FBI Richmond Joins Lancaster and Northumberland County Sheriff’s Office’s Investigation Into 2013 Cold Case

March 9, 2020, marks the seven-year anniversary of the disappearance of Marcus Andrapolis Robinson, an Iraqi war veteran and long-time resident of Northumberland County, Virginia. Marcus, 29 years-old at the time he disappeared, was last seen at his parent’s home in Heathsville, Virginia, on March 9, 2013. Investigators believe Marcus drove around the Georgetown area of Heathsville in his white 2006 Lincoln Town car that day, prior to a planned meeting with identified parties on Davis Mill Road in Lancaster County, Virginia, and has not been seen since. His vehicle was discovered on March 10, 2013, in Northumberland County, fully engulfed in flames. Investigation to date revealed the fire was intentionally set and there was evidence of a gun discharged inside of the vehicle; however Marcus was not located at the scene.

Marcus Robinson is considered a homicide victim, and investigators believe that those responsible for this crime disposed of his body.

The FBI Richmond Field Office, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, and the Northumberland County Sheriff’s Office encourages anyone with information about this crime to contact authorities immediately—no bit of information is insignificant to any investigation. An FBI Seeking Information poster has been created and published on the FBI’s main webpage
