Robinson specialized in the tech aspect of hunting, utilizing different tools to help find individuals evading the law. His death was confirmed by ex-wife Rainy Robinson via Instagram where she posted an image of David alongside the caption, “11/2/72 – 11/30/22.” She also included the hashtag, “#Fast156,” likely in reference to his Twitter profile with the handle, @Fast156, where David hadn’t posted anything since 2019.

Of David’s loss, Dog told TMZ, “I’m shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of David Robinson, my right-hand man of many years. Until we meet again, brother.”

According to Rainy, David suffered from a medical emergency while on a Zoom call, and while first responders were called and the proper life-saving measures were taken, resuscitation was unsuccessful.

In an update from TMZ, David’s wife Brooke told the outlet, “David was very healthy and was on a work call in our dining room at home when he collapsed. Life-saving maneuvers were attempted and paramedics were called. David died in my arms.”

“We ask again for time and space to grieve for the husband, father, brother and friend that was lost.”
