Memorial Day weekend marks 7-year anniversary of Charleston murder

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Police in the Capital City are using the Memorial Day holiday weekend to remind residents of an ongoing murder investigation.

Bob Snow

It was seven years ago that Robert “Bob” Kenneth Snow went missing while traveling between 7-Eleven stores in Charleston where he, as a manager, was scheduled to conduct interviews.

Snow went missing on May 23, 2012, his body was spotted three days later by Memorial Day weekend boaters in the Elk River, May 26, 2012. He had been bound by duct tape around his hands and feet.

Snow was well-liked, well-known and respected in the Charleston community. His car was found in a parking lot near the Westmoreland Exit of I-77 in Charleston. His body was found in the river not far away. Surveillance video showed him in the car in that neighborhood where he had paid a visit to one of the convenience stores he was responsible for. He’d left that store to go interview a person for a job at another store, but never made it to the interview.

Charleston police sent out a reminder this weekend about Snow’s murder and the ongoing investigation. A $10,000 reward is being offerred for information leading to an arrest in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Charleston Police Department Sgt. Canden Sharp at 304-348-8111.
