    He was found deceased according to the Tunnelton Volunteer Fire Department

    Tunnelton Vol. Fire Department

    No details have been released but there's an interesting comment from someone who works in the prosecutor's office on that same thread.

    Police baffled after discovering missing truck driver’s body

    June 10, 2019
    ...

    Hillside Trucking wrote in a Facebook post about Barlow’s disappearance:

    Philip talked to his girlfriend on the phone before leaving for work around 11:30 pm. He was getting his bucket packed and water jug filled. He arrives for work around 12:15 am to 12:45 am every work day. He always liked to be the first truck, so he left early.
    He did not show for work.

    Hillside Trucking also said that “[Barlow’s] pickup was seen on camera footage being followed by a white pickup truck.”

    Barlow’s pickup truck was discovered around 7 a.m. on May 29 on Shower Bath Road. The vehicle was on fire when it was discovered.

    According to local police, “what is known, he was spoken to at 11:30 p.m., his phone was pinged at 12:01 a.m. one-quarter mile from his house, phone pinged again at 12:29 a.m. around the Dollar General Store in Tunnelton never to ping again.”

    The Preston County Sheriff’s Office is now asking the public for surveillance footage from the area to try to determine what happened to Barlow:

    “The Preston County Sheriff’s Office is requesting anyone with security camera footage of a roadway south of Veterans Memorial Highway (WV Rt. 7) and west of River Road (WV Rt. 72) from May 28th and May 29th retain that footage and contact the sheriff’s office; even if you don’t believe the video system captured anything,.”

    I wonder if they ran into him, like a fender bender, to get him to pull over. Then, disappeared him from there. Drugs are a rampant problem in our state. You can’t trust people. Things happen right on the main roads in daylight, and it’s baffling and scary. Idk that is what happened, of course. But, it’s a definite possibility. jmo

    There is not much of anything being released. I'm hoping they are keeping it somewhat quiet so they can find out who did this. There are several names of people in this area being questioned.

    That doesn’t sound good. Unfortunately, it sounds par for the course in our state. Buckie sounds like a good person. Being an older man, I can see him pulling over that late, no problem. My Dad would do the same. We like to never got my Dad to stop picking up hitchhikers until recently. I’m from Wyoming Co, so I understand the meth problem all too well. My sister and I moved away years ago, but still visit my parents. I’m thinking they either tapped Buckie from behind, just enough for him to think it was a regular fender bender, and he pulled over. Whether they overpowered him or pulled a weapon, I don’t know. I hate to think what he probably went through. I’m curious as to what the altercation was about. If he called them out on the drugs, or even whispered to them about police...that’d be enough to bring this on. I’m thinking they must have been selling/manufacturing to cause them to kill him. Of course, this is purely conjecture on my part, as I have no way to know, so all JMO. It’s so hard to get the older generation to understand how dangerous some of the people involved in drugs are. It’s not like it used to be at all, not even when I was growing up. I wish I had some info, but I don’t. I just have lots of experience dealing with the drug manufacturers/dealers. We went through a hellish nightmare for several years just trying to keep my parents safe from junkies that moved close to them. I just get the feeling that Buckie was a good person, and one that would pull over to help someone that late at night, even if they had a flat tire. Years ago, that was 99% of the time perfectly safe. Not anymore. I can’t think of any other scenario than the fender bender. I just hope the person/people responsible get thrown under the prison. Threatening his family is jacked up. How awful to be in fear for their own lives as they grieve for their loved one. All JMO. Prayers for his family and friends.

    Be careful DonnaMae! We don't want you to end up like Buckie. If you want to become a verified insider, please do, otherwise your posts may be removed for containing information that has yet to be reported in mainstream media.

    I wonder why the police wouldn't be interested in the gun the guy wanted you to move?

    Jeezus, that sounds horrible. It sounds like it should be a good case against the killer(s). However, you never know in this state. Dirty LE are everywhere, like roaches. There ARE still great LE, too, so I hope the great ones are on this case. Buckie deserves justice and his family deserves to not live in fear. jmo

    I wasn't knocking law enforcement in our area, I just wish they would bring in other resources and find out who did this. With not much being released, so many people are speculating. I understand why they can't release anything, but it makes it seem like it's going to go unsolved, and I hope that's not the case.

    @DonnaMae We can’t delete posts. Once it’s posted, you have I think an hour to edit it. You can alert a mod to it and request it be removed. At the bottom of each post, there’s a “report” option. You click that and just type whatever you’re requesting. It automatically goes to a Moderator, as soon as they can get to it. It’s there to alert on anyone’s post that you feel is against the WS guidelines, too. Everything we post can’t be based on rumor. We must have a main stream media link to back up what we’re saying. Now, we CAN post theories, but ALWAYS add JMO (just my opinion), IMO (In My Opinion), or MOO (My Opinion Only). It takes a while to get oriented to the site. I just started posting last year, and it’s taken me a while. Hope that helps! And I hope Bucky’s case doesn’t go cold. He deserves way better.

    I'm from a neighboring county and my husband is a trucker so this case really hit home. There hasn't been any updates that I'm aware of.. I keep hoping that we find out who did this and why
