According to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Louisville Courier Journal, police executing search warrants allegedly found video on Roberts’ phone of the victim in the front seat of his truck that was shot the day before her dumped body was discovered.
According to the affidavit, Brown told detectives the victim was “physically incapacitated” when he tried to have sex with her so he removed her from the truck and put her in the backyard where she was later found dead.
Law enforcement officials have not disclosed how they identified Roberts as a suspect in the case.
