Delaware police investigating the mysterious death of a prominent former Pentagon aide, John P. Wheeler 3d, said no new developments surfaced Thursday.
"We don't have a suspect, and we don't have a crime scene," said Newark Police Lt. Mark A. Farrall. He said Wheeler, 66, of New Castle, was last seen in surveillance video at the Nemours Building in downtown Wilmington at 8:30 p.m. Dec. 30.
Less than 14 hours later, his body fell from a sanitation truck being emptied at the Cherry Island Landfill in Wilmington.
Police said Wheeler, who was working as a consultant for Mitre Corp., a defense contractor, was scheduled to travel by train from Washington to Wilmington on Dec. 28.
