A second body part may have been found in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, just days after a human leg was discovered.

Sheriff’s officials accuse Milwaukee bartender Maxwell Anderson, 33, of murdering and mutilating missing college student Sade Robinson, and they say the first body part was likely her. Learn more about him here.

On April 12, he was formally accused of murdering Robinson and mutilating her body, the Sheriff’s Department wrote in a statement, adding that Anderson and Robinson went out to dinner the night before the first body part was found.

According to WISN-TV, a “possible body part” was found on April 5 “in the city’s Walnut Hill neighborhood” near North 30th Street and West Lisbon Avenue.

Anderson appeared in a Milwaukee County courtroom on April 9, where a judge allowed an extra 72 hours to hold him. He has not been criminally charged.

That comes just three days after the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that a severed human leg was discovered at Warnimont Park. It’s not yet clear whether the discoveries are related. However, according to WISN, the area of 30th and Lisbon “is where a car belonging to missing 19-year-old Sade Carleena Robinson was found torched” on April 2.

“MCSO can confirm that a human leg was discovered in or near the water today at Warnimont Park, east of the golf course by the pump house,” The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department’s spokesman wrote in an email to Heavy. “Cudahy Police were initially notified and in turn notified the Sheriff’s Office, which is leading the investigation.”

According to the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department, in an April 5 news release, “On Thursday, April 4, after securing a search warrant, MCSO detectives and deputy sheriffs converged on a residence on Milwaukee’s south side, in the area of S. 39th Street and W. Oklahoma Ave., and took a person of interest into custody for questioning.” The person of interest’s name was not released.

Sheriff’s officials have not released the name of the victim or any motive.

The Severed Leg Was Discovered by a Person Who Was Patronizing Warnimont Park, the Sheriff’s Department Says

James Burnett, the spokesman for the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department, wrote in an email to Heavy that, just before 5:30 p.m. on April 2, the Milwaukee County Dispatch (911 call) Center “was notified about the discovery of a leg in/near the water at Warnimont Park, east of the golf course by the pump house.”

Cudahy Police “were initially notified and in turn notified the Sheriff’s Office, which is leading the investigation,” he wrote. “Again, the leg was confirmed to be human. And, as the investigation continues and gains steam, I can clarify to you that the limb was discovered by an individual patronizing the park – walking, etc.”

“At this time, the aftermath of this discovery is categorized as a death investigation, albeit suspicious,” Burnett wrote, when asked whether the leg is being investigated as a homicide.” However, in an April 6 update, the Sheriff’s Department wrote that the leg discovery is now being investigated as a homicide.

In a statement posted to their Facebook page, Cudahy police wrote, “Cudahy police responded to a call on Tuesday, April 2 of a report of a severed leg near Lake Michigan in Warnimont Park. Cudahy Police notified the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, who responded to the scene. Milwaukee County Sherriff’s Office is handling the investigation and Cudahy police will assist the sheriff’s office with their investigation, as needed. If anyone has any information regarding this investigation please contact with Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office at 414-278-4788.”
