MILWAUKEE (TCD) — Police are continuing to search for a missing 19-year-old woman whose car was reportedly found on fire over the weekend just days after a severed leg was located in Lake Michigan.

Sade Carleena Robinson was last seen in Milwaukee on Monday, April 1, and police listed her as a “critically missing person.” The next day, Milwaukee County 911 Dispatch received a call from someone who found a leg “in/near the water” at a park in Cudahy. Cudahy Police were first called about it, but they contacted the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, which is now investigating the case as a homicide.

According to WISN-TV, Robinson’s car was found on fire in an alley Tuesday, April 2. On Friday, April 5, investigators were reportedly called about another body part discovered in a Milwaukee park. Robinson’s friends and family told WISN they found her blanket nearby, too. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports detectives found additional remains on Saturday and Sunday.

Police have not confirmed whether the remains are Robinson’s and if the incidents are connected.

Investigators from the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant April 4 and took a person of interest into custody, who was identified by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as 33-year-old Maxwell Anderson. Detectives allegedly discovered blood evidence at Anderson’s home, though he has not been officially charged with anything.

Anderson’s attorney argued he should be released from custody because he had been held “on nothing more than a written submission to the court indicating that because he supposedly had contact with a missing person and there’s some cell tower suspicion that he continues to remain detained.”

He has reportedly previously been convicted of domestic violence-related crimes.

WISN reports Robinson was in school at Milwaukee Area Technical College and was planning on joining the Air Force. She also worked two jobs. Her co-workers at a pizza restaurant were worried when she failed to show up for work on Tuesday, so they contacted police.

Robinson’s uncle David Scarbrough II told WISN, “You have to prepare for the worst and pray for the best, and worst case scenario, Sade is not with us anymore. Right now, I just want justice from the person that did this to her because nobody deserves to have body parts found in different parts of Wisconsin like this.”
