Murder Victim Killed While Servicing ATM Near Airport, Police Say

July 20, 2007 — Police have released a few more details on the death of 60-year-old Trevor Joseph, who was killed early Friday morning during an attempted robbery on St. Thomas.
Joseph was servicing an automated teller machine at the Best Western Emerald Beach Hotel near the Cyril E. King Airport when he was shot and killed, according to a V.I. Police Department news release sent out Friday evening.
"Investigators say an undisclosed amount of money is missing," the release said.
An investigation into the homicide is ongoing, with both local and federal agencies assisting in the efforts. In addition to working with officers from the Department of Planning and Natural Resources, the V.I. Port Authority and V.I. Superior Court marshals, police said Immigration and Customs Enforcement teams responded from Puerto Rico, providing helicopter support to search the surrounding areas.
When contacted early Friday morning, Police Commissioner James H. McCall said investigators are searching for the perpetrators. The case has been turned over to the VIPD's Major Crimes Unit, the release said.
Anyone with information related to this or any other crime is urged to contact the confidential police hotline at 715-5534 or emergency 911.
