Police arrested and charged Robinson30, of Lewiston late last week with murder in the death of Christiana Melusine Fesmire, 22, after conducting a lengthy investigation that included an undercover prostitution probe involving Fesmire, Brandi Robinson and a woman from Canada who admitted to engaging in prostitution using Back.
What Fesmire reportedly did to make money had little to do with why she was killed, the affidavit states. Back features an array of services and items for sale and has an adult escort section that Maine Attorney General William Schneider and his counterparts from across the country say is being used to advertise prostitution services.
Godbout said he could not talk specifics about the Fesmire case, which he worked on for months, but said his department has been involved in several investigations involving Back and prostitution. Chris Martin said recently. Delight, the owner of a Bangor escort service that has been around for more than a dozen years, was caught in a Brewer police prostitution sting that resulted in charges against her and six other local women.
All seven women were charged with promotion of prostitution, a Class D misdemeanor. Craigslist removed its erotic services section in May and shut down its adult services section in September The website connects clients to escorts, body rubs, strippers, strip clubs, domination and fetish providers, transsexuals, male escorts, adult jobs and pornographic websites under its adult services section. Back is owned by Village Voice Media, which owns 13 alternative weekly newspapers in the United States.
Schneider said that if Back truly were committed to combating child sex and human trafficking, it would make real changes by eliminating adult escort and similar listings. Police say part of the reason for pursuing prostitution cases is to eradicate crimes that accompany prostitution — robbery, assault, drug offenses and theft.
The Brewer police lieutenant said he also believes there is more crime associated with local prostitution than is being reported. Godbout said Lewiston detectives often investigate prostitution cases as part of other investigations.

The police affidavit states Fesmire arrived at the Highland Avenue apartment building where she had some personal items in a first-floor apartment around a. July 1.
Buddy Robinson, who lived upstairs with his sister, was home at the time and his sister was just leaving with the admitted Canadian prostitute, the court document states. After Robinson visited her boyfriend at his work, the two women returned to Highland Avenue and the Canadian woman was told to go directly upstairs.
Brandi Robinson told police that she became sick after seeing a mop bucket filled with bloody water and realizing that her brother had killed Fesmire.
Brandi Robinson later told the Canadian woman that her brother killed Fesmire and that her body was wrapped in a blanket and put in the trunk of a Lexus owned by her boyfriend. The police affidavit explains that Buddy Robinson beat Fesmire, then filled a bathtub with water and sat on her to kill her.
He disposed of the body and then burned the evidence in a campfire, a conclusion based on statements made by his sister, her boyfriend and the Canadian woman. The car, with blood evidence still inside, was sold to a Lewiston couple but was recovered by detectives.
The accused killer was taken to Androscoggin County Jail after his arrest and is being held without bail until his arraignment, scheduled for Nov.
