Did you not know he worked in DOD? According to Lt. Co. McInnery, who appears on FOX said from the get go that this should have been immediately assigned to the FBI because of his work and security clearance. He was an expert in Bio/Chemical/Cyber Warfare. I did not until a few hours ago. This is HUGE.

The brief case was stolen according to the first witness.

I don’t find it odd that he didn’t talk to his wife. They had 3 residences, he lived in DC, she in NYC and they shared the DE house. Being older and involved in high demand careers, I wouldn’t be shocked if they didn’t talk every day.

BTW, since Sacajaweau took #5, I’ll take #3. The neigbor was mobbed up and got tired of Wheeler and the property/construction court fight. :o)

Yep, has all the sceneruios of a Fredrick Forsyth novel.
They are searching for an easy explanation and there is none. failure to recognize all the signs of foul play.

I know, it is right out of a Tom Clancy novel! He worked under Reagan, and both Bush’s, the SEC and the AF, now a DOD contractor.

I am no pharmacist, but I would imagine there are drugs which could cause almost anything. Because of where he was found, I do not think his death was from natural causes.They don’t give us any idea any recognizable cause of death so far, so anything is pure speculation. However, with all the mystery deaths in the scientific field. it does tend to suspect an anti-American to me.

Remember, LE always holds back some information...LE also issued a statement on behalf of the family. No family member wanted to step up??

Why didn't he call his wife if he was in trouble??? Because he had a hunch??

100 people must have seen this guy in those couple days and I don't think he's a stranger to the areas.

Nope it was a hit...the wife...Bet she's got a boyfriend....

Rodent bombs...some reporters are just idiots...

***he was wandering aroung in Wilmington, 10+ miles away***.

Addendum:

a) mugged, pulled into a vehicle and removed to the dumpster.
b) got a ride with someone and in his confused state, demanded to be let out of the vehicle in Newark (becoming further disoriented).

(I sense that; (even in a vulnerable condition) this man was unused to asking for help and persisted in the belief he could handle any crisis).

Yeah but she has nothing to gain, no kids are involved, she is the head of an international textile firm, they’ve only been married 3 yrs. so why would she not just leave him? It is 2nd marriages for both.

But if he was in trouble, he wouldn't try to call his wife?? or his attorney who he had just talked to?? Of course he would....unless

LE is giving us street witness stuff....and most of it means very little...in fact...it shows what crappy observers we are...

Why did only ONE person report the big red eyes??

He said his briefcase was stolen...Was he trying to get back to the scene of the crime to recover it??

Was he seen with one shoe in his hand by anyone or just in the video??

We need a friggin' blackboard and the TRUTH from the FBI....It's not going to happen...

From Philly.com....

On Christmas eve, a friend drove John to a train station. John was going to New York with his wife's Christmas present. So John was with his wife before he left for his business meeting??

This is the first article where wifie gets mentioned as seeing him RECENTLY....Everywhere else, it implies that she's been away...

I just read where he phoned from his wife’s NYC apartment telling a friend he was stuck because of the snow storm on the 26th. He phoned his lawyer on the 27th, still out of town. Friends said he was a rabid e-mailer and they were surprised when nobody heard from him after Army won their Bowl game cause he was a huge Cadet football fan.

Maybe he got cold and crawled into a dumpster to get warm and died in there.

The dumpster was 10+ miles from where he had been seen and his car was still in the parking lot.

Sounds like that's what is being held back...his correspondence and the caliber of the bullet (;-).

I tell you....WIFE hired a hitman...(Make it look like a mugging)

Noticed a picture of him where his tie was undone but hanging around his neck...and we're creatures of habit...

Did he have a tie on originally?? Did they strangle him originally...with his own tie...and leave him for dead....Strangulation can cause those red eyes.....

He was gonna find the little bas***** himself but when he did....they just plain shot him...So did anyone hear it?? Not if fireworks were going off......and birds were dropping from the sky...

"Strangulation can cause those red eyes....."

If one survives a strangulation?

Wouldn't there have been red strangulation marks on his neck that witnesses could have seen?

"He was gonna find the little bas***** himself but when he did....they just plain shot him..."

Why would he look for his attackers if they were lowly thugs? Wouldn't he go to the police for that?
I would think if it wasn't a regular mugging, he'd try to get to safety ASAP and work from there.

Mace or some other tear gas agent.

Mugging perhaps.

"Police say they believe that Wheeler’s body was collected at the beginning of the route based on its location in the garbage truck."

Or it was in the truck before the route began???

Speculation my dear Watson...If they KNOW it’s a homicide....either his skull is cracked open or he’s got a bullet hole. Since they haven’t leaked the word “trauma”...I say bullet....

Ok , yes you are right. Like I said there is to much missing info. I don’t think the investigators expect this to get much publicity. Thought no one would care about some Repub with cyber Security clearances.

I'm just speculating but there's some type of overt damage to the body not caused by dumpster dumping...

His skull could get cracked from the dumpster functions...but dumpsters don't shoot bullets....

I'd say we're not getting info because they're tracking "something" or "someone"....

Looks like we lost a True Patriot!!

They showed the dumpsters on the news yesterday...they are WAY to tall to crawl into...the reporters were speculating that it would take two men to lift him up that high.

And the shoe...I think his foot was injured and hurting too much to wear, so he carried it.

He could have been attacked and drugged..left for dead, or got away somehow, and they eventually found him again and finished him off.

My theory FWIW: He was tied to a chair at his house, drugged, tortured and interrogated (thus the loud music to cover voices). He escaped but was still drugged and disoriented. When his captors discovered him gone, they tracked him down and finished him off. :o)

Yup. This is important.

And, so, everything we will be hearing is more likely than not a cover story.

"What would cause eyes to be blood shot?"
Mace or some other tear gas agent.

That's what I was thinking. Reminds me of the Tom Clancy novel where the computer expert from the Army is abducted out of a parking lot. His attackers pull up to the guy as if to ask directions, nail him in the face with pepperspray and then pull him into the back seat.

One thing that interests me is that a report mentioned the police took an interest in two chairs in the guy's home beneath which a hole was torn in the floorboards. Was someone looking for something they somehow knew was hidden below or was someone trying to break out of the basement or did he just have some rotten flooboards in one of replacement or.....?

Nevemind, that new report a few posts up says investigators removed the floorboards and instead of being under a pair of chairs this new report says the floorboards were in front of the sink.

Looks like the investigators are looking at a possible stain on the floorboards like body fluid or chemicals... some kind of spillage, perhaps from mixing something over the sink.

I've heard from somewhere that people who have survived near death from strangulation will have really blood shot eyes.

“I haven’t heard anything about his cell phone.”

IIRC his cell phone was found at the home of the neighbor he was fighting with. There was also some suspicioun that he had set off a number of bug bombs in the house. That might also explain the bloodshot eyes, depending upon how much of the bug stuff he was exposed to.

I’m coming late to this party so forgive me if this is now old news.
