Police confirm Bob Hodge as the victim of Tuesday night’s killing

Earl ‘Bob’ Hodge

Police have confirmed Earl ‘Bob’ Hodge as the victim of last night’s shooting incident in Hannah’s Estate.

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

Police are treating Hodge’s death as a homicide.

“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.

      Not sure why it has to be an island person – we are all island persons. It could have been somebody who came in from south america!

        What about the man who was refused entry and escaped. Sounds like a good candidate unless he likes to surface and deny it was him.

    Cheaper for the US now. Don’t have to spend money to extradite and keep him in prison? The drug and crime invested BVI is surfacing. In the past things were kept quiet but hard times brings the filth to the surface…and another problem removed.

      What in the world are you talking about? I am in St. thomas, and the economic oppression is almost too much to bear. Stop repeating the unfounded boasts of lunatics. If USVI doing so well then why are more than half their businesses closed? Kmart has nothing on the shelves. Take a trip over and see for yourself what is really happening over here from spreading nonsense.

        • Smh says:

          Everybody want the port to open, but when a piece of corona slip in and infest the entire country because of lack of social distancing , we going got to close right back. No money being made , setts COVID cases, and third pillar crumbling.

        • Hmmm says:

          I am currently domiciled in St. thomas and the economy is dead and they have learned to live with the virus. So please stop is absolutely correct in their statement.

          Every day the Governor implements a new strategy that the BVI have been using successfully from the beginning. Maybe you should open. The community spread would most likely affect the least compliant persons in the community and that could be a good thing.

          • Why says:

            Open to let all the elderly and children get infected when their rampant family members come home from the club? USVI just want the waters open to sail over here on day trips. You stop it.

      @SERIOUSLY, TORTOLA IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW. IN MY OPINION, S**T STARTED TO BACK FIRE WHEN THAT BIG SHIPMENT WAS INTERCEPTED. HOPE HE ASK THE UNIVERSE TO HAVE MERCY ON HIM WHEN THE GRIM REAPER CAME FACE TO FACE WITH HIM. THIS WAS NOT A LOCAL HIT, THIS WAS A PROFESSIONAL HIT. YOU ALL BETTER CALL IN THE BRITISH MILITARY BECAUSE THIS IS NOT OVER WITH. THERE IS OTHERS THAT THE HIT SQUAD IS AFTER.

        in the 1980s our Tourism Slogan was: “Yes we are Different”; and we were. Then:
        Our government began to spending millions upon millions yearly promoting BVI Tourism and the idea that the tallest things things in the islands were Palm Trees; then Marias By The Sea went up a few floors and erased the record; then the Cutlass went up a bit higher. Next the buildings in the hills began to go taller and more spread out. What’s next? Will Guns and the Big Busts be the things that Takes us back down?

    In my honest opinion I think Police got something to do with ET and BOB’s murder. These are guys who had runnings with the police and the police didn’t get much out of them. Y’all ever notice that the commissioner isn’t saying much on these murders? The government owe Bob millions. Stay woke BVI. Our police is suppose to protect and serve but we have to watch them as well. Not Good.

    My condolences to the Hodge family, this of course is another murder that will not be solved in the territory, just a lot of “hear-say”. All these murders and almost none have been solved. Tortola judicial system needs to change, to give the families closure. Here’s comes the judge and the jury behind the computers.

    I see people here and elsewhere are dancing around the obvious, and I wonder why.

    Here you have a victim allegedly shot in his home who had a history of alleged illicit drug involvement…a man who the U.S. wanted to have extradited to face charges there, a request he fought and won. He spent some time in the local prison, and now this.

    It’s not hard to speculate what may have occurred here, but I’ll let the authorities do their job and get to the bottom of it.

    At any rate, I will say this, the country I was born and raised in is a country that is quite different to the one I grew up in, and that makes me sad. Such a beautiful place with an apparent underworld.

    I celebrate no ones death as my own is imminent like all humans, and we all have family whom we do not wish ill to come to them.

    Nevertheless, we all have to be very mindful how we roll in this world. There is evil everywhere. Be careful how you play.
