    Why did Pentagon aide trash his home days before his body was found dumped in landfill site?

    A top Pentagon aide trashed his own home just days before his body was found dumped in a landfill site, neighbours have claimed.

    John Wheeler appears to have unsheathed his cadet sword, smashed some plates in the sink and overturned a plant in his kitchen during a rampage through the property. The disclosure adds another layer to a mysterious and complex story surrounding one of Washington’s best advisers who served under three presidents during a decorated career.

    Though it is not clear why he would have trashed his own property or if he even carried out the attack himself, it is thought he may have had a breakdown of sorts in the days before his death.

    The 66-year-old was known to have battled bipolar disorder through a large part of his life.

    Neighbour Robert Dill said he found a heavy dusting of cleanser on the wood floor with a bare footprint on the powder. The house was in such a state that Mr Dill, who had gone around to investigate, thought he had stumbled across a crime scene.

    The body of the former Army officer, who was instrumental in building the iconic Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington DC, was discovered on a landfill in Wilmington, Delaware, on New Year’s Eve.

    Workers discovered him when a garbage truck containing his body completed its run at the Cherry Island landfill and threw his body out.

    This sounds just like something out of a movie plot.
    Makes you wonder if he wigged out and did it himself,
    or if someone was looking for something and trashed
    his place before killing him and dumping the body.

    It's a mystery. Linda Numbers actually knew the guy.

    LOL Megimoo! :D

    I remember Linda saying she knew him and that this
    was really odd behavior for what she knew of him.
    It sounds like one of those CIA cover-ups out of a movie.

    No, he was definitely odd - but I wouldn't have said to the extent we're hearing now. One article said he was bi-polar, and I would totally believe that.

    How likely could this be a distraction.

    I wonder if she corrected his English.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Do you think that's what drove him over the edge? :eek:

    Seriously, this is a sad case. Whatever his last days were like it's tragic for someone to wind up that way.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!
