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 wonder if he ever found his car, and if he did, was he is any condition to drive it. I'm thinking, if his eyes were so bloodshot or if he had some head trauma, maybe he couldn't focus enough to drive, at night.
I know when I have a headache, the last thing I want to do is drive. Once I was a passenger at night and the oncoming headlights hurt my eyes so much, I had to close my eyes.
