Anthony Robinson Biography
Who is Anthony Robinson ?
Anthony Robinson is suspected to have killed at least four women across two different parts of Virginia.
Four bodies that were found in two different locations in Virginia are believed to be the victims of a serial killer, dubbed the “Shopping Cart Killer” by police, according to authorities.
During a news conference on Friday, Fairfax County Sheriff Kevin Davis said the suspect, Anthony Robinson, who was arrested and charged with two deaths last month, may be involved in the deaths of at least other two women.
Anthony Robinson Victims
According to police, the 35-year-old Robinson allegedly met his victims on dating websites and reportedly lured them to local motels. He would then kill them and use shopping carts to transport their bodies to vacant lots to dispose of them.
Two of the victims, Allene Elizabeth “Beth” Redmon, 54, and Tonita Lorice “Nita” Smith, 39, were found dead last month in Harrisonburg. Authorities now believe Robinson is also responsible for the death of a woman they believe to be 29-year-old Cheyenne Brown, as well as another victim, who has yet to be identified, from Fairfax.
Anthony Robinson Investigation
“We are in the process of conducting, along with many other partners, a retrospective investigation to find out where it has been,” Davis said. “And we are going to work with our law enforcement partners, homicide detectives, missing persons detectives, to see if we can identify other victims, families and communities that he has caused harm.”
In the shopping cart, investigators found two bodies, including one they believe to be Brown’s, which has not been fully identified, and the second woman yet to be identified.
“We have a tattoo that her family has positively identified as Cheyenne’s tattoo, and the reason we’re not waiting … until we get a positive 100 percent DNA or dental verification that it is Cheyenne, is because We believe there may be other victims in the area and throughout the state of Virginia, “Davis said. “And we have to act now.”
Anthony Robinson Arrested and Charged
Following Robinson’s arrest, the Washington Metropolitan Police Department contacted neighboring authorities and said the man was the last known contact for Brown, who had previously disappeared.
Although police were initially unable to locate the woman in the area where she was last seen, a clue later led authorities to the same location and they finally noticed a shopping cart in the distance, which they recalled was how Robinson allegedly transported his other victims. after their deaths, police said.
During the news conference, Harrisonburg Police Chief Kelley Warner also spoke, saying that Robinson has not given a statement since his arrest in November.
At the time, Robinson was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in addition to two felonies of concealing, transporting, or tampering with a dead body. The suspect has not been charged in connection with the newly discovered deaths, but police said charges are forthcoming.
A spokesman for the Rockingham County Jail previously told PEOPLE that Robinson is being held without bond. Louis Nagy, Robinson’s attorney, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
A programming hearing related to the first two deaths in Harrisonburg is scheduled for Dec. 27, the Associated Press reported.
