Death of Fairfield woman being investigated

Two Suspects Arrested

CHESTER – Authorities are still working to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of a Fairfield County woman found dead in Chester County on Monday.

Two suspects are in custody.

Linda W. Robinson, 63, was found deceased by deputies with the Chester County Sheriff’s Office at approximately 11:40 a.m. Aug. 2. Authorities said her body was discovered on the side of Carpenter Road, in the Lewis Turnout community of Chester County.

At the time of the discovery, Robinson’s body was unidentified until authorities with the Chester Police Department were called to a Walmart located on JA Cochran Bypass that afternoon to respond to a report of a missing woman.

According to a release from the Chester County Sheriff’s Office, authorities were told that a woman matching Robinson’s description had last been seen at that Walmart earlier that morning, and through coordinated efforts between Chester PD, Chester County SO and the Chester County Coroner’s Office, Robinson was positively identified as the woman found deceased.

Authorities later located Robinson’s vehicle, a blue 2009 Honda Odyssey van, that night at approximately 8 p.m. off of James F. Wherry Road in northern Chester County. The vehicle was impounded and has since been processed by SLED’s Crime Scene Unit.

On Tuesday, Chester County authorities reported that arrest warrants were issued for two individuals, George “Si” Linward Faile and Amber Nicole Harris, in connection with Robinson’s death. By Tuesday night, both individuals had been arrested on murder charges.

Chester County Sheriff D. Max Dorsey, told Chester County media outlets that Faile is a known meth user who was out on bond from a meth trafficking arrest in July. 

Robinson’s cause of death has not been released. Authorities said an autopsy was set for Wednesday.

Authorities are also seeking help from the public in piecing together the events that may have occurred after Robinson went missing. Detectives are searching for any witnesses who may have seen Robinson or her blue van on Monday. Homeowners and businesses in the area are asked to review their video surveillance footage and encouraged to contact detectives if the vehicle was seen passing through their area between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. that day.

Anyone who believes they may have information regarding the investigation may contact detectives at Chester County SO at 803-581-5131 or 803-385-5433.
