Body Recovered Likely That Of Clinton Hodge


Tuesday, August 16 – The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force Major Crime Team today issued a statement confirming that based on DNA retrieve from the closest surviving family member, the skeletal remains found behind an Upper Main Street establishment in February of this year are likely that of Clinton Hodge.
The remains of a male were uncovered on February 10 of this year; two days after a skull were discovered by a workman behind the establishment. RVIPF arranged for members of the Territory Search and Rescue Team (TSART) to cover a wide circumference of the area. Clothing and other items were also recovered from the site.
The Coroner’s Office enlisted the help of a forensic anthropologist overseas to carry out the necessary examination. This examination, however, could not determine the cause of death.
Clinton Hodge went missing on or around 26 September 2011. An investigation into his disappearance was carried out by the Major Crime Team. While he had a United States passport, Police inquiries showed that he did not legally enter the U.S. or fly out with any airline in the Caribbean region.
Clinton whereabouts had remained unknown until this recent discovery.
