Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Robinson's boyfriend, told authorities that she left their residence in Homestead, Florida to walk to work on May 10, 1993 at approximately 15:30. The couple resided on southwest 308th Street with several roommates. Robinson was employed at Todd's Restaurant at 197th Street and South Dixie Highway. Robinson never arrived for her 17:00 work shift and has not been seen again.
The manager at Todd's Restaurant told authorities that Robinson left two paychecks and mail unclaimed at the business. The boyfriend allegedly abused Robinson at the time. Robinson's mother said that the couple often had problems and her daughter returned to North Carolina twice; once in December 1992 and again in May 1993 shortly before her disappearance.
Robinson's father, who resided in Oklahoma in 1993, told investigators that his daughter attempted to call him collect at approximately 01:30 on May 11, which was the time her restaurant shift would have ended for the night. Her father stated that he did not accept the charges and never spoke to Robinson, saying they had a phone conversation several days earlier. Authorities said that Robinson's father never heard his daughter's voice during the call and it is not known if she actually placed the call to Oklahoma.
Robinson's mother said that her daughter may have been preparing to return to to her family's home once again shortly before her May 10 disappearance. Robinson asked her attorney in North Carolina to forward an insurance settlement check worth more than $7000 to Todd's Restaurant in Homestead. Robinson's roommates in Florida reportedly told law enforcement officials that she said she planned to return to North Carolina after the check arrived.
Foul play is suspected in Robinson's disappearance.
In July 19, 2006, Christopher Michael Phillips was charged in the death of Trinity Nicole Robinson. Phillips was her boyfriend the time of her disappearance.
