Default Homicide at Big Game Club

Title of Thread is Wrong. Location was at Big Game Club.

Reports are that on Friday 14th March 2014 shortly before 7:00am, Police received information that a male was found lying on the grounds of a Hotel in Bimini who appeared to be lifeless.

Officers responded and upon arrival met a Caucasian male on the grounds at a Hotel in Bimini with an apparent stab wounds to the body. He was pronounced dead by Doctor from the Bimini Clinic.

Officers from the Central Detective Unit in Grand Bahama and Bimini are leading the investigation into this matter. At the moment police have in their custody four male Caucasians who are assisting them in their investigation.

"four males in custody who are assisting'"?


Guess they use waterboarding as one of their watersport activities.

Actually looks like it was Big Game Club. Mods you can change the title of my thread. Originally someone on twitter has said Resorts World. I dont have an agenda.

Someone contact Mike Weber at BBGC. We were just there, Sun-Tues, lots of boats and spring breakers. The bull sharks are thick in the marina and cleaning tables. If the body had gotten in the water it would have been gone in minutes.

"I don't have an agenda." Ha! That comment is just Bull Sugar as everyone on here knows that you revel in posting anything outlandish or bizarre you can dig up about Bimini.

Its actually very tragic whats happening in Bimini. I've been visiting for 35 years, you think I want to see my second home become a cess pool of murders, rapists and drug addicts? I've warned people for years that Bimini will be an unsafe place with all the development and people that will flock to the island.

Its inevitable. Anywhere you put up Casino's and big hotels you'll have drug, murders and rapes. The problem is, is Bimini hasn't seen a murder or a rape in 20 years. Yet two of them happened within months of each other.

This incident happened over Drugs. Son was pissed that he didnt get any of the coke dad bought on the island.

There is no Agenda, more like a "I told you so". Its only going to get worse and worse this year.

"we know he will get the Barefoot Bandit treatment as jail is only for the over-the-hill-crew!"

What does this statement mean? What is the Barefoot Bandit treatment?

Just unthinkable how a son could kill his father.

You don't have an agenda? What's your source on this post?

You continually froth at the mouth and run up any piece of bad news about Bimini you can dig up without checking your facts and assessing the impact you have on the islands with your drivel. You base your serial bad news headlines about Bimini on errant speculation, unsourced misinformation and in the process trash anyone who calls you out on your BS. Your conduct is disgraceful and your credibility is zero. It is truly shameful that THT ever let you back on here.

You don't have an agenda? Yea sure.

My dog breaks wind and you blame Resorts World.

I'm not a fan of RW but seriously, what did they do to you?

Seriously? Bimini is your second home but you don't know that Ossie Brown was murdered there (1995 I believe), an Austrian couple were raped and murdered in 2005, there was a murder in Bailey Town in 2010 for which three Americans were arrested. All within the last 20 years. I also recall a stabbing in High Rollers and a shooting by a policeman (who was charged with manslaughter) in Bimini Breeze. The police shooting resulted in a riot which burned the police barracks and police boat.

I am no fan of Bimini Bay but the misinformation that you put out is ridiculous.

He was not killed by his son. He had a 7 and 10 year old at home in Pennsylvania. His wife said he was on a business trip???

A Pennsylvania father and husband was murdered during a business trip to The Bahamas.

Carl Yerger, of Fleetwood, Pa., was stabbed multiple times near a resort in Bimini, a set of islands on the western edge of the archipelago, an officer with the Royal Bahamas Police Force confirmed to NBC10.com.

The 45-year-old’s body was found at 7 a.m. Friday morning and had multiple stab wounds, officials said. An official cause of death is pending an autopsy.

Co-owner of Custom Milling & Consulting in Fleetwood, Pa., Yeager was conducting business on the island when he was killed, his wife Rebecca Yerger told NBC10.com. The couple have two sons – Tate, 7, and 10-year-old Ty.

He also was the president of the Oley Valley Youth Sports League.

“He was unique, caring, ambitious, detailed, organized, courageous, a problem solver, and mediator,” the league’s board of directors wrote in a statement. “His efforts earned him the support and loyalty of both new and long-time volunteers and coaches.”

Investigators say they have taken four men into custody in relation to the crime, but no one has been charged.

Police also have not released an official motive, but believe it may have been a random act.

The death investigation is ongoing.

Yes, the reported information is conflicting. It would be nice to read an accurate article and provide specifics on the suspects.

Are they trying to report that it was a family member out of concern for the tourism industry? If the article reported in PA is accurate his sons are 7 and 10 respectively. I have a hard time believing one of them killed their dad for drugs.

I wonder what business he had on the island. Was he a boater?

AND, Frederick Francis, who murdered the Austrians, was awaiting trial on a rape he committed a few years prior.
