulled over for speeding by police in Maryland at 12:54 p.m. on Tuesday, May 25.

The traffic stop happened at least four hours before Shuler's body was discovered. Irondequoit Police say they weren't dispatched to Shuler's home until about 5 p.m. on May 25. IPD did not publicly announce Larson's name or that he was a person of interest until Wednesday, May 26.

The traffic stop happened five hours south of Rochester on Interstate 68 in the city of Cumberland, Maryland. That's just south of the Pennsylvania border. 

Detective Harold Dixon with the Cumberland City Police told me it was a standard speeding stop. Dixon said Cumberland Police shared everything they know and have with New York State Police. 

I was not able to confirm if that includes body camera or dashboard camera video. 

The traffic stop in Maryland is the last known location of Larson.

Wednesday, Irondequoit Police released new photos of Larson.

They are security camera images that show Larson at a Rochester area store on May 24 and the car he was driving that day. The image of Larson shows him in a mask and hat and it appears that he's holding a bag full of tennis balls. 

Police say Larson is a person of interest in Shuler's death. 

Part of her remains were found in Durand Lake Monday. The location is exactly one mile from the home on Culver Road where police first discovered Shuler's body.
