CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Charleston police believe Robert "Bob" Kenneth Snow made it to Elkview the night they believe he was killed. He was supposed to be at a job meeting in Kanawha City at that time, but he never showed up.
Detectives don't know what happened to Snow since he was last seen on May 23 and since the time he ended up in Elkview, possibly en route to Clendenin, said Charleston Police Sgt. Bobby Eggleton.
Boaters discovered Snow's body May 26 in the Elk River with his hands partially bound with duct tape. His SUV was discovered May 24 behind the Pronto Warehouse off Westmoreland Road.
He was last seen at about 5:30 p.m. at the 7-Eleven on Bigley Avenue, which he oversees as a district manager.
Snow was believed to be on his way to a meeting of 7-Eleven district managers in Kanawha City at 6 p.m. Co-workers called his girlfriend at about 6:10 p.m. when they didn't hear from him.
Detectives, who are investigating Snow's death as a homicide, determined that he was in the Elkview area during that time by tracking his cellphone activity.
"There's a reason Bob Snow went toward the Clendenin area when he was supposed to be going to Kanawha City, and we need to know why," Eggleton said.
Anyone who could shed light on Snow's activities in either Elkview or Clendenin is asked to come forward.
"Was he with someone? Was he speaking with somebody? Did somebody wave him down? Did he stop on the interstate to help somebody?" Eggleton said. "Somebody ran into Bob."
Police have no suspects or clear motives why someone would want to hurt Snow. Detectives have interviewed more than 30 people in their investigation, Eggleton said.
