‘Shopping Cart Killer’ is the only person of interest in the DC homicide – NBC4 Washington

A DC police spokesman confirmed Tuesday that Anthony Eugene Robinson – the accused “caddy killer” – is the only person of interest in a homicide investigation in the district.

News4 previously reported that the death of DC resident Sonya Champ, 40, was linked to the Virginia “cart killer” investigation. Champ’s death was initially ruled undetermined, but the DC Chief Medical Examiner’s Office reclassified it as a homicide in recent weeks.

Anthony Robinson, suspected of being the ‘cart killer’ for the way he allegedly disposed of his victims, has been linked to the murders of four women so far. News4’s Aimee Cho reports that police believe he may have also murdered a fifth woman.

Robinson, dubbed the “Caddy Killer” for the way he allegedly disposed of the bodies of his victims, has been linked to the deaths of four other women, investigators have said. Authorities say he brutalized and killed women he met on dating sites and used a shopping cart to transport their bodies.

However, this is the first Robinson-related death to be ruled a homicide. In Harrisonburg, Va., the deaths of two women last November were ruled “undetermined” by the medical examiner’s office.

Robinson, a DC resident, is being held without bond in Harrisonburg. He is charged with two counts of first degree murder and two counts of concealing, transporting or altering a corpse.

And in Northern Virginia, the medical examiner’s office is still working to determine the causes of death of two women found dead in Fairfax County last December. Fairfax County Police said Tuesday there were no updates to the death investigations they were handling. Robinson has still not been charged in the Fairfax cases.

Champ’s body was found ahead of all other victims, on September 7, 2021. At approximately 11:30 a.m. that day, officers were called to the 200 block of F Street NE near Union Station for the report. of an unconscious person. Officers arrived to find Champ’s body in a shopping cart.

A relative said Champ was an outgoing woman who loved her family.
