The modest city of Wilsonville, Oregon, is most known for its... well, it’s not known for anything really, but it was the home of a government whistleblower who ‘allegedly’ committed suicide.

The bloated body of Phil Schneider was discovered by Detective Randy Harris, of the Clackamas County Sheriff Department, on January 17, 1996.

Seeing no sign of struggle or defensive wounds on the decedent, the detective hastily determined that Phil’s cause of death was a stroke; not uncommon for an overweight gentleman like Schneider.

And for the blood pooled up on Phil’s carpet?

Simple really, a brain hemorrhage occurred while he was stroking out, after which he falls face first onto his wheelchair, bopping his head, and driving out the blood, which “spilled out of his mouth.”

Oddly though, Phil’s body was removed from the scene without the presence of a coroner, a strict violation of Oregon State Law. Friends and family members found this odd, but were more concerned that both the detective and medical examiner overlooked the possible murder weapon wrapped tightly around Phil’s neck.

Exposing A Top-Secret US Navy Experiment

Eighteen months prior to his demise, Phil Schneider traveled the country exposing top-secret government projects; these secret goings-on were funded by what he referred to as the “Black Budget”.

One popular Black Budget lecture topic of Phil’s was the US Navy’s top secret experiment, known as the Philadelphia Project.
