Man, 29, Charged With Murder in Popular Stripper's Death
A 29-year-old Winder man has been charged in the death of a popular stripping whose body was found five days after she was last seen with the suspect in Lilburn.
On Thursday, police obtained warrants, charging Charles Thomas Outlaw with malice murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to Lilburn police. Outlaw was in the Gwinnett County jail on unrelated drug charges when he was served with the warrants, police spokesman Bruce Hedley said.
Outlaw is accused of killing Angela Robotte, a 26-year-old stripper who police said was last seen with Outlaw on March 29.
Surveyors working in the area found Robotte's body around 10:30 a.m. on April 3 in a wooded area near the intersection of Lilburn Industrial Way and Arcado Road, according to Gwinnett County police. Police said her body was partially hidden.
Robotte had disappeared after dropping her 3-year old daughter off at a friend's house, police said. So far, officials have not released the cause of the woman’s death.
