© 2009 MilitaryCorruption.com
All that was missing from the April 18th "48 Hours" broadcast about the mysterious death of Air Force Col. Philip Shue in Texas in 2003, was a full violin section and chorus of angels singing "hosanna" as "the tiny terror," Tracy Shue, did her best to convince us she had the "perfect marriage" with her self-described "soul-mate," late husband.
"The room lit up" whenever the colonel walked in the door, the wealthy widow gushed. We were treated to a home video from overseas where the dead officer pointed out a bedside pix of darling wife. They were "so much in love," chirped one of Tracy's neighbor groupies, in case we didn't get the point. Everything was just wonderful in that marriage. Or was it?
CBS appears to have been so eager to run the program (it had been postponed three times), they buckled under to Tracy's demands - neither MilitaryCorruption.com or her husband's parents (known to be highly critical of their very rich daughter-in-law), were interviewed or even contacted for balance.
The whole thrust of the program, other than adoration of Tracy, who sickeningly comes off as a combination of Joan of Arc and Mary Magdalene, is first wife Nancy Shue Timpson's the "guilty" one. After all, she's allegedly a Devil worshiper, and most certainly, fat and ugly. Therefore, she must be responsible for her former husband's bizarre death.
Yes, she took the fifth in her deposition. But that isn't solid proof that she was involved in her ex-hubby's strange demise. Apparently she has other things to hide, however, because most people would sue the hell out of anyone that said about them what Tracy did about her on national television.
IF ONE MILLION DOLLARS "INCENTIVE TO COMMIT MURDER,"
WHAT'S TWO MILLION BUCKS? TWICE THE "INCENTIVE?"
Before Tracy Shue turned on us and labeled our editor a "killer" and "predator," (besides stirring up a psycho nut in Georgia who, on the Internet raged that he was going to come out here to Arizona to teach our editor-in-chief a lesson (at the end of a gun) - he messed everything up when he revealed in his all cap-letter "rants" that he'd been in direct contact with the wealthy widow), she liked us a lot. Well, as long as we went along with her version of events.
All hell broke loose when we did what we should have done in the first place - "follow the money trail." Who stood to benefit the most, and who did, from Col. Shue's death?
"Philip's first wife held a million dollar insurance policy on his life," Tracy indignantly sniffed to us. "Why that's an incentive to commit murder!"
If we'd known about Tracy's TWO million dollar haul (combination of private life insurance policies and SGLI) that she didn't bother to inform us about, we might have wised up earlier and asked her pointedly: "If one million bucks is an incentive to commit murder, what's two? Twice that?"
MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM FORCES TRACY THE SHREW TO RETURN
$12,000 SHE TRIED TO SUCK OUT OF DEAD HUSBAND'S ELDERLY PARENTS
Be sure to read each one of our prior articles in the "related stories box" below. You'll see how we forced sweet little Tracy to return $12,000 to her dead husband's mom and dad (both past 90 years of age) that she squeezed out of them, whining over the phone: "I need the M-O-N-E-Y for the lawyers." Yeah, right.
That same week she'd got a quarter million greenbacks from Col Shue's military Servicemans Group Life Insurance policy. As for being "hard up" for cash, we wonder if the tiny terror was just trying to take advantage of her dead hubby's elderly, grief-stricken parents when she didn't reveal to them she was getting a fat death gratuity for her husband's active duty demise; a tax-free 80% "disability" pension every month; her active duty retirement pay - 52% of full-time pay for a retired light colonel - no "chump change" there; and a big monthly check for her colonel mate's "indemnity compensation."
Throw in a paid-for $350,000 home, fancy car and lots of goodies - Tracy likes expensive clothes and four-inch spike heels - and we wonder why it appears the wife who claimed to "adore" her "soul-mate" husband was so cruel to his parents and tried to grab their money.
She even "lied" to her mother-in-law, Miriam Shue, who informed us Tracy had promised to send Philip Shue's remains to Ohio for Christian burial. "When I called her and asked what was the delay," Mrs. Shue told MilitaryCorruption.com, " Tracy cruelly informed me that she'd had him cremated."
Anyway, when MilitaryCorruption.com exposed the shameful deed regarding the 12 grand, even her baby-faced attorney and close companion suggested she'd better give it back. After all, at the time, the dynamic duo were engaged in a court battle to shake loose a few million bucks from the USAA Insurance Company of San Antonio, Tex., and it "wouldn't look good" in front of a jury of common folks if Tracy's perceived GREED was brought to the forefront by a USAA lawyer.
SPINNING AN EMBARRASSING DEFEAT INTO SOME SORT OF "VICTORY"
The tiny terror, known in Boerne, Tex. for her temper tantrums and obnoxious "in-your-face behavior," was not pleased to have failed to get a penny from USAA, but "spun" the judge's comment that Col. Shue was "murdered" and the case a "homicide" as best she could. It's not every day that you roll the dice and gamble three quarters of a million dollars and four years of your life on hitting the money jackpot and come up empty.
Like certain crooked TV evangelists fleecing the suckers, there are always those who will "follow" in the sainted one's footsteps, no matter how much dog "doo-doo" she tracks into the house. Tracy has a small band of followers left in Boerne, and nothing anyone could say or prove would make any difference to them. They're dazzled by the wealthy widow and in deep denial.
AN "INSATIABLE PSYCOPATHIC NEED FOR ATTENTION"
Many of the folks who wrote in on the CBS home page and commented on the one-sided TV show were fooled or uninformed as to the real facts of the case, but one writer, "Caroline," hit the nail right on the head.
"Well, it's almost the perfect crime," she wrote. "The culprit is so obvious. Who profits is the usual approach in a homicide investigation.
"(Tracy) walked in the end, with a cool $1.8 million, but cannot give up her insatiable psychopathic need for attention. Plus, she had the gall to sue another insurance company (USAA) for failing to cancel the (first wife's) policy. (Tracy Shue) wanted even MORE money!
" . . . She (Tracy) pushed the envelope right to the edge. Hope the FBI starts to put some heat on her."
Don't worry, Caroline. If you knew what we do now, but can't publish yet for obvious reasons, you would rest easy that justice WILL finally be done. Even in this case. The "perfect crime" has at last come undone.
AS FOR CBS, ED MURROW MUST BE SPINNING IN HIS GRAVE
As for the one-time "Tiffany Network" and their pathetic attempt at "journalism," Edward R. Murrow has got to be spinning in his grave.
We are looking forward to an entirely different program from NBC "DATELINE," who have not buckled to any demands. That's coming in the next few months, just before a certain someone gets handcuffs slapped on and is "perp-walked" for the cameras.
So shameless was the CBS "cave-in" to Tracy Shue, that one ham-handed bit of censorship blew up in their faces.
Remember the split-second mention of what each widow got in terms of insurance pay-outs on dead Col. Shue? It was stressed that first wife, Nancy, got a cool million bucks, and then, very quickly, it was uttered: ". . . his widow, Tracy, got one million point eight."
Hello? CBS is a major network. They have news writers that follow the Associated Press stylebook. So do we at MilitaryCorruption.com, as we did during the many years our editor-in-chief was a mainstream media news correspondent.
No journalist in his right mind would try a trick like squeezing by such an awkward, ungrammatical phrase: " . . . one million, point eight."
The first thing the news director would shout is: "One million, point eight WHAT?" The proper and accepted way of describing the sum of $1,800,000 is as follows: "One point eight million dollars" or "Nearly two million dollars."
Why do we suspect that "baby face," Tracy's slick and very well-paid attorney, got out his blue pencil and tried to downplay the fact his client scored twice the loot "villain" Nancy got? CBS must have genuflected so much they gave Tracy and her legal beagle "script approval" as well. Maybe that explains why CBS ratings are in the toilet and people don't trust what they see on that once-respected network.
TRACY SHREW - IS SHE A BITTER, MIDDLE-AGED WOMAN
WITH A BIG BANKROLL?
Time has not been kind to the "tiny terror." Tracy, these days, looks more like her attorney's "mommy" than his main squeeze.
Of course, we don't know if their close relationship over five years had led to more than a chaste "kiss" on the cheek, but the shrew, looking every day of her 54 years, has not aged well, despite her mountain of money.
We wonder how the two get along these days after "baby-face" - who scored hundreds of thousands of dollars - "MOO-LA" from his "cash cow" - since 2004, failed to win a dime in the battle for "big bucks" against the USAA Insurance Co.
Yes, we know Tracy and her spin-meisters have heralded the judges's "crumbs" thrown in her direction: Col. Shue was "murdered" and the case a "homicide," but that, and a couple bucks, will get you a cup of coffee and no more. No way can anyone call THAT a courtroom "triumph."
And if you don't think the USAA case was about big bucks, we have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you - real cheap.
We suspect it was old-fashioned GREED from greenback-loving Tracy that caused her to bet a huge bankroll on acquiring more millions for her already considerable money "pile."
Not to worry. The Shrew has so many government checks landing in her mailbox each month, her biggest problem is deciding which big one to cash first. And anyway, we hear Tracy has landed a strange high-paying Air Force civilian job. We're sure she is worth every cent the taxpayers are providing her.
TRACY'S COL. SHUE "ABDUCTION" AND "ESCAPE" STORY FULL OF HOLES
We recall a conversation (captured on tape, by the way) where Tracy described her married life with Philip as a "fairy tale." LOL! Her story is a "fairy tale" is more like it.
If Col. Shue escaped from his "captors" and fled in his car until the tragic deadly crash on Route 10 in Boerne, Tex., can the terrible-tempered one explain WHY the colonel was wearing his t-shirt, BDU uniform blouse (four buttons) and had his seat-belt fastened before he collided with a tree?
Dear reader, if you had just had your body mutilated and both your nipples surgically and expertly sliced off (Big mistake there, kids. You should have made it look like "amateurs" did it), do you think you would bother to put on your t-shirt, button four buttons and fasten your seat-belt before you sped off and tried to reach safety? Of course not!
The seat belt fastened, we suspect, was to prop Shue up in the car out on the access road. Someone else drove him out there, and we have a very good idea as to who (they) were. If the final story of this incredible case turns out to be centered on greed and insurance fraud - note we are not saying which widow was behind the crime, if they were at all - we are sure the upcoming book on this case will be a best-seller and major motion picture.
CONSTANT REFERENCES TO WEDDED BLISS RING HOLLOW
Shakespeare said it best: "Methinks the lady doth protest too much."
All of Tracy's clumsy and annoying references to marital bliss and non-stop adoration between the cash-strapped colonel and his high-maintenance wife may just come back to bite her.
Sometimes it's better to shun the spotlight and just go off and enjoy your big bank account. This time, we hope, for her sake, Tracy hasn't flown too near the flame. If she has, she'll have a long time to "contemplate" any mistakes she may have made.
Like the old politician once said: "You can't bomb the polls after the election's over." Well, nothing Tracy or anyone else can do will change one thing that happened on April 16, 2003 when a good man was killed and his widow and ex-wife became instant millionaires.
