ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Our newsroom can confirm that the body of a male found in the bushes at Rogues Bay on the northern side of Tortola is that of missing person Devern Stanley aka ‘Snoopy’.

The body was found on July 28, 2016 after police reported that residents in the area had smelled a strong stench. This led police to patrol the area and discovered the partially decomposed body of a male in the bushes close to the main road.

It is our newsroom’s understanding that the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) is in communication with the family of the deceased and we will hold other graphic details until the RVIPF’s final investigations are over, granting the family time to mourn this regrettable loss.

The Board of Directors, Management and Staff of Virgin Islands News Online offer our condolences to the family of the late Devern Stanley.

Body found @ Rogues Bay

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- A body, which is yet to be identified, was found on the northern side of Tortola today, July 28, 2016.

Speculation has been rife that the body is that of Devern Stanley aka Snoopy of Free Bottom, who has been reported missing since Saturday June 4, 2016.

Police, however, have steered clear of any such speculation in their press release to the media confirming the discovery of the body.

"Police confirm that a body was discovered by officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force this morning following a Police search in the Rogues Bay area. No identification or details are available at this time," the press release from the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) stated.

It is not yet clear what was the state of the body when it was recovered.

Virgin Islands News Online will bring you more information as it comes in.

    The truth is BVI is no longer the same. I know the youths are following what society and TV teach them. Long are the days where kids were discipline by a community. With so call development comes crime and many other byproducts. It is sad to see blood shed for self justification. Blood shed for greed power wealth and so call respect. The most hurtful thing is the family and friends who are left to moan. This problem is not a Tortola ting it's a BVI thing and what hurts me the most is we blog non sense into the international market and make people confirm their suspicions about some of us. Unless we change our attitude as a people more will always be said than done.

    Wow! Satan is after the young men and women of this territory, especially the young men. The young don't want God and so Satan will gladly steal them away for his Kingdom. Now another family is hurting, in pain. It's time to seek the Lord while he can be found and call upon him while he is near. Watch the friends you keep, don't get caught up in anything illegal and keep your hands clean because these are the end times. My condolences to his family. What I can see is that there a lot of cold blooded killers walking among us but they will be exposed in due time.

        That person who has the dude phone is involved in the crime. They deleting because their is things that is going to bite them in the Razz. Delete all you want because you don't know if he send information to others before he went missing just in case. In due time. See, their is no thing as the perfect crime. He is dead but he is going to get all of you that was involved one by one.
