FAIRFAX, Va. (WRIC) — The Fairfax and Harrisonburg police departments held a press conference on Friday to provide details surrounding a suspected serial killer in Northern Virginia.

Anthony Robinson, 35, of Washington, D.C. is believed to be connected to the deaths of at least four women, two of whom have been positively identified. However, the police believe there are more victims.

ABC affiliate WHSV reported in November that the bodies of two women were discovered in an empty lot in Harrisonburg.

Allene Elizabeth Redmon, 54, of Harrisonburg, and Tonita Lorice Smith, 39, of Charlottesville, were both reported missing earlier in November. While their bodies were discovered together, Harrisonburg police believe they were killed separately.

At the time Harrisonburg police arrested Robinson, he was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two felony counts of concealing, transporting or altering a dead body, according to WHSV.

The press conference was prompted by the discovery of human remains in Fairfax on Wednesday, believed to be another of Robinson’s victims.
