Yup, blunt force trauma. So apparently he was startled and ran into a tree or power line.

Just to put it out there, last checked the CIA was a little more adapt at murder than punching someone in the head then dumping them into a dumpster.

Just saying, still very interesting, Wheeler is tied to Minot \.

I found the timeline at your link interesting. Very strange all around. On the one hand it does seem as if Wheeler might have been slipped some kind of disorienting agent. But if so; to what purpose? If it was a hit why let him wander for two days?

It is known that the CIA has used various drugs to disorient a target for purposes of discrediting them. So I guess that's possible--someone wanted him to come off as crazy, but it back-fired and he was beaten to death by a person(s) on the street?

The smokebomb set off at his neighbor's house is an oddity. On the surface it would fit the "Wheeler just bugged out" theory.

The T.V. blaring around the clock could be somehow significant, although the timeline is a little unclear on dates & where Wheeler was during that time.

I'm also curious as to the law firm he visited. Did he know any of the Attorneys there? Did they give him the train fare he asked for? Was he disoriented then? I'm gonna Google that law firm.


Dec. 13: John P. Wheeler III parks his vehicle at a garage on Martin Luther King Boulevard near the Wilmington train station.

A neighbor reports that for four days over Christmas, the television in Wheeler’s Third Street home in Old New Castle was blaring around the clock.

Dec. 26: Wheeler posts a photo of Manhattan snowstorm that he took from his condo on an electronic forum for 1966 graduates of West Point.

Dec. 28: Wheeler is believed to be on an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington.

5 p.m. -- Wheeler's last response to an ongoing e-mail conversation concerning West Point and college football.

11:30 p.m. -- Firefighters discover a smoke bomb in a house under construction across the street from Wheeler's. He and that home's owners had been involved in a legal dispute. Officials have not linked Wheeler's death to the smoke bomb incident.

State fire officials report finding several low-powered devices -- commonly used to smoke out small animals. There are no suspects but investigators had hoped to speak to Wheeler.

Dec. 29:

8:48 a.m. -- Cabbie Roland Spence picks up Wheeler outside the Wilmington train station and drops him off at the corner of 11th and Orange streets.

6 p.m. -- Wheeler enters the Happy Harry's on Del. 9 near New Castle and asks the pharmacist for a ride to Wilmington. Unable to give Wheeler a ride, the pharmacist offers to call a cab. Wheeler declines and leaves.

6:40 p.m. -- Wheeler enters the parking lot adjacent to the county courthouse in Wilmington holding his right shoe in his left hand and telling a Colonial Parking attendant his briefcase has been stolen. He is seen on surveillance video shuffling back and forth, apparently confused and disoriented, before he leaves about 25 minutes later.

Dec. 30:

3:30 p.m. -- Wheeler is spotted in the area of 10th and Orange streets in Wilmington.

Wheeler visited the 10th-floor offices of the Connolly Bove Lodge & Hutz law firm in the Nemours building and asked to speak to a managing partner. He also asked for train fare before leaving.

8:30 p.m. -- Surveillance video captures Wheeler wandering through the Nemours Building at 10th and Orange streets. Several people approach him because he appears disoriented or confused. Wheeler declines their help. He is dressed differently from the day before.

8:42 p.m. -- Wheeler is picked up on surveillance video leaving the Nemours Building through doors on the 11th Street side. He then continues southeast on 11th Street, walking through the Hotel du Pont valet parking area, crossing over Market Street, and is last seen walking on the west sidewalk of 11th Street, toward the city's East Side.

Dec. 31:

4:20 a.m. -- A Waste Management refuse truck starts its route through Newark, emptying trash bins, including one containing Wheeler's body.

10 a.m. -- Wilmington police are called to investigate a body found at Cherry Island Landfill.

Medical Examiner's Office rules the death a homicide.

2 p.m. -- Newark police are contacted after it is determined the body came from there.

Jan. 2:

Newark police identify the 66-year-old Wheeler as the victim.

Newark police crime-scene team spends the day at Wheeler's home.

Jan. 4: Wilmington detectives ask Sunday Breakfast Mission workers if Wheeler has stayed in their shelter. He has not.

Jan. 5: Newark investigators are spotted near several bins near Newark Shopping Center. Police also ask at least one business there for security video of parking lot.

A City Cab driver is questioned by police as to why Wheeler's cell phone contains his phone number. Other cabdrivers have been questioned through the week.

Jan. 28: The state Medical Examiner’s Office said Wheeler’s death was a result of blunt force trauma after being assaulted.

Connoly Bove Lodge & Hutz is involved in a number of arenas that could possibly have bearing on the Wheeler mystery. Offices in Wilmington, DE - Washington, DC - Los Angeles, CA. Some of their areas of practice include:

▪ Antitrust
▪ Copyrights
▪ Counseling
▪ Due Diligence
▪ International Trade Commission
▪ Licensing and Transactions
▪ Patent Interferences
▪ Patent Litigation
▪ Patent Prosecution
▪ Patent Reissue and Reexamination
▪ Trademarks
▪ Trademark and Copyright Litigation
▪ Unfair Competition and Trade Secrets
▪ Venture Capital and Emerging Growth

And they also handle Banking and Financing matters.

This link is a list of some of the patents they are involved in. Some interesting and sometimes scary stuff there. I would love to hear other opinions on the patent list.
I don't know if any of this is relevant or not, but it does raise some questions.

The many different countries they come from too is wild.
