Home of slain Pentagon official searched
A team of police crime scene investigators on Tuesday searched the New Castle home of slain former Pentagon official John P. Wheeler III. They spent about four hours inside and left with a large paper bag and several manila envelopes stuffed with suspected evidence, the News Journal reports.
Investigators had not been to Wheeler's home since the initial days after his body was discovered at Wilmington's Cherry Island Landfill on the morning of Dec. 31. The Delaware Medical Examiner's Office has ruled that the 66-year-old was beaten to death during an assault.
Newark police, who are leading the investigation, said Tuesday that they still have no suspects in the case.
