By  | 

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- UPDATE 5/25/19 @ 9:18 p.m.
Seven years after a man's body was found on the Elk River, the case remains unsolved.

Charleston Police say Robert "Bob" Snow went missing on May 23, 2012. He was found three days later by boaters on the water. Police say his hands and feet were bound by duct tape.

No arrests have been made.

In 2017, WSAZ did a follow up investigation and spoke with Snow's family.

Charleston Police say Snow was last seen at the 7-Eleven on Bigley Avenue -- a common stop for Snow because he was a regional manager for 7-Eleven stores in the Kanawha Valley. Surveillance video shows him at the gas station shortly before 5:30 p.m.

There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

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

ORIGINAL STORY 6/29/15
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Two Charleston-area billboards have been installed to try to spark leads in an unsolved slaying of a 7-Eleven district manager with no known enemies.

The billboards feature a smiling photo of Robert Snow, along with the words, "Do You Know Who Murdered Me? REWARD!!"

One is located in downtown Charleston, the other along an interstate exit outside of the city.

Snow was found floating in the Elk River in May 2012, his hands and feet bound with duct tape.

Charleston Police Department Detective Canden Sharp says Snow seemed to be very well-liked and multiple possible suspects have been cleared.

Sharp says he requested that the billboards be put up because he does not want the cold case to fade away from public consciousness.
