This sucks. I lived on Utila for 6 months back in 91. I hate to see this kind of crap in the bay islands. RIP Captain Vern.

Terrible news. I heard about it from one of the dive instructors on Utila soon after it happened.

Also, here is a LINK to a video of the situation, taken immediately after the incident.

I was there last year on Utila and Roatan and on Roatan twice this year. Vern will be missed by his friends.

Good to know that they caught the low life scumbags that took a great mans life, Vern was someone that I have always admired and looked up to, the guy was amazing, he did whatever he wanted in life and was good at whatever that was.

He did what he loved, and loved what he did..............and he will be missed by many

I have a couple of pics that Vern had sent to me of the bikes that he bought after my visit, I just have to figure out how put them in my photobucket so I can post them.

A WR450 and we both had proper bikes to ride for my next visit
