The Suspicious Death of John Wheeler III

It's very true that we're nothing if not skeptics over here on FugginSuggin.com.  We refuse to take statements as fact without convincing evidence of truth, and even then we remain open to conflicting evidence or information (as reasonable people should be!!).  We question purported facts whenever it appears as though their authority failed to perform the necessary research or investigation.  Being skeptical, whenever a seemingly newsworthy event takes place and does not receive the coverage it should from mainstream media, we question why such an event or issue has not received the attention it warrants.  This year, such an event took place in the death of John P. Wheeler III (in addition to other events, including the previously discussed assassination of Judge John Roll).

After being seen by several witnesses in a disoriented state in the days prior, John "Jack" Parsons Wheeler III was found dead in Cherry Island Landfill in Wilmington, Delaware on December 31, 2010.  The police ruled the death a homicide and the investigation remains unsolved.

According to Wikipedia and a short 2009 biography, Wheeler was a chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, senior planner for Amtrak (1971–1972), held various positions at the Securities and Exchange Commission (1978–1986), was chief executive and CEO of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, a consultant to the Mitre Corporation (2009–death), a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a presidential aide to the Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush administrations, and also held numerous other positions in the U.S. military, the U.S. government, and with U.S. corporations.  At 66 years old, John Wheeler ended his career as a military consultant to the Mitre corporation, "a not-for-profit organization chartered to work in the public interest" (with an annual revenue of approximately $1.3 billion in 2010).

Following his death, Wheeler's widow, Katherine Klyce, has been outspoken regarding her discontent with the investigation and her belief that her late husband's death was a targeted operation.  In a very recent interview with USA Today, Ms. Klyce, along with Wheeler's adult son, John Wheeler IV, talked about the mysterious circumstances and unsolved question behind the death of John Wheeler III.

Since press released information on Wheeler's baffling death, a slew of "conspiracy theories" have surfaced (even by Chinese news media), and rightfully so.  Skeptics (or truthers) have been fueled by puzzling and disconnected clues, as well as snippets of video from random surveillance cameras that put Wheeler at a series of inexplicable locations in his last 48 hours. Nobody seems to have any idea of what he was doing or who may have been with him. Then, he merely fell out of contact, and turned up dead, the victim of blunt-force trauma to his head.

When asked about the conspiracy theories by USA Today, Klyce says, "I would discount most of those," though she has entertained the possibility that he was killed by a professional.  Such a view is shared by others, including retired Lt. General Tom McInerney who told FoxNews in early January, "This has to have been a professional hit job. . . . He had some of the highest security clearance this nation has, and it needs to be looked at by the FBI.  Klyce has expressed frustration that authorities have yet to find the killer, despite the family's offer of a $25,000 reward.
