John P. Wheeler: Eliminating the red herrings
Examiner ^ | 1-7-2010 | Radell Smith

Pentagon and defense operations must zero in on a problem and bypass the red herrings when seeking solutions; Law enforcement has to do the same thing in a murder investigation like that of John P, Wheeler III. Red herrings in the John Wheeler case include too much of a focus on his alleged erratic behavior and more.

This is a strange one. It is almost as if someone is going out if the way to make it look related to anything but his professional relationships.

It keeps on going back to his house and the neighbor's house. The "smoke bombs", cell phone, boot prints, pried up floor boards, loud TV, etc. Strange indeed.

No one wants a cover up like perhaps Vince Foster’s suspicious high-profile death.

...or the fairy tale told by ALL of why Sandy Berger all of a sudden took a liking to paper in his groin......we never did find out what papers and why

Vince Foster was HOMICIDE victim, beyond reasonable doubt. No need for the qualifier "perhaps" with respect to the Foster cover up, since there is no way the evidence fits the official "suicide" verdict.

As to the Wheeler case, today on another FR thread, a retired Philadelphia detective turned PI states that it might not be a homicide. Could he be running interference - inadvertently - for the killers?

Maybe you or anyone who listens to the interview on Savage could post some salient points? I’d really like to hear what he says but radio reception where I live is very bad.

I read an article today that suggested that he crawled into the dumpster to look for shelter like homeless people do. It also stated ‘he suggested he was mugged’.

Only makes me more suspicious that this is being swept under the rug. The man was obviously attacked as he said he was and I personally do not believe he voluntarily crawled into a dumpster, for crying out loud.

Too many unknowns for the moment. I think everyone is spoiled by the CSI way of solving crimes.

I don’t believe “he crawled into the dumpster to look for shelter” either. It makes no sense at all.

He’s seen on video and by witnesses in Wilmington numerous times on Dec. 29th and 30th. Why would he go 13 miles to Newark just to crawl into a dumpster on Dec. 31st?

There must have been plenty of dumpsters in Wilmington he could have crawled into.

Many Vietnam vets will want this investigated, solved, and the murder(s) sent to prison.

You are exactly right.

Mr. Wheeler graduated from West Point in 1966, serving as a staff officer in Vietnam.
For President Reagan, he created the Vietnam Veterans Leadership Program, linking successful veterans with veterans needing jobs.
He was Chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, which built the Wall.

Thanks for the link.
From the article:

Police have said it is a homicide, so you can definitely throw the suicide option off the table. John P. "Jack" Wheeler was a victim of foul play on 12/30th or early 12/31st.

Given the body was battered during the disposal process, perhaps even a compactor, etc., we can speculate he suffered a bullet wound, was knifed or was administered a mind-altering toxic substance that the ME quickly identified.

The author, Radell Smith, seems on top of the facts but her arguing that red herrings are a distraction is a disservice.

One often does not know what is a red herring until they have constructed a well supported theory. Even then it can be dangerous to ignore anything one knows about a matter. For instance, a single seemingly unrelated document out of 50 banker boxes can be a smoking gun.

As you say...The FACT is that he was robbed....someone might have just knocked him off his feet as they gabbed his suitcase. He had money on him.

Now I hate to admit it...But when someone grabbed my 75 YEAR OLD mom's purse, she went after him...It was an hour before she reported it to the police. (She was lucky).

I think Wheeler was doing the same thing. He didn't want the police because he knew he could find the perp faster...and that LE "stinks" when it comes to robberies like this.

I'll bet he was carrying....

He knows people in these areas...
