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., Yerger 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.
