Woman Lets Dog Out, Finds Dead Body In Backyard

A woman made a disturbing discovery in her backyard when she let her dog outside.

When a Dormont, Pennsylvania, woman let her dog out in her backyard on Jan. 5, she found the body of 35-year-old Chaz Robinson, WTAE reports. Robinson had been fatally shot the night before.

Timothy Bevan, the 23-year-old suspect in Robinson's murder, surrendered to police on Jan. 6.

Court papers say Robinson stole marijuana from Bevan and ran away. Bevan then chased Robinson, while firing his gun at him.

Robinson's body had at least two gunshot wounds, detectives say.

The victim's daughter Chasity spoke to WPXI after her father was found dead.

"That's my dad," she told WPXI. "I'm not getting another dad. That was my best friend."

She added: "My dad is good to people. Everybody loved my dad. I'm going to miss him, man. I don't know what I'm going to do without him."

Following the discovery of Robinson's body, police identified Bevan as the suspect in his murder. Bevan turned himself in to police and is being held in jail awaiting arraignment for homicide charges, WPXI reports.

Residents of the neighborhood told WTAE they heard gunshots the night Robinson was killed.

"Around 8 o'clock, I heard fireworks, and I looked out the window and I didn't see nothing," neighbor Richard Maier said. "I just heard fireworks."
