Bob Hodge killed at home, motor vehicle allegedly stolen

Earl ‘Bob’ Hodge

New information into Tuesday night’s murder of Earl ‘Bob’ Hodge indicates that he was also robbed.

BVI News understands that Hodge’s body was found in the driveway of his Hannah’s Estate residence and his motor vehicle was reportedly stolen at the time of the murder.

It’s also understood that Hodge’s wife and a number of family members were present at the scene when police arrived. 

However, it’s unclear whether they were at the house at the exact time Hodge was murdered.

BVI News has not yet ascertained where on Hodge’s body he was shot but residents in the area reported hearing multiple firearm explosions on the ill-fated night of February 9.

What police say

According to the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF), the incident happened around 8 pm and no one else was injured.

“Police are asking persons who have information that can assist homicide detectives in their investigation to contact at RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 368-9339,” the RVIPF said in a press statement Wednesday morning.

Hodge, in the meantime, has been a person of interest for the United States Justice Department who accused him of participating in a regional drug trafficking organisation.

The US has made at least three unsuccessful attempts to have Hodge extradited for his alleged crimes.

    Steal the car, a good way to disguise the real motive for killing someone who knows too much. Not fooling anyone.

    Don’t fall for the coverups.

    This murder allegedly occurred around 8pm and didn’t make news until around 11pm.

    When were the police and ambulance called?

    That missing vehicle story sounds like a sham.

  9. Come on now says:

    Stolen car? RIGHT, TELL IT TO THE MARINES. NO DAMN ROBBERY EITHER. STRAIGHT UP, EVERYONE ON THE ISLAND KNOW HOW DUDE WAS ROLLING AND WHAT WAS ROLLING WITH DUDE. SOMEONE DECIDE TO MAKE THE CALL AND HAD HIM ERASED FROM THE GAME PERMANENTLY. IN THAT WORLD, YOU DO HARD PRISON TIME OR YOU PUSH UP DAISIES. THAT IS THE RULE OF THE GAME. HE FOUGHT AND ESCAPE DOING HARD PRISON TIME IN CLUB FEDS, NOW HE WILL BE PUSHING UP DAISIES.

  10. LMAO says:

    have anyone thought that just maybe one of the family members killed him because of a disagreement of some sought. let someone drive away with the vehicle to make it look like a robbery. when police arrive they meet family members at the scene?? Sooo all of them travel together in one vehicle. How many members knew about his death before police arrive. Suspicious isn’t it??

    The Government said there’s corruption in Nature’s Little Secret, an inquiry has started and men are dropping like flies, I guess this is how we clean up the corruption.
    I believe someone in Government is involved in all this.
    At the end of this investigation, some going to prison for a while,some will run away and hide out in Uncle Sam’s house, and quite a few will be heading to dove cot.
    This is only the head start, last year was covid this is it’s going to be murders, by the looks of things maybe 10 murders per month.
    As so we nice in the Bee wee eye.

    Lets answer the question – who have the most to gain from this man’s death. in answering that question i would say question the w***.

    We must also question a connection between this and the other two killings.

    The shooter walk up the hill or got a ride from an associate, and hide outside until Bob arrived then shoot and rob and drive away with the vehicle to camouflage the incident.
    All he had to do is park the vehicle in the bushes somewhere until the cops find it.

  19. Pleaseeee says:

    BURNER PHONES DON’T HAVE IP ADDRESS. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR BECAUSE YOU MIGHT SLIP UP AND THEY RUN YOUR IP ADDRESS. THE POLICE CAN’T JUST GO AROUND CHECKING PEOPLES IP ADDRESS LIKE THAT. THAT IS AN INVASION OF ONES PRIVACY INCLUDING YOURS JACK***.

      Your ip address becomes public once connected to the web. Burner phones do not have ip addresses but every text and call has to pass through a tower, recorded and rerouted to its receiver…Thats why you still have to throw them away… Even if the phine is off, they can tell if your at home based on how long it stays in one area or if your on the move. Thats all they need…

    Someone or somebody in his family know something happen in his driveway and get away with his ride that is a set up police need to start investigate his close ones so that gunman know what time he be home and no one see any suspicious person around not buying it

    • Blue shoes says:

      Maybe or maybe not. Who knows how these hitmen operate, but they are very effective. So many examples of well executed hits remain unsolved. That is worrying. Nobody here is safe.

  28. Investigate says:

    Check the neighbour. He bound to hear something. With all those shots, bet they were peaking behind their walls too. I believe he has video cameras too. That don’t lie.
