  • Details of Disappearance
    Hubbard was reported missing by his family April 16, 2009 and his last known contact with anyone was March 24, 2009. A week later, police discovered Hubbard’s home at 424 Decker Place in Elmira contained evidence of a crime scene. Douglas' van was missing and his dogs were at home alone and not being taken
    care of. This is unusual as the dogs meant a lot to Douglas. Douglas was sick and in need of medication. Van was located later with evidence being located inside it.

    Evidence indicates this case is suspicious.

    Robert J. Storms was indicted in 2012 on charges of second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and first-degree assault in connection with the presumed death of Doug Hubbard. Hubbard’s body has not been found. According to the indictment, Storms allegedly killed Hubbard by striking him in the head with a metal frying pan sometime between March 20, 2009, and April 13, 2009.
