Robin was last seen in Carbondale, Illinois on May 12, 2020.
Her remains were located in Carbondale on October 6, 2020 and was confirmed with identification on December 2, 2020. Her family was notified that Robin was beaten to death and left in an abandoned home on the 600 block of East Park Street in Carbondale until she was found months later.
Her then-boyfriend forty-four-year-old Michael Lee Moore of Franklin County, Illinois was locked up in a Florida prison on unrelated charges. The family was forced to wait about a year until that case was completed, and Moore was finally extradited to Illinois to face First Degree Murder charges against him for Robin Williams death.
Robin was in a Domestic Violence relationship. There was at least one prior police report against Moore before she disappeared.
As of August 2022 court continues.
