The tragic death of Boeing whistleblower John Barnett has sent shockwaves through the aviation industry and beyond.

It has now been reported that Barnett’s cause of death is said to be a ‘self-inflicted’ gunshot wound. According to precious reports, Barnett was found inside his vehicle outside a hotel in Charleston, South Carolina on March 9.

This devastating event occurred during a crucial moment in Barnett’s life as he was testifying against his former employer, Boeing, in a whistleblower retaliation suit.

Barnett’s untimely passing has raised serious questions and concerns, prompting calls for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death.

John Barnett’s association with Boeing spans over three decades, having dedicated 32 years of his life to the company before retiring in 2017.

During his tenure at Boeing, Barnett served in various capacities and gained extensive knowledge about the inner workings of the aircraft manufacturer. However, his final years at the company were marred by troubling allegations that he brought to light through his deposition against Boeing.

According to reports from the Daily Mail, Barnett’s death occurred during a break in depositions where he had been making explosive claims about under-pressure workers intentionally fitting sub-standard parts to aircraft on the assembly line.

These allegations shed light on serious concerns regarding quality control and safety within one of the world’s leading aerospace companies. The circumstances surrounding Barnett’s death have prompted widespread speculation and concern about potential motives behind his tragic end.

Following the discovery of Barnett’s body inside his truck with a gunshot wound to the head, Charleston police launched an investigation into the incident.

A suicide note was reportedly found next to him along with a ‘silver handgun’ in his hand with his finger on the trigger. These distressing details have led to questions about whether there might be more to this tragic event than initially meets the eye.

Barnett’s sudden and unexpected death has left many reeling, including those who were closely involved with him during his legal battle against Boeing.

His lawyers expressed disbelief at the notion that he would take such drastic measures while actively involved in seeking justice for himself and others affected by alleged wrongdoing at Boeing.

“John was in the midst of a deposition in his whistleblower case, which finally was nearing the end,” said Barnett’s lawyers according to The New York Post. “He was in very good spirits and really looking forward to putting this phase of his life behind him and moving on.” These sentiments paint a stark contrast to what appears to be an abrupt and tragic end to Barnett’s life.

In light of these developments, it is imperative that authorities conduct a thorough investigation into John Barnett’s death.

The circumstances surrounding this tragedy demand an exhaustive examination to ensure that all possible factors contributing to this loss are carefully scrutinized.

The official report from Charleston County coroner Bobbi Jo O’Neal stated that all findings were consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

While these findings may suggest suicide as the cause of death, it is crucial for authorities and investigators to leave no stone unturned when examining such high-profile cases with far-reaching implications for workplace safety and accountability.

The apparent incongruence between John Barnett’s demeanor prior to his passing and the circumstances surrounding it raises important questions about what might have driven him to take such drastic action while engaged in legal proceedings against Boeing.

It underscores the need for thorough scrutiny not only into how he died but also into what might have led up to such an extreme decision if indeed it was intentional.

This tragic event has sparked concerns within both legal circles and industry watchdogs regarding potential threats faced by whistleblowers who come forward with critical information against powerful corporations like Boeing.

Whistleblowers often risk their careers, personal well-being, and even their lives when they choose to expose misconduct or malpractice within organizations.

As Professor Jennifer Pacella from Georgia State University College of Law noted: “Whistleblowers are often retaliated against by their employers…because they dare speak out about misconduct or illegal activity.”

  • Where did the gun come from who’s gun was used. Smoke and mirrors again. Whistleblowers want the truth too come out they don’t kill them selves the truth maters to them. Clinton hit job??

  • I can’t vouch for the accuracy of what I long ago read somewhere, but years ago I read that it is considered very suspicious to find an alleged “head-shot suicide” with the gun still in the hand of the body, because it usually would be dropped or thrown in a spasm.
    Police detectives with decades of experience, if you are reading this story and reading this comment: I hope you will comment on this so-called “finger-still-on-the-trigger” story.

    • Norman, your absolutely correct.
      A gunshot to the head doesn’t cause the body to develop rigor. immediately as the murderer would like the public to believe, therefore the weight of the handgun will drop from the hand.
      Just like the Clinton’s victims in which every single one of them committed BS suicide, that’s way too many victims to be associated with the Clinton’s to go out and take their own lives while the Coroner’s and Law Enforcement are paid off to look the other way and rule every victim a suicide..

  • Was he “friends ” with Hillary Clinton? Yet another honest person suicided! Hope these people rot in Sheol!

  • It would be very disturbing to an employee who worked 32 years for a Company and became a whistleblower. I’m sure it would affect him constantly to work that long for a company whom he must have loved or he wouldn’t have remained for so many years. Becoming a whistleblower because he knew the company was being negligent and began retaliations against him were ridiculous, but certainly doesn’t mean the employee was going to kill himself. THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

  • He may have been threatened with the lives of his family if he DIDN’T shoot himself. Big Corp. ‘operatives’ are chosen because they have no conscience, and make organized criminals look like pikers.

  • The fact alone where shooting victim is found with the finger on the trigger smells crime 100%. No serious person can believe this to be suicide. This has all the signs of Clinton victims.

  • He was murdered and then they simply said he killed himself, happens all the time in communist ameriKa now. How anyone cannot see what is going on right before their very eyes is the real scary part though. I think they see it and are afraid to admit it in the climate we have now in the district of communist.

  • Funny how anything around democrats seems to end with a bad case of clintonside! And the law forgetting how to do an investigation after the media tells them what happened!

  • Tox report? CCTV coverage in area? Many suicides are actually murder. If he was drugged then his hand used to pull the trigger. Sounds like a hit dressed up as a suicide.

  • I spent many years in Law Enforcement and many years in the US Army…..
    You can find the facts I am about to give you for yourself if you look…..

    When a person shoots themselves in the head – the body spasms, the hands open wide – and the arms open wide…. RAPIDLY…..
    Any weapon held in the hand is THROWN away from the body……

    SO the claim the weapon was in his hand with his finger on the trigger – would require physics any responsible investigator KNOWS are impossible….

    This man was MURDERED… and Law Enforcement knows it……………..

  • Would love to be able to ask the ME if she/he checked for “trauma to the skull”, or topology test for drugs in the system, possibly from chloroform?? That would give a “killer” time and opportunity to “pull the trigger, finish the victim off and position the weapon”. Just sayin – – – Is it time for a redo??

  • Did he have gunshot residue on his hands? Were his fingerprints on the pistol? Which hand was the pistol nearest? Inquiring minds want to know. I know , too much NCIS.
