I just got back from the BVI's in early June and had a great time, felt safe the entire time. Spent a few days on Peter Island and then over to Virgin Gorda where we stayed in a villa (Katitche Point) for the first time. Felt very safe in Gorda, Tortola seemed busy and like a mini St. Martin. No real interest to ever stay there. The people of Virgin Gorda were some of the friendliest and proudest people. I know crime can pop up anywhere, even in VG, but I would not be discouraged going there. Scary though how crime is hitting AXA. That is one of my fav hangouts.
