VIPD: Ohio’s Randy Stickle Shot Multiple Times Until Dead In Golden Rock

CHRISTIANSTED — Gunshots rang out just before midnight in Golden Rock on Saturday, leaving an unidentified man dead, authorities said.

The 911 Emergency Call Center received reports of a “discharging of shots in the Golden Rock area” of St. Croix about 11:40 p.m. on Saturday, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

“Upon officer’s arrival they discovered an unresponsive Caucasian male on the sidewalk,” VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said this evening. “The male was shot multiple times about the body and succumbed to his injuries.”

The dead man’s name is being withheld pending notification of a next of kin, according to Dratte.

The VIPD alerted the Virgin Islands Free Press to the homicide at 6:04 p.m. today.

At 2:04 p.m. on September 3, the VIPD said that the dead man was Randy Stickle, 46, of Ohio.

The Criminal Investigation Bureau is asking the community for their assistance with any information regarding this incident.  

The VIPD issued a press release on Stickle on October 27, 2009 saying that he was a “burglar caught in the act.”

    THEN…what happens… the VIPD sit their a$$e$ down and do $hit!!!!
    But ask for the community to help them out so they can go and RAT out the man that give the info to them.
    If Mr. Stickle had a licensed conceal carry firearm THEN… the VIPD will arrest him for use of deadly force with a firearm, and THEN help the criminal to the Hospital for care to let him go free. AND… THEN… Mr. Stickle will have to fight and prove the legal system that it was all for self defense, so he can save himself from going jail.
    Moral of the story is… NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO IN THE U.S VIRGIN ISLAND ONCE YOU ARE THE LAW ABIDING CITIZEN… YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HOLDING THE SHITTY END OF THE STICK. (DAM IF YOU DO DAM IF YOU DON’T) R.I.P Mr. Stickle….
