Bizarre Circumstances Surround an Air Force Colonel’s Death — 48 HOURS MYSTERY — Saturday, March 28

Colonel Philip Shue (L); Shue with wife Tracy (R)



In the spring of 2005, two years after losing his life in a violent car crash near San Antonio, Texas, Air Force Col. Philip Michael Shue was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. But while his widow, Tracy, accepted the traditional tri-folded American flag in his honor, the circumstances surrounding Col. Shue’s death were anything but traditional.

The cause of death was never in dispute. Col. Shue had suffered fatal brain injuries as a result of the crash. But exactly what led to this accident was beyond curious. Shue’s chest had a large gash, both his nipples had been removed and duct tape was wrapped around both his wrists and his boots. This accident turned into a bizarre case, one that would launch several investigations, by the military, the Texas Rangers and the Kendall County Sheriff’s Department.

Was there a crime committed? There were endless theories surrounding Col. Shue’s death. Was he a troubled man, driven to mutilation and suicide? Was he abducted and tortured?

A series of letters may hold the cryptic answers and an extraordinary court ruling may finally help Col. Shue’s wife and friends find the justice they seek.

48 HOURS MYSTERY brought in private investigator Joe Moura to sort through the theories and unusual evidence as correspondent Troy Roberts reports on “The Curious Case Of Colonel Shue” Saturday, March 28 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. This broadcast is produced by Peter Henderson. Al Briganti is the executive editor. Susan Zirinsky is the executive producer.

  1. First let me say that my prayers are with all those facing such a tragedy.

    I was watching the 48 hours mystery show and something occured to me. I don’t remember any mention of how the murderer/murderers got him to drive his own car into the tree all by himself with no murderer in the car to be sure he actually hits a tree. Was he drugged? Did he lose too much blood?

    Again, I hope all involoved find peace with the tragic events.

    Thank you
