Of all people, a major in the
Salvation Army is shot and killed in front of his children
I did a search on Major Phillip Wise of Arkansas and found lots of information about this wonderful man and his very sad and tragic death at the hand of a couple of thugs. Not to mention the horror of his children who witnessed their father’s death, children probably looking forward to a visit from Santa that very night; children of only 4, 6 and 8 years of age.
There were no hits to stories with any information about the capture of the cretins who kill Major Wise so we put this as a crime investigation in process.
Salvation Army Major Murdered and Robbed in Front of His Children on Christmas Eve
Major Philip Wise was returning to the office around 4:00 p.m. Chrsitmas Eve after dropping off two bell ringers at their homes on the last day of the Red Kettle fund drive. He was approaching the building with his three children, ages 4, 6 and 8, when two young men demanded money and one of them shot Wise to death.
This fine man’s wife, Cindy, will continue to serve in the Salvation Army. A $10,000 reward is offered for any information leading to his arrest.
I must imagine that with the man’s three children witnessing the crime that investigators have some sort of description to go on. Two of the children were old enough to have noted the race of the perps, perhaps the way they talked, what was said during the robbery. The oldest might be able to help with a composite drawing of the suspects although I haven’t seen any such thing yet released to the public.
I don’t think these creeps are going to get away with this horrible crime. God will help bring these perps to justice as Philip Wise served in the service of the Lord. Somebody, somewhere, is going to turn these guys, of guy, in, if for nothing else but the reward.
We’ll be following this case closely.
