He has been charged with the murders of Allene Elizabeth “Beth” Redmon, 54, of Harrisonburg, and Tonita Lorice Smith, 39, of Charlottesville.

Fairfax County Sheriff, Virginia, said this weekend that they believe they have found the remains of another of his victims – Missing DC Woman Cheyenne Brown, 29 years old – and working to dispose of the unidentified remains of the fourth woman for Robinson.

Anthony Guglielmi, chief spokesman for the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Department, told WTOP that they believe the fourth victim may be Stephanie Harrison, a 48-year-old woman from Redding, California, who is missing.

There are no missing persons cases for Harrison in Virginia, but Redding has a case file.

“We believe based on flyers and registration records that she was staying at the same hotel as our killer,” he told the local news agency.

“We’ll be flying out there to get a DNA sample, just to be sure. If it matches the recovered body’s DNA, we’ll have to work backwards to figure out how they intersect. “

Harrison has been described as “very vulnerable and gullible” and is believed to have suffered from schizophrenia.

‘WE ARE HERE TO TALK ABOUT A SERIAL KILLER’

The case gained national attention after Fairfax County Sheriff Kevin Davis announced that they had linked the four murders to Robinson, who was in prison and charged with two murders.

“We’re here today to talk about a serial killer — and that’s a phrase I’ve used very little in my three decades in the profession,” Davis said at Friday’s news conference.

ROBINSON IN CUSTODY

Earlier this month, Robinson was charged with two murders in Harrisonburg County.

Harrisonburg police said Redmon and Smith were found dead on November 23 at an undeveloped estate near Linda Lane in Annandale, Virginia.

The women’s bodies were found close together but their deaths occurred at different times.

Harrisonburg Police Chief Kelley Warner said cell phone records and surveillance video linked Robinson to the woman’s murder.

Robinson was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of concealing, transporting or transforming a corpse in those two murders.

He is currently in prison for those crimes.

Robinson is known to have lived in DC, Prince George County, Maryland, and New York, Davis said.

MAY HAVE ‘MORE IMAGES’

The sheriff said the suspect “had no significant criminal history”, compared with the horror of the crime he was charged with.

“He’s already killed four people and we suspect he has more victims.”
