A Town of Beloit man was arrested on suspicion of first-degree intentional homicide for the death of a Beloit woman.

The Rock County Sheriff’s Office said the body of Brandy Lee Carroll, 19, was found by deputies as they searched 38-year-old Andre Robinson’s garage on May 9. She had been reported missing to Beloit police the same day.

Deputies said they were called to 1966 Dewey Ave. by someone from out of state who was concerned about the residents at that address after getting a call from Robinson saying there had been a fight at the house.

Robinson came to the house after deputies arrived and allowed them in. The deputies said they found evidence of a fight and later spotted a person’s foot through the overhead garage door windows.

Robinson attempted to flee while deputies tried to handcuff him.

Investigators said Robinson and Carroll met through a social media site, and that Robinson picked Carroll up at her home early on May 9 and brought her back to his place. At some point after arriving at his house, a fight started between the two that ended in the basement where Carroll died, according to the report.

Robinson told deputies he was going to dispose of the body at a later time because he had to work that morning. Robinson had gone to work that morning but left early when he was notified that police were at his house.

Robinson was also arrested on suspicion of hiding a corpse. He’s scheduled to appear in court Monday.
