Corey's crime was discovered because he was too cheap. How?

Corey = H/A/M?

cheap = stingy?

Is Corey's crime a property crime? a personal crime? If it's the latter, does someone die?

Did Corey not pay for a product or service? Did Corey underpay a person who did something for him?

Is it relevant how he murdered Robin? If so, did he shoot her? strangle her? asphyxiate her? poison her? hit her with an object? drown her? beat her to death? run over her with a vehicle? set her on fire?

Relevant why he murdered her?

Did he try to get rid of the body at all? Or did he just leave it at the crime scene?
If the former, did he bury it? burn it? hide it? throw it away? throw it into a body of water? dissolve it in acid?

Did he encase the body in anything before burying it? Relevant?

Was the burial area later dug up to be used for something? (Turning it into a parking lot, or to build a business on it, for instance?)

Did he track anything relevant into his car and not pay to vacuum it?

Did he bury the body in public place? In his own property? In someone else's private property?
Did his being cheap lead to the body being discovered? To leaving some other evidence about his whereabouts? Fines relevant?
WAG: Did he go somewhere to bury the body, not pay for parking, get the ticket with date and hour, which was later used to prove his presence in the place at said date and time?

Is it relevant how long after the murder the discovery happened? If so, hours? Days? Weeks? Months? Years? Millennia? Eons? (If it's either of the latter two, I suspect Corey didn't care.) Relevant how much time passed between the murder and Corey being cheap? And between his being cheap and the discovery of the murder?

Was the body itself eventually discovered? Or rather was it discovered that he had committed the murder through the accumulation of other evidence?

Is it relevant how deep Robin was buried? Is their relationship relevant? Did he bury her in his front yard? Back yard?

Was Corey doing work on the house/property (or had he hired someone to do work on the house/property?) when the murder was discovered? Was he trying to sell the house? Had he already sold it? Leased it?

Was Corey's cheapness related to the purchase of a shovel? Or other burial implements? Lawn-care products?

Is it relevant during which season he attempted to bury Robin?

Is it relevant how long after the murder the discovery happened? Not really, but assume... If so, hours? Days? Weeks? Months? ...this Years? Millennia? Eons? (If it's either of the latter two, I suspect Corey didn't care.) Relevant how much time passed between the murder and Corey being cheap? Assume the same And between his being cheap and the discovery of the murder? This is much more relevant - probably about a week

Was the body itself eventually discovered? Yes Or rather was it discovered that he had committed the murder through the accumulation of other evidence?

Is it relevant how deep Robin was buried? No Is their relationship relevant? No Did he bury her in his front yard? This Back yard?

Was Corey doing work on the house/property (or had he hired someone to do work on the house/property?) when the murder was discovered? Was he trying to sell the house? Had he already sold it? Leased it? No to all

Was Corey's cheapness related to the purchase of a shovel? This Or other burial implements? Lawn-care products?

Is it relevant during which season he attempted to bury Robin? No, but seasons are very relevant!

Did the paint leach anything from the ground/burial area? Did the paint leach into it? Is it relevant whether Corey lives with anyone? Does the colour of the paint matter? Did Corey try to clean up the paint? If so, is the method of his doing so relevant?

Was the murder discovered by a neighbour? The police? A delivery person? A door-to-door salesman? A representative of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? Someone whose job it was to deal with any mess/inconvenience/hazard caused by the paint from the faulty shovel? A family member of Corey's? A friend? A friend of Robin's? A relation of hers?

Was there a relevant change in temperature between the shovelling and the discovery of the crime? Or perhaps before the purchasing of the shovel, was there an unexpected snowfall? I live in Saskatchewan, and the current temperature of -5 C is positively beautiful for this time of year, with the projection that it won't get much colder over the next couple weeks. At the beginning of January it was in the minus 30s. I sometimes forget that snow in the coldest months can be an unexpected thing.

Was Robin buried with/wearing anything that later aided in the discovery of her murder? Is the moniker "Robin" at all relevant, or did you pick the name because it's gender-neutral? Are birds of importance here? Are we dealing with a lonely Caped Crusader?

Was the color mistaken for blood? Was it red? This.

****SPOILER****

Sometime prior to winter, Corey murdered Robin and buried her body in his front yard. When the first snowfall of winter came, Corey shoveled his front sidewalk. However, he had purchased a very cheap red snow shovel, and red paint flaked off the shovel onto the pile of snow. A passerby mistook the paint for blood and called the police, who found Robin's body.

Nicely done everyone - Galfisk for the last bit and the many others who participated. New puzzle as soon as I can think of one.
