Fourth of five bodies found in barrels identified

HARRISONVILLE, Mo. - Authorities have identified the fourth of five female bodies found stuffed in barrels in Kansas and Missouri.

The body of Sheila Dale Faith, 51, of Fullerton, Calif., was one of three found June 5 in a Raymore storage locker rented by John Edward Robinson Sr., prosecutor Chris Koster said Friday.

The identification was made by new dental records, he said. Authorities were trying to determine whether the remaining unidentified body was Faith's daughter, Debbie.

Robinson, 56, of Olathe, Kan., has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder, and is being held on $5 million bond.

Two other bodies were found June 3 on a tract owned by Robinson near La Cygne, Kan., about 40 miles west of Raymore. The bodies were in barrels found sitting on top of the ground.

Investigators have also discovered links between Robinson and four people - three women and an infant - missing since the mid-1980s. None of those women has been identified as being among the victims in the barrels.
