Man Has Been Charged With the Murder of a 19-year-old Woman Whose Body Was Found in the Milwaukee Area

A guy from Milwaukee was charged with murder and mutilating a corpse on Friday. This came after the leg of a missing 19-year-old woman was found earlier this month, and police think it belongs to her.

Authorities say 33-year-old Maxwell Anderson was charged Friday morning. He was arrested last week and was a person of interest in the disappearance of Sade Robinson.

At a news conference on April 2, Milwaukee County Sheriff Denita Ball said that the severed leg had been found and was thought to belong to Robinson.

On April 5 and 6, Milwaukee police also found human remains in three places, including by train tracks. Chief Jeffrey Norman, the Milwaukee Police Department, said that those bodies have not yet been identified.

Norman said, “This is a terrible tragedy.” He and Ball both said that their offices were thinking about and praying for the Robinson family.

Ball said that Anderson was charged by the district attorney’s office with first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a body, and setting fire to property other than a building.

Police in Milwaukee asked the public for help on April 3 to find Robinson, who had not been seen since April 1 and was thought to be “critically missing.”

A “person of interest” in the case was Anderson on April 4, two days after the leg was found. Ball said that Anderson was taken after a traffic stop. The police searched his house, but they wouldn’t say what they found on Friday.

Officials also didn’t say what the motivation was because the investigation is still going on.

Ball said that it was possible that Robinson and Anderson met at Anderson’s workplace, but that they were still working to prove that.

Ball said that the case is still going on and that police are still looking for Robinson’s body. She said that investigators don’t know of anyone else who was engaged.

“We don’t believe that there are any other victims out there, and that the person who is responsible for this heinous crime has been arrested,” said Ball.

An attorney who was listed as representing Anderson did not reply right away to a late Friday evening request for comment. Court and jail records show that Anderson was ordered to be held in jail without a $5 million bail.

“This is justice for Sade,” Robinson’s mother, Sheena Scarbrough, told NBC station WTMJ in Milwaukee on Friday about the charges.

Family members said they will keep looking for the body of their loved one.
