Gets even odder. He obviously was disoriented, but ends up murdered out of town and dumped. Did he get on transportation out of town by himself? Someone lead him away to murder and rob him? Police say he definitely was killed, didn't just die of natural causes. I hope they catch the animal who killed him.
Wow, talk about weird stories and unusual endings!
Delaware police released new video on Friday showing John Wheeler, a former senior official in the administration of President George W. Bush, on the street in downtown Wilmington the day before his body was found in a nearby landfill.
Local police and the FBI are trying to figure out how Wheeler's body got in a dumpster picked up by the trash truck in Newark, Del. as early as 4:20 a.m. on New Year's Eve.
The Delaware Medical Examiner has ruled Wheeler's death a homicide but has not released the cause of death, pending the results of toxicology tests. (more at page)
