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

Posted on 01/07/2011 10:43:01 AM PST by smoothsailing

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.

"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."

Does he have any connection, business in Newark?

I don't think he climbed into the dumpster, but, we must consider that he was a military man. Although he was no spring chicken, I'm sure that his basic training could have kicked in, adrenal and all, if it was the only place to hide. I think that he could have climbed in, but don't think he did.

Thanks for the pings to this thread.

It is obvious there already is misdirection—purposeful misdirection—on this case already.

I’m glad the author is stating that the red herrings exist and have to be discounted.

And someday, the truth about Vince Foster’s MURDER, not SUICIDE, will come out, and there are a lot of people now in DC who will be behind bars.

The DC establishment is one huge criminal enterprise and it is time to flush the corruption.

The names on the Wall that Mr. Wheeler fought to memorialize deserve nothing less than that we clean house once and for all.

"I'll bet he was carrying...."

The Lt Gen was asked this.

It's also interesting who he thinks is responsible.

Would you consider running a ping list for the John Wheeler murder? I’m trying to follow what gets posted on FR, but I’m sure to be missing some threads. This is a very bizarre case, and nothing I’ve seen theorized makes all that much sense, so far. Anyway, if you would run a ping list, I’d sure like to be on it. If you’d rather not, no worries.

This scenario reminds me of one that occurred (IIRC) a while after 9-11. It was a bio weapons specialist. Had a big meeting and left. They found his car near a bridge. I believe their conclusion was that he slipped and fell into the river.

Anyone else remember this one??

Who's LtGen??

Here are all the threads that have the word, WHEELER, in the title:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/search?m=all;o=time;q=quick;s=wheeler

Many of them would also be found under KEYWORD search for 'wheeler.'

His car was found on a bridge in Tennessee where he was visiting his father. His first name was Don, I don’t think his name was Don WILEY, but it’s something very close to that. He was a microbiologist from Harvard. His body was retrieved from the Mississippi River many months later, and the authorities claimed that the wind had blown him off the bridge.

Lt Gen McInerney

Weird because I was thinking about the missing overcoat and ripped shoe. Maybe he fell and got stuck in some very tight area. That might explain the dirty clothes. The shoe might have gotten ripped when he tried to pull it out of the tight spot. A mugger may have his overcoat. I somehow do not see him removing his shoe to beat a mugger. Too much time wasted in disrobing.

"Ripped Shoe" is really an assumption. Something happened to make him carry the one shoe...But why and for how long, we simply don't know. Maybe he got a nail in it. I've had that happen...and more than once.

A missing overcoat is also an assumption. Maybe he left it on the amtrack or maybe he took a cab and left it in the cab. Some people just go from door to door...and an overcoat is too much.

Thanks! I think some might have initially gotten posted without keywords. I’m on FR frequently during most days, do pings work real well for me. I’ve always enjoyed ping lists bringing together groups of individuals interested in the same topic, and this sure is a fascinating one.

Yep!

THE CABBIE:

Authorities have also taken Athel Scott, a cab driver, in for questioning after finding his phone number on Wheeler’s cell phone.

Scott says he doesn’t know how his number got on Wheeler’s phone, but he says he does remember seeing him.

“I seen him one day by the Hotel du Pont and one day I seen him at the train station going inside that little store, that’s all I know,” Scott said.

Police are still trying to find out how Wheeler got around after returning to Wilmington on December 28th from Washington, D.C.

He somehow made it to New Castle and back again to Wilmington, while his car sat parked in the garage across the street from the train station.

I appreciate your asking. I wouldn't mind but my login time on FR is unpredictable, so I probably couldn't do a ping list justice.

Hennie Pennie's advice about the Wheeler keyword search is the best bet for all of us for now.

LtGen McInerney? I watched him yesterday when he told Megyn Kelley that he thought it was a professional hit. Did he go any further than that with Savage?

We have to go back....

I read that he did attend a meeting for Mitre (??) on the 28th. I can't imagine him leaving without talking personally to the bunch. I can also hear..."Where are you heading John?...I'm staying at the DuPont......etc etc

Need to know more about the 28th and what his plans WERE...This guy was not a fly by nighter. Someone was expecting him at particular times.

(Why do I say that...because he called 2 people and said he was stuck in NY.

Need to know why he didn't call his wife if he was hurt.

What shoes was he wearing with the sweatshirt?

This LE dept might top Moose....

Thank you.

If I have time I”ll listen. I hope someone will post salient points though. For some reason lately I’m insanely busy (and as usual, insanely disorganized...)

Haven't heard one word about WHY he was going to Wilmington in the first place and who he was going to meet. His meet at Mitre was on the 28th in McClean as far as I can surmise.

Very strange....
