Officer describes finding Dillon Brown’s body in the trunk of Brown’s car
RCMP Cpl. Evan Hobbs knew something was off when he spotted a grey Honda parked on the road to Sayward the evening of March 12, 2016.
“The vehicle was parked just before the bridge, which was a little odd. The time of night was odd. It’s March, it’s dark, it’s wet and it’s cold, with rain and snow. It caught my attention because it shouldn’t have been there,” Hobbs testified at Richard Alexander’s trial for the first-degree murder of Dillon Brown.
The Crown has alleged that Alexander, former president of the Devil’s Army motorcycle club, shot Brown, a 30-year-old mixed martial arts fighter, in the head in the basement of the Devil’s Army clubhouse in Campbell River on March 11, 2016.
Alexander denies killing Brown but has admitted that he drove Brown’s car with Brown’s body in the trunk to Sayward and abandoned the car by the side of the road.
Hobbs, then a general duty officer with Sayward RCMP, recalled that the Honda’s passenger-side window was all the way down. The driver-side window was partially down.
