The vehicle, a white Hyundai SUV with license plate RT 4593, was found a short distance from Daly’s body, with the engine still running and the driver's side door open.

Many on social media have expressed shock at the Territory’s recent homicide, the second for the year.

The first homicide occurred on Thursday September 3, 2020, when Mr George Burrows was shot in the head while in the bedroom of his Purcell Estate home.

Mr Daly was reportedly a father of 6.

He ran a food vending place close to a famous sports bar and nightclub in Free Bottom, was a former employee of Digicel and also worked as Marketing Director of G. Organic Herbal Center BVI Limited based in Free Bottom.

Police said persons with any information related to this incident are asked to contact Detective Inspector Vernon Larocque; directly on 368-9809 or via the Major Crime Investigation Team on 368-5682.

      This is much bigger than a c**k thing. No one is going to shoot someone in the head that many times over someone screwing their woman or we would have plenty of dead men turning up everyday dead on the Island. He got GREEN LIGHT AND MURKED OVER SOMETHING BIGGER.

      I agree, this is not about messing with no woman. I will also agree if that was the case, every day they will be picking up dead men around the Island.

    May God comfort the souls of their beloved families.
    I really hope the police force find the perpetrators of these two awful crimes.
    Tortola was going so perfect this year without any tragic murders until now.

    Straight up mob style hit. Dude know who the killer is, was lured to area. If the police recover his cell, that will lead to the killer. The man that was killed in his bed, that was a in house personal thing. I feel sorry for his family and they have my condolences. However, you have to see it for what it is, he simply got caught up and he was in to deep. To many people is loosing their lives over the glitz and glam.

      Rented car a few feet from where he was killed with engine running. Someone that he knew called him to the spot and ambush him when he got out of the rental. Never agree to see anyone IN A DESOLATE AREA, YOU WILL BE WALKING INTO A TRAP. Insist on meeting in a public area. Sorry but dude was into something deep and he paid the price for what he was into.

    Nobody deserves to die out on the street like that as if they didn’t come from a mother. It seems man created man that some feel they can take a life. Our Creator has exclusive rights to that. I can’t speak to how he was with anybody else, but he was kind to me. I am sorry to know he went out like that. We don’t know when it’s time for us to go. So I hope we can all make ourselves right with our Creator before that time comes. R.I.P. David and my condolences to the family.

    Revelation 9

    You think taking a life is any match for the torment of Judgment

    1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

    2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

    3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

    4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

    5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

    6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

      It is not that people don’t want to say anything. People just don’t want their names dropping all over the Island when they report something to the police. Nobody don’t want no gun man rolling up on them when they leave the station or gun man coming up in your house blowing you away.

    To the Killer

    Genesis 4;10-12

    10“What have you done?” replied the LORD. “The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. 11Now you are cursed and banished from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.12When you till the ground, it will no longer yield its produce to you. You will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.”…

    He got into something real big. At least he was smart to have proof as to what he was into and who he was doing it with. He is going to get his revenge from the grave. The evidence ie... taped conversations, audio, dates, times and pictures is going to surface once they are found. I agree, seek and yea shall find.

    Is it only me who thought about these murders being related. They both were shot in their heads that is personal. This person is heartless and can you believe walking amoung us? It is truly frightening to think this as our borders are closed and being securely monitored. To be shot in head is a serious passionate manner both were shot in their heads. RIP to both men
