A report obtained exclusively by FOX 5 revealed new details about the murder scene and the victims in a brutal murder and assault on a Loudoun County couple.
Some of the details in the computer-assisted dispatch, or CAD, as it is commonly called, are highly sensitive. It includes more information about the suspects, a mysterious white van that was seen in the area, and about how far reaching the investigation has become.
According to the 15-page CAD from EMS responders, on the morning of March 2, a resident first noticed something out of the ordinary shortly after 5 a.m. The report says a white van was seen, and three men were heard speaking loudly on Rocky Creek Road. About 15 minutes later, there was more commotion, and the same van was seen. This time, two males— one in a dark sweatshirt and the other in a light, hooded sweatshirt—crossed Riverside Parkway several times…
Retired Green Beret William Bennett, 57, was found dead when EMS crews arrived. According to the report, he died of blunt force trauma to the face and head…
Cynthia Bennett remains in critical condition at an undisclosed area hospital under tight security. Investigators are offering a reward of more than $20,000 for information in the case.
Neighbor Tammy Goddard never saw William Bennett go outside during daylight hours except to run to the mailbox in his shorts to pick up his mail, she said. The Bennetts had their groceries delivered once a week and their laundry picked up and delivered daily, Goddard said. He only went out at night.
"I just thought he liked to keep to himself," Goddard said. "He was very reclusive. We had difficulty getting him to say hello."
What they do know is that William Bennett was a CIA contractor until 2000. He was involved in a mistaken bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade in May 1999 during the conflict with Kosovo, according to intelligence sources. Three people were killed and 20 injured in that bombing. The CIA later took responsibility. Bennett was one of the officials who helped identify targets in Belgrade, according to a retired senior intelligence officer.
The Director of Central Intelligence disclosed today that the agency had selected just one target in the 11-week air war over Yugoslavia, and its decision led to the accidental bombing of the Chinese Embassy in May.
''This episode is unusual because the C.I.A. does not normally assemble, on its own, target nomination packages containing the coordinates of specific installations or buildings,'' Mr. Tenet said.
WMR also learned from a source familiar with the attack on the Bennetts that they were found by police with either hoods or masks around their heads. A neighbor near the Goose Creek Bridge on Riverside Parkway reported that a white van was parked near where William Bennett's body was found and that around 5:38 am there was a noisy commotion with several people screaming and vehicle doors slamming. The van had reportedly left and returned to the crime scene several times.
There is some informed speculation by law enforcement officials that the Bennetts may have been abducted at another location and they were dropped off at the Goose Creek Bridge later by their assailants, that are now reported to have been at least three individuals. There is also the possibility that more than one white van was involved in the attack in order to throw off investigators. The hoods or masks reported to have been around the Bennetts' heads may also be a clue that their abduction invovled was a tortuous interrogation that saw the Bennetts fight back and that resulted in Mr. Bennett's murder and the attempted murder of hs wife.

Another? How many of these guys and gals are biting the dust these
days? I've heard about the murdered Scientists on Coast to Coast a while back in the field of BIO, Germ, Chemical and such but never a repeated effort to smother a CIA agent. To me it sounds like a new force is brewing and only the brainwashed are allowed to continue working on upcoming NWO assignments. I can't tell yet whether this is bad guy killing bad a$$ guy or bad guy killing good guy. Whose on our side.

Stanisic, who was arrested by Serbian officials in 2003, now faces charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including murder, at the Hague tribunal.
Although his trial has been suspended due to his ill health – and judges are currently waiting to receive expert medical reports before deciding how to proceed – he faces a potentially long prison sentence if he is eventually convicted.
Bozidar Spasic, a former official in the Yugoslav State Security Service, said he suspected that Stanisic's alleged contacts with the CIA were much closer and more personal than his job required.
Spasic insinuated that Stanisic was actually working for the CIA, rather than just cooperating with it.
Stanisic assisted CIA operatives in their search for grave sites and also helped the agency set up a network of secret bases in Bosnia, Lofgren reportedly said.
At the same time, according to the Hague indictment, Stanisic was allegedly “setting up death squads for Milosevic that carried out a genocidal campaign” in Croatia and Bosnia, noted the article.
According to Mijatovic, Stanisic began making contacts with countries other than Russia at the beginning of 1992, and in the following years, established strong ties not only with the US and Russia, but with the French and Chinese secret services as well.
Nato deliberately bombed the Chinese embassy in Belgrade during the war in Kosovo after discovering it was being used to transmit Yugoslav army communications.
According to senior military and intelligence sources in Europe and the US the Chinese embassy was removed from a prohibited targets list after Nato electronic intelligence (Elint) detected it sending army signals to Milosevic's forces.
The story is confirmed in detail by three other Nato officers - a flight controller operating in Naples, an intelligence officer monitoring Yugoslav radio traffic from Macedonia and a senior headquarters officer in Brussels.
They all confirm that they knew in April that the Chinese embassy was acting as a 'rebro' [rebroadcast] station for the Yugoslav army (VJ) after alliance jets had successfully silenced Milosevic's own transmitters.
The intelligence officer, who was based in Macedonia during the bombing, said: 'Nato had been hunting the radio transmitters in Belgrade. When the President's [Milosevic's] residence was bombed on 23 April, the signals disappeared for 24 hours.
When they came on the air again, we discovered they came from the embassy compound.'
Cynthia Bennett, the wife of William Bennett, has been hospitalized since March 22 and was physically unable to speak with investigators until recently.
She still has serious injuries and will need to undergo multiple surgeries, but her condition continues to improve each day.
Investigators said they hoped to interview her further, as her health improves.
The sheriff’s office is now looking for four to five people that they believe were involved in the attack of Cynthia Bennett and the murder of her husband. Each of these individuals has some knowledge of the incident that took place but varying degrees of involvement in the attack and homicide.
Two men with possible gang affiliations have been charged with capital murder and two other suspects are expected to be charged in the beating death of a Loudoun County man during a morning stroll with his wife last month, authorities said yesterday. The attack was a "random robbery gone bad," Loudoun Sheriff Stephen O. Simpson said.
