Charleston Police release investigation report of Boeing whistleblower death [View all]

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston Police Department on Friday released their findings in the death of a Boeing whistleblower.

John Barnett, 62, was found dead inside his truck with a gunshot wound to his head outside of the Holiday Inn located at 301 Savannah Highway. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Barnett, who worked for Boeing for 32 years, filed a whistleblower complaint alleging safety concerns. The United States Department of Labor was working through the discovery phase of its investigation and is set to begin hearings on that complaint this June.

Police said they found no evidence of forced entry or a struggle inside the vehicle. The orange 2015 Dodge Ram truck’s key fob was found in Barnett’s pocket.

The Charleston County Coroner’s Office determined Barnett’s death to be a suicide.
