A human arm discovered on an Illinois beach has been identified as belonging to Sade Robinson, a 19-year-old Milwaukee woman who was dismembered after a date with Maxwell Anderson, the man charged with her murder.

On May 11, a passerby found the arm on Waukegan Municipal Beach. DNA testing confirmed it belonged to Robinson, as announced by the Lake County Coroner’s Office. The beach is roughly 50 miles from Milwaukee. Robinson’s family received the news on Tuesday.

“On behalf of the Lake County Coroner’s Office, I want to express our sincere condolences to Sade’s family and friends who continue to endure this tragic loss,” said Coroner Jennifer Banek.

Attorney Verona Swanigan, representing the family, conveyed the grief of Robinson’s mother, Sheena Scarbrough, who feels “devastated and constantly tortured by this accumulating news of her daughter’s heinous murder.”

In April, other remains, including a torso, another arm, a severed right leg, and a foot with pink nail polish, were discovered in various locations. Robinson’s burned 2020 Honda Civic was found on April 2.

Maxwell Anderson, 33, of Milwaukee, was arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse, and arson. The two had gone on a date on April 1. Video evidence allegedly shows Anderson near the scene of the severed leg and a burning vehicle.

Anderson has pleaded not guilty and is held on $5 million bail. Robinson’s family demands his confession to locate the rest of her remains. Scarbrough expressed her agony, saying, “I want my daughter’s remains! Sade should not have to spend eternity lost because of Anderson’s evil agenda.”
