The probe into how a former Pentagon official ended up in a Delaware landfill took a strange, sad turn Wednesday when video surfaced of him stumbling around in a daze days before he died.
Dressed in a dark suit with no tie or overcoat, carrying his left shoe in his right hand, John Wheeler looked lost and confused as he wandered in a Wilmington parking garage on Dec. 29.
Police said they have other surveillance video showing him inside a historic Wilmington building that houses the headquarters of chemical giant DuPont on the evening of Dec. 30, hours before he was found dead.
