Missing Woman Tied to Casino Robbery Suspect
The last time Deanna McCutcheon, 43, reached out to her family was January Fifth. She sent her brother a text message.
âCan you come and pick me up. Can you come and get me. That was the last text,â? Joe Robison recalled.
Robison didnât know where his sister was. She wouldnât say. And he hasnât heard from her since. McCutcheonâs cell phone is inactive. She has not posted to Facebook. No one has heard from her. In February, McCutcheonâs family reported to Columbus Police she was missing. Patricia Robison thinks her daughter may have left Columbus under duress. âShe always loves to help people,â? Patricia Robison said. âAnd I think maybe she met someone that she started to help.â? McCutcheon was known to date Wendell Watkins, 30. Heâs wanted in connection with the October 21, 2012 armed robbery of a Hollywood Casino blackjack winner.

More information on the crime is available through the Ohio Crime Stoppers.
Columbus Police missing persons detective Jon Compson said McCutcheonâs vanishing coincides with the warrant issued for Watkinsâ and his disappearance, but investigators have not determined if the two are connected.
âI think sheâs going to try to let us know where sheâs at. She wonât be able to just leave. Sheâll just let us know where sheâs at.â?
