Vicksburg police were tipped off by an anonymous source that the suspect of an early morning robbery of the Quick Mart on Washington Street was at the bus station. Andre Durant Walker was spotted sitting in a silver 2015 Chrysler 200 and was arrested without incident.

During questioning, Walker, 38, was asked about his missing girlfriend, 35-year-old Maria Cardin of Farmerville, La. She had been missing for two days. Walker soon told Vicksburg investigators where Cardin could be found. Law enforcement officers went to the location, a house in the 700 block of Vergie Page Road in Farmerville, and found her lifeless body.
