2 women identified in suspected Virginia shopping cart serial killer investigation

(WJLA) — As Fairfax County police continue to investigate a suspected serial killer, the department may have a lead after identifying two more victims, whom the suspect may have met on dating apps.

The two women have been identified as Cheyenne Brown, 29, of Washington DC, and Stephanie Harrison, 48, of California.

Their remains were found in a shipping container near a motel in Alexandria, Virginia on Dec. 15, authorities said.

“Our division interacted with Stephanie’s daughter, Destiny, who told us she was a beloved mother and an even better grandmother,” Fairfax County Police Department Chief Kevin Davis said. added saying, “She was the nicest person and helped everyone and would give you her last penny. And her mom said she wanted everyone to know that Cheyenne had a huge heart, that she trusted and considered everyone as her friend.

Davis says Anthony Eugene Robinson, who is from New York, remains their prime suspect in these homicides.

A fifth death inquest uncovered another woman who was found dead in a shopping cart in Washington DC, wearing only a blanket.

Brown was last seen with Robinson when she was reported missing in October.

Detectives believe Robinson used dating apps like “Plenty of Fish” and “Tagged” to track down his victims.

Investigators said they are still looking for survivors to gather more information.

“Especially the missing women who might fit the profile of our four victims,” ​​Davis said.

“What we really need is information about previous contacts. Because this case is not about shopping carts, this is a serial killer,” said Ed O’Carroll, commander in chief of the Bureau of Major Crimes, Cybercrime and Forensics.
