|Died||29 November 1996 (Age 48)|
|Victim of||premature death|
Barbara Alice Wise was a "Commerce Department (International Trade Administration) secretary and associate of John Huang found bruised and partially nude in a locked office at Commerce. Cause of death unknown. 11/29/96"
Barbara Wise "was suspected of leaking Commerce documents exposing the Chinese espionage."
Wise was reportedly discovered by a co-worker at 7:45 a.m. "A D.C. police investigator said there was no outward sign of any cause of death. In addition, Sgt. Michael J. Farish, of the police homicide unit, said no obvious signs of foul play were found in Wise's office." On 1 December the Baltimore Sun reported that Washington Police ruled out foul play on 30 November.
"Did the President orchestrate the unusually hurried autopsy of Barbara Wise during his mysterious trip to the White House? Given the homicide rate in DC, the shortage of medical examiners and the backlog of suspicious deaths awaiting autopsy, how was the body of Ms. Wise able to jump to the head of the line and go under the knife less than 10 hours after being discovered?"
