‘Shopping Cart Killer’ Arrested In Virgina
Virginia police have arrested one suspect who may be responsible for at least four deaths in the “Shopping Cart Killer” case.
Harrisonburg Police Chief Kelley Warner and Fairfax County Police Chief Kevin Davis held a joint press conference Friday and said that the evidence pointed toward 35-year-old Anthony Robinson being the “Shopping Cart Killer.” Robinson was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of concealing, transporting, and altering a dead body on Nov. 23, police said.
The killer gained the title “Shopping Cart Killer” by looking for potential victims on an online dating site then meeting them at motels, killing them, and then using a shopping cart to move the bodies. Police believe Robinson to be responsible for at least four murders in Virginia.
Robinson addresses in New York, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., suggesting that he could be responsible for other deaths or disappearances that authorities are currently looking into.
Cheyenne Brown, 29, has been identified as one of the victims and was pregnant at the time of her disappearance in Washington, D.C. Robinson met Brown on a dating site and was last seen alive on video surveillance at the Huntington metro stop with Robinson.
Police are urging anyone who knows Robinson or may have more information on the “Shopping Cart Killer” to come forward.
