Internet 'Slave Master' Linked to Two more Missing Women

Published June 16th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

A California woman and her daughter were added Thursday to the growing list of possible victims of Internet stalker and alleged serial killer John Edward Robinson, police said. 

Sheila Dale Faith and her daughter Debbie Faith -- missing since the mid-1990s -- had known ties to Robinson when they moved to the Kansas/Oklahoma area in 1994 from Fullerton, California, Kansas homicide detectives said. 

The pair lived in Colorado for several months in the interim. 

The mother was 45. Her daughter, then 16, had been dependent on a wheelchair since birth. 

Robinson was charged Tuesday with the murders of five women -- two bodies were found stuffed in barrels on an abandoned farm in Kansas, and three at a storage facility he owned in Missouri. 

He was arrested on June 2nd after allegedly assaulting two women that he met for sadomasochistic sex encounters at a motel in Lenexa, Kansas. 

Police say Robinson, who posed as a successful businessman, lured his prey with pledges of lucrative jobs or kinky sex by Internet -- where he went by the web name of "Slave Master" -- then bludgeoned them to death, and hid their corpses in barrels. 

Three of the women whose bodies were recovered have now been identified as Suzette Trouten, 28, from Michigan, Izabella Lewicka, a 22-year-old Polish immigrant, and Beverly Bonner, a 49-year-old librarian. 

But the 56-year-old has also been linked with three other missing women, and a five-year-old infant - KANSAS CITY (AFP)
