The Amador County Sheriff/Coroner Martin Ryan posted an update about the death of a DHS Whistleblower Philip Haney, who had blown the whistle on the Obama Administration who was allegedly erasing information on radical islamic jihadists who are here in the United States. Then, Haney went missing last Wednesday, and was found by his car on Friday, shot in the chest!

The Sheriff gave a video briefing Tuesday on the investigation into Philip Haney’s death, which had happened in Plymouth, California. He said, while the death scene made it appear a suicide, Ryan wants it known that a determination has not been made as to the cause of death.

Ryan said his office has received inquiries from across the country but cannot release more information while the investigation is ongoing. Ryan made clear that while he is getting help from the FBI and the Sacramento coroner’s office, he and his Sheriff’s office are in charge of the investigation and that it will be conducted thoroughly before a determination is made as to the cause of Haney’s death.

Text of the February 24 update from the Amador County Sheriff’s Office:

On February 22, 2020 the Amador County Sheriff’s Office released initial details regarding Philip Haney being found deceased in our jurisdiction. Mr. Haney was located in a park and ride open area immediately adjacent to State Highway 16 near State Highway 124. Highway 16 is a busy state highway and used as a main travel route to and from Sacramento. The location is less than 3 miles from where he was living.

Currently we have scheduled a forensic autopsy to be performed by forensic pathologists from the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office. Additionally we have reached out to our law enforcement partners in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to assist in analyzing documents, phone records and a lap top that were recovered from the scene and Mr. Haney’s RV. We are currently in possession of his vehicle, the firearm located at the scene, and his RV and we will be requesting evidence processing assistance from the FBI on those items as well.

Our investigators conducted a neighborhood canvas and interviewed his RV park neighbors on the day of the incident along with checking key areas for any video surveillance that may exist from that time. The investigators are continuing to follow-up with the overwhelming number of persons who are calling our office from throughout the United States asking for detailed information on our investigation.

Unfortunately, there was misinformation immediately being put out that we have determined Mr. Haney’s death to be a suicide. This is not the case. We are currently in the beginning phase of our investigation and any final determination as to the cause and manner of Mr. Haney’s death would be extremely premature and inappropriate. No determination will be made until all evidence is examined and analyzed.

This investigation is still active and will be ongoing. No further details will be provided at this time.

Interestingly, reports coming out from multiple sources have indicated that the Sheriff’s office was not equipped to handle professional hits, and thier office was inundated with calls, tying up their phones, computers, and other communications, with people who demanded further investigations with forensics, and professional investigative units, as to be able to evaluate and make a more accurate determination as to the cause of death!

As a result, the Amador County Sheriff decided to make a public announcement and turn over the investigation to agencies that could better identify the cause of death!
