The mysterious death of Air Force Col. Philip Shue, some six months ago, has all of Texas and the nation waiting to see what really led to the career officer’s fatal car crash near San Antonio.
Noted forensic pathologist, Dr. Cyril Wecht, hired by retired USAF Lt. Col. Tracy Shue [the victim’s wife] to do an accurate and impartial autopsy on her husband’s remains, will soon issue his report.
Sources tell MilitaryCorruption.com that the Air Force, controversial Bexar County Medical Examiner Vincent DiMaio, and County Attorney Bruce Curry could be “the big losers” if the Wecht autopsy result demolishes the initial finding of “suicide” in this bizarre case.
WAS INITIAL AUTOPSY REPORT A “COVER-UP?”
“They have staked everything on the ludicrous theory that Col. Shue somehow surgically sliced off both his nipples, cut off part of a finger, made a six inch incision in his chest and then drove his car straight at a tree - all in an effort to kill himself,” said a law enforcement officer, close to the case. "They could wind up big losers before this is over."
“What some of us think really happened is, is a case of abduction, torture, [duct tape had been wrapped around the ankles and wrists of the dead officer and the missing body parts were not found at the crash scene] and a man who desperately tried to drive home to his wife, but blacked out and crashed after losing a considerable amount of blood.”
The veteran cop, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said he thinks Shue was “snatched” a short time after he left his Boerne, Texas home last April 16, to go to work at the nearby U.S. Air Force Wilford Medical Center.
“There’s at least two hours between the time Shue left to go to work early that morning and the time his car crashed into trees on a grassy hill off I-10,” the source said. “During that time, the body mutilation could have taken place. Shue’s wrists and feet had been restrained with silver duct tape. It fits the M.O. [modus operandi] of an abduction and torture. Not a suicide.
“The colonel may well have been left for dead, but, ripping the duct tape to get free, bleeding heavily and in severe pain, I theorize Shue desperately tried to drive back to his home. Of course, he didn’t make it.”
The officer told MilitaryCorruption.com it is “not unusual” for the Air Force to try and “cover-up” a homicide by labeling it a “suicide.” He said this happens with other branches of the military too. “And the public is none the wiser.”
“I am sure the Air Force had a lot of influence on what DiMaio’s office ruled,” the veteran cop said. “Curry would be expected to go along with the phony ‘suicide’ finding. That makes everything easier for him. No ‘perp’ to hunt down. Just tie the case up in a nice little bundle and put it high up on the shelf, hopefully to be forgotten in time.”
A POWERFUL AND FEARED COUNTY ATTORNEY
[EDITOR’S NOTE: We found Bruce Curry to be very unpopular in certain law enforcement circles, especially Kendall County, Texas. Criticism directed at him was a common denominator in private interviews conducted with cops and investigators who feel they have good reasons to fear and loath the powerful county attorney.]
A TACTIC THAT COULD “BACKFIRE”
And what can Col. Shue’s widow, Tracy, expect if the Wecht autopsy disproves the original “suicide” finding?
“They may try to smear and slander her any way possible,” said the source. “A certain newspaper that has been the mouthpiece for the cover-up artists so far, might try and peddle a personal attack on this woman. But she is absolutely clean. We know that. They have to be damn careful they don’t stir up the public any more in her favor. That’s why it’s a dangerous game they are playing. It could backfire and blow up in their faces, big time!”
COMING NEXT WEEK: MilitaryCorruption.com
exposes how DiMaio’s specious claim Col. Shue didn’t try and call
home on his cell phone is unsupported by the evidence. Also, we will reveal
the medical examiner’s controversial past, including a 1997 whistleblower
lawsuit in which a chemist who worked for DiMaio claimed autopsy findings were
sometimes slanted to support police theories. The case was settled “out-of-court.”
