6 Years Later, No Answers On Dover Man's Homicide

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. – More than six years later, the murder of a 23-year-old Dover man is still a mystery.

On August 18th, 2007, Jerome Hill was with a 24-year-old friend on Carpenter Street in Dover Air Park Mobile Home, when around 2:15 AM, three to four suspects entered the home. Police say the suspects hit the 24-year-old male in the face with what appeared to be a revolver, then shot him in the right thigh. Hill was reportedly shot multiple times in the head and was later pronounced dead at the scene.

After the incident, the 24-year-old reportedly gave little help to police. He allegedly could not say where the suspects fled, or whether any property was taken after the invasion either.

"He wasn't able to give us a clothing description, an age or anything of that nature, but we are tending to believe that they were male suspects," says Corporal Gary Fournier with the Delaware State Police.

Since the incident, the mobile home was reportedly placed with a new home that is vacant and up for sale. Current neighbors say they are not familiar with the incident.

"A lot of people will travel through that development and people come and go on a daily basis," says Corporal Fournier. "There was no indication that this residence stood out among any others."

Police say they still have not ruled out drugs as a factor in the incident, and believe the home may have been targeted, despite what they heard from the 24-year-old victim.

"He didn't give any indication as to a motive that would cause the suspects to break into the house looking for their valuables."

However, police still are not giving up in finding an answer.

"At this time we don't have any descriptors on the suspects but we are looking for anything or any witnesses that were in that area at the time," says Corporal Fournier.

Delaware State Police are asking anyone with information to call 1-800-TIP-3333, and through this line, all callers will be able to give tips anonymously.
