John Wheeler Surveillance Video Surfaces in Murder Mystery

submit to reddit

A prominent national defense expert appeared confused and disoriented as he wandered inside a downtown Wilmington office building less than 14 hours before his body was dumped with a load of trash at a nearby landfill, police said Wednesday.

John P. Wheeler III refused help from several people who approached him inside the Nemours Building as late as 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Newark Police Lt. Mark A. Farrall said.

Wheeler’s body was found Friday morning at the Cherry Island Landfill in Wilmington. Police believe he was killed, but they haven’t said how or why.

Wheeler, 66, was an Army officer at the Pentagon during the Vietnam War. He served in the administrations of three Republican presidents and helped get the Vietnam War Memorial built.

Wheeler was seen in a similarly disoriented condition in downtown Wilmington Dec. 29, two nights before his body was found. He approached parking garage attendant Iman Goldsborough at the New Castle County courthouse around 6:40 p.m., wearing a black suit with no tie and only one shoe, Goldsborough said. He carried his damaged right shoe, a tasseled burgundy loafer, and had no overcoat even though there was snow on the ground, she said.

    I don’t see confused and disoriented. I see him walking around like he needs help. The people that say they asked him if he needed help thought he was HOMELESS, and they were trying to offer him money. This is why he refused them. He needed the police and no one helped him.

  • Please come forward with information – especially to citizens and people who are not members of the mainstream press – with anything that will shed light on this urgent situation. We all know this is serious. Have courage. Unite in this adversity. Be smart. Be strong. Talk to each other. Not necessarily online ;)

  • Left a comment and won’t show. Any ideas? Just testing with this second message.

    There is nothing homeless looking about this man. He is wearing expensive clothes, expensive shoes (tassled loafer), and look at his neat, well kept hair cut. They thought he was homeless???? NO WAY!!!!

    I agree that he does not look homeless. He does, however, appear to be somewhat disoriented and very confused.

    Why is it mainstream media is mostly silent on this story?

    He worked for Mitre who was connected to Ptech who is connected to Muslim extremists who are supported by Iran.

    Alex wow you amaze me this happens so often totally backwards facts; IRAN??? lol

    Michael S. Goff, Ptech’s Jewish marketing manager, also worked for Israeli database company Guardium (whose director is Israeli Jew Amit Yoran). Guardium has all the characteristics of a Mossad front company.

    I don’t think he looks all that confused, he looks more frightened and paranoid, as if he was checking around him to see if anyone was following him. I am curious as to what he was saying to the person at the hallway window.
    it’s obvious that his right foot was hurt and his tattered shoe in hand leaves me to wonder what happened to this man prior to this video.

  • Why are the “surveillance videos” moving and following his movements? Do they really have a full-time security person there with non-static positionable cameras? That seems a bit odd.

    Re camera movements/ image tracking .. it is possible that a high end CCTV system can auto track moving objects and pan zoom tilt automatically see the link.

    However the movements of the camera seem to indicate that the camera is being held by a cameraman. The movements seem too random for digital servo motor control.
