Thursday evening, Horry County police charged Randy Gale Robinson with murder after serving a search warrant on Sullivan Drive in Murrells Inlet in connection with the disappearance of Angela Pipkin.
Robinson was out on bond after being arrested February 28 and charged with Obstruction of Justice in the same case.
According to the murder arrest warrant, on or about January 17, Randy Robinson, "did with malice aforethought strike Angie Pipkin, victim, about her person which resulted in death", at the home on Sullivan Drive.
The warrant states Robinson disposed of her dismembered body in a body of water in Darlington County. The warrant says that information is based on witness statements and physical evidence gathered during the investigation.
The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, the Darlington County Sheriff's Office, and Horry County police spent Thursday at the Cashua Ferry Landing in Darlington County, searching the Great Pee Dee River for Pipkin's body.
The search was called off around 3:30 Thursday, but her body was not found.
Capt. Sandy Young, with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, said DNR has been told the search there will not be resuming.
Robinson is expected to make an initial appearance in court before going before a circuit court judge for his bond hearing at a later time.
Angie Pipkin was last seen January 16, when her grandfather dropped her off at the IGA in Aynor to meet a friend.
Her family reported her missing on January 22.
