A Milwaukee, Wisconsin man was charged on Friday in connection to the death of 19-year-old Sade Robinson who went missing on April 1.

Maxwell Anderson, 33, was arrested on April 4 after a traffic stop. Anderson was then identified as a person of interest in the missing person case that involved Robinson.

Anderson is being charged with the following:

  • first-degree intentional homicide
  • mutilating a corpse
  • arson property other than a building

Around 5:29 p.m. on April 3 Milwaukee County 911 dispatch received a call from Cudahy Police Department regarding a report of a severed leg. It was located near the golf course at Warnimont Park and the leg was amputated from the hip down. The leg was of a female who was African-American, Milwaukee Police Department said during a press conference on Friday.

At a joint press conference Friday morning with the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office and the Milwaukee Police Department, officials said a search for remains continues and an investigation into a motive remain active.

The police department does not know the relationship between Anderson and Robinson but does believe that the two met at Anderson’s place of employment. A criminal complaint states that Anderson and Robinson met April 1 to go on a first date with each other.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Robinson family, friends and the Milwaukee community who have embraced this family,” Milwaukee County Sheriff Denita Ball said during the conference. “We are sorry for your loss, it’s such a tragic incident.”
