It's been a long, frustrating six years since highly-respected Air Force Col. Philip Shue was killed in a bizarre car crash on a busy Texas highway.
Both his former wife and hard-charging widow made millions in insurance money in the wake of the medical officer's mysterious demise.
Now, MilitaryCorruption.com has learned a bombshell book is being written by a top investigator and his newspaper reporter wife that we're told will "tear the lid off" the truth as to what really took place in that case on April 16, 2003.
WIDOW FINANCIALLY "WELL-HEELED" IN WAKE OF HUBBY'S DEATH
Sources say Tracy Shue, called the "tiny terror" by some citizens of Boerne, Tex., annoyed at what they perceive as her "self-righteous" attitude, wonder how the fiery "in-your-face" widow could become so wealthy, so fast (see related stories box at end of this story), from - what appears, at least on the face of it - to be a terrible tragedy.
We have learned the rich widow had some two million dollars in life insurance money on her "soul mate" hubby from her self-described "perfect marriage," which she breathlessly told us was "like a fairy tale." She had sniffed to us in 2003 that first wife Nancy had a one million dollar policy ("Why, that's an incentive to commit MURDER!") on the senior colonel. What then, is a two million buck payout - twice the incentive? At the time, we were unaware of the widow's large insurance interests. She neglected to tell us about that. Wonder why? MilitaryCorruption.com was still her "favorite web site" back then, when we were still "in the dark" about all the facts and singing the sainted-one's praises.
Of course, in all innocence, we'd failed to "follow the money trail," and were unskeptical of Tracy's "courageous" quest to remove the SUICIDE ruling made in her husband's death. We believed her when she said her only goal was to "clear my husband's name." It didn't occur to us there might be a more "compelling" reason. Lots of them.
Now, years later, after being libeled by her in print as a "predator" and "serial killer . . . like Jeffrey Dahmer" (he "ate" his homosexual victims, after killing them), as well as experiencing threats of violence from a psycho nut in Georgia who stupidly revealed in one of his Internet rants he'd been "in touch" with Tracy Shue, our editor-in-chief is apparently off The Widow Shue's Christmas card list.
TRACY SAID TO BE "FRANTIC" TO STOP PUBLICATION OF TELL-ALL BOOK
Fast forward to 2009, and we find the shrew is "frantic" to stop the Porterfield book, instructing her dwindling band of followers to not cooperate with the Texas investigator on the Col. Shue case. Since she's apparently done filing "big buck" lawsuits seeking more millions of dollars (she lost a public court battle last year with USAA of San Antonio, Tex.), and apparently is no longer campaigning against local elected officials - never under-estimate an aggressive woman with a "mountain of moneybags" at her disposal - one would think she'd welcome any professional, objective look at what might have happened to her "beloved" hubby. But in a futile meeting at his home in Boerne, and later, rambling three-hour phone call to author Porterfield, Tracy apparently felt threatened when she was politely but firmly told she'd have no control over what might be written.
We are aware of some of the fascinating revelations contained in this future best-seller, but out of respect for the brave Texan writing the tome - it is not pleasant to be an "object of ire" by the tiny terror - we cannot reveal what his comprehensive and far-reaching investigation has turned up. But it's not hard to imagine this book will have the wealthy widow pacing the halls at night like Lady MacBeth. We already are well aware the diminutive diva is a self-described "night owl."
Besides our forcing "Tracy the Shrew" to return $12,000 to her dead husband's elderly parents - she had wheedled it out of them in the first place by claiming she "needed" the cash to "pay the lawyers" - we disclosed the former USAF nurse not only hauls down a big Air Force (lieutenant colonel) retirement check every month, but got hundreds of thousands of dollars in SGLI (Serviceman's Group Life Insurance) money days after Col. Shue's death; collects an 80% "disability" pension from her military service; received a large death gratuity from the Air Force (her husband died on active duty); gets a hefty DIC (indemnity compensation) payment monthly; and allegedly gets 60% of her deceased hubby's retirement pay for 27 years military service.
"Why don't I get it all?" the wealthy widow indignantly snorted to us one time on the telephone. "He earned it."
It's been said that Tracy's biggest problem the first of each month is going to the mailbox and deciding which fat government check to cash first. In this difficult economy, we peasants should have such "difficulties."
OH, TO BE A "BUG ON THE WALL" AT TRACY'S TEXAS MANSION
While the aging, retired Air Force nurse (she's 55, and "looking it" more and more each day) has a big bank balance, we wonder if she'd welcome the FBI re-entering the Col. Shue case? Again, not to reveal our hand, or what we know, but is it possible a "trail" exists that could lead to "insurance fraud?" We certainly hope not, as we prefer to believe the "tiny terror" is as pure and innocent as newly-fallen snow. Butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. She's not a narcissistic, mean little b - - - -, but simply a misunderstood woman whose devotion to her dead husband deserves our respect and admiration.
Those of you who saw and cringed at the recent CBS "48 Hours" program "starring" Tracy Shue, portraying the adoring wife, will be sure to watch a somewhat different program being prepared by a rival network. Again, we apologize for not "spilling the beans" as to what they have uncovered, but don't want to spoil the surprise. We'd sure like to be a "bug on the wall" in Boerne when the wealthy widow gets a look at that show!
We've always tried to be fair to "Tracy the Shrew," despite her unpleasant demeanor. Therefore, we reiterate our offer to her she is welcome to utilize as much space as she wishes on MilitaryCorruption.com to "refute" (if she can), our criticism of her conduct and strange reluctance to assist Mr. Porterfield in his honest attempt to write a factual book about The Widow Shue's "wonderful" marriage and husband's mysterious death.
Perhaps we may have been unkind, commenting on Tracy's odd choice of footwear - four-inch spike heels on grass - worn at her husband's memorial service at Arlington National Cemetery. It's not like we claimed, however, she wore fishnet stockings and wielded a whip in her hand. The tiny terror was most demure at the ceremony, although she did dance up a storm at the party later. That Dixieland Band was top notch. Tracy tells us that such an elaborate and expensive "blow-out" was just what her hubby would have wanted. Maybe she's right.
