POLICE in Fairfax, Virginia have revealed the identities of a potential fifth victim of the so-called shopping cart serial killer, and say there may be more.
Alleged serial killer Anthony Robinson, 35, is accused of murdering four women in Virginia and moving their remains in a Target shopping cart.
The police department identified Cheyenne Brown, 29, and Stephanie Harrison, 49, as the women found in a container on December 15.
Chief Kevin Davis said in a press conference on Friday that the killer used a shopping cart to move at least one of the Fairfax victims, who were identified with DNA analysis.
Davis added that Robinson used the dating app Plenty of Fish to find his victims, as well as the Tagged app.
Harrison, of Reeding, California, was last heard from on August 19, 2021 after visiting the Capitol building in Washington DC.
Brown has not been seen or heard from since September 30.
Police believe Robinson may be involved in other crimes and are asking people to contact them if they have any information about him.

"We know a lot but we do need your help about his habits to help uncover additional victims or survivors, and to build a strong accurate case," said Bureau Chief Ed O’Carroll, who joined Davis on Friday.
Robinson has already been charged with the homicides of Allene Elizabeth “Beth” Redmon, 54, of Harrisonburg, and Tonita Lorice Smith, 39, of Charlottesville.
The case captured national headlines after Fairfax Police Chief Davis announced they've connected four murders to Robinson, who is already in jail.
"We're here today to talk about a serial killer - and that is a phrase that I've used sparingly in my three decades in this profession," Davis said last month.
"He's a predator as all serial killers are and it's our collective effort in law enforcement to do everything we can with each other and with the community to identify other places where he has been so we can bring closure and ultimately justice
"Our shopping cart killer does unspeakable things with his victims," Davis added.
The shocking announcement came after two badly decomposed bodies were found in a white container in a wooded area in the Alexandria section of the county on Wednesday.
Detectives believe Robinson met victims on dating websites, met them at local motels, then inflicts trauma on his victims before killing them.
"He transports their bodies to their final resting place literally in a shopping cart."
Earlier this month, Robinson was charged with two homicides in the Harrisonburg district.
Harrisonburg Police reported Redmon and Smith were found dead on November 23 in an undeveloped lot near Linda Lane in Annandale, Virginia.
The women's bodies were found near each other but their deaths occurred at different times.
