Criminal complaint Maxwell Anderson.

The father and family of suspect Maxwell Anderson are speaking out for the first time since Anderson was accused of the dismemberment murder of college student Sade Robinson.

The “statement from Steven Anderson” was sent to Heavy’s journalist by the law firm representing Anderson, Kuchler & Cotton, LLC. It’s the first statement from the Anderson family since the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s office filed murder and dismemberment charges against Anderson, 33, a bartender, in the homicide of Robinson, a criminal justice student who disappeared in early April.

On April 12, Anderson, who was working as a bartender at Victor’s Nightclub, was criminally charged with first-degree intentional homicide and mutilating a corpse, according to the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department. The complaint says that Anderson and Robinson went on a “first date” with each other the night before she disappeared. It says that Life360 and cell phone evidence show that Robinson’s cell phone was pinpointed in the area of Anderson’s home.

Police then began discovering body parts throughout Cudahy and the City of Milwaukee and believe that a severed leg found in Warnimont Park belonged to Robinson. The complaint says that they also found Robinson’s car burning in the City of Milwaukee, and a witness and video evidence accuse Anderson of being near that scene. Read the complaint in full here.

Anderson’s father runs a prominent insurance group in Waukesha County.
