Robinson was originally arrested on Nov. 23 in Harrisonburg after police found the bodies of two missing women, 54-year-old Allene Elizabeth “Beth” Redmon, of Harrisonburg, and 39-year-old Tonita Lorice Smith, of Charlottesville, in the same vacant lot on Linda Lane.
He was arrested after surveillance footage and phone records connected him to the killings, per Harrisonburg Police Chief Kelley Warner. Warner says the two victims were found near each other in the same lot, but were killed at separate times.
Shopping Cart Serial Killer Case Details
Police also believe Robinson is linked to the death of 29-year-old D.C. woman Cheyenne Brown, whose remains have been preliminarily identified after being found Wednesday near the Moon Inn in Alexandria, along with the remains of a second, unidentified person.
The cases were linked after the Metropolitan Police Department in D.C. called Harrisonburg police a week after Robinson’s arrest and said that they discovered the last known person in contact with Brown was Robinson.
Warner and Fairfax PD’s Ed O’Connell said digital data obtained by investigators showed Brown was in the area of the Moon Inn on the night of Sept. 30, but nothing was found in an original search. However investigators were later able to determine through video surveillance that Brown and Robinson were at the same metro stop in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 30.
Homicide detectives then went back to the original search area on Wednesday, Dec. 15, and spotted a red shopping cart in a wooded area, remembering that the two Harrisonburg victims were transported in a shopping cart.
Next to the shopping cart was a container with human remains of two people. Detectives were able to tentatively ID Brown through a distinctive tattoo on her body with help from family members, but were still waiting on tests for final confirmation.
They have not been able to positively identify the other person.
O’Connell said that detectives were able to determine Brown and Robinson had communicated on a dating website before her death, and that records obtained should lead to the identification of the second victim found in Fairfax County.
Police believe there could also be more victims in addition to the four they’ve located so far.
“There are likely other missing persons that have yet to be located that fit the profile of these victims,” said Fairfax County Police Chief Kevin Davis. “We have a lot of work to do regionally.”
