Vicksburg native Sade Robinson was killed and dismembered in Milwaukee earlier this month. Police have now discovered a human torso and arm that they believe belongs to Robinson.

The following press release was recently released:

SOUTH MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) is investigating the discovery of human¬†remains Thursday near 3305 Marina Rd., along a remote stretch of tree-lined beach or Lake Michigan, nearly a quarter mile from an apartment complex, where they are believed to have washed ashore.

The torso and arm, found at 7:37 AM by a citizen walking the beach, are believed to be that of Sade Robinson, 19, whom MCSO investigators believe was murdered by Maxwell Anderson, 33, of the 3100 block of S. 39th Street in Milwaukee, on or about April 2.

Our thoughts and prayers and the full support of this agency remain with Robinson’s family and loved ones, as they grieve¬†and process her tragic loss.

MCSO, in partnership with the Milwaukee Police Department and with assistance from 13 other local, state, and federal agencies, a volunteer organization, and a forensics expert, first began investigating Robinson’s death after a severed human leg was discovered in Warnimont Park in Cudahy on April 2. Within a week, several additional remains were discovered in Milwaukee – all believed, though not yet formally confirmed, to be Robinson.

Anderson has been charged with First Degree Intentional Homicide, Mutilating a Corpse, and Arson of Property Other Than Building, in Robinson’s death. All three charges are felonies and carry a combined maximum penalty of life imprisonment.

The investigation into Robinson’s death is ongoing. And even prior to Thursday’s discovery, MCSO had already contracted and scheduled a sonar detection boat to further search Lake Michigan for her remains and additional evidence.
