Boeing whistleblower John Barnett found dead in truck with gun in hand, suicide note
05/22/2024 // Ethan Huff // Views

The official ruling about Boeing whistleblower John Barnett's passing is that he committed suicide, leaving behind a suicide note and gun in hand inside his truck.

In the note, which appeared furiously written, Barnett cursed Boeing. He was found inside his truck outside a Holiday Inn in Charleston, S.C., the locale of Boeing's outsourced assembly plant.

March 9, the day Barnett was found deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, he was scheduled to testify against Boeing concerning allegations that under-pressure workers at the North Charleston plant are deliberately fitting substandard parts to aircraft as its moves down the assembly line.

The Charleston Police Department concluded that despite the suspicious nature of Barnett's untimely – or perfectly timed, depending on your perspective – death, he had to have ended his own life.

"All findings were consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound," reads a report from Charleston County Coroner Bobbi Jo O'Neal, who concluded that Barnett's death "is best deemed, 'suicide.'"

What really happened to John Barnett?

Barnett was discovered locked inside his car with the key fob inside his pants pocket. There was reportedly no sign of forced entry into the car or any evidence of physical struggle, or so we are told.

Barnett's phone and hotel key card showed no suspicious activity and hotel security footage confirmed he left the building by himself before returning a few minutes later to park his car.

The vehicle with Barnett's body inside of it remained undisturbed until the following day. The gun found in his hand at the scene was legally purchased in 2000 and registered under his name.

There was also a notebook found at the scene in which Barnett's alleged suicide note was written. The only fingerprints found on the notebook were Barnett's.

Officials obtained records confirming that Barnett had a history of mental health problems that only worsened during the time of his lawsuit against Boeing. Maybe it really is just as simple as Barnett taking his own life after realizing he got in over his head?

Along with the suicide letter, the notebook also contained writings from Barnett against Boeing, several of which were filled with profanity.

"I CAN'T DO THIS ANY LONGER!!! ENOUGH!! F*** BOEING!!!" one of them read.

"Bury me face down so Boeing and their lying-a** leaders can kiss my a**," reads another.

In the suicide note, Barnett ended it with an address to his loved ones.


Before retiring in 2017, Barnett had worked at Boeing for 31 years. Seventeen of those years were spent working as a quality manager. Up until the day he died, Barnett was participating in legal interviews as part of his ongoing lawsuit.

Back in March, attorneys Robin Turkewitz and Brian Knowles obtained a full list of their client Barnett's grievances against Boeing, which were formalized as part of the lawsuit that was filed in 2021.

One of Barnett's complaints was that Boeing retaliated against him back in 2014 after he voiced concerns about an issue at the plant, which assembles a 787 model known as the Dreamliner as well as the 737 Max, Boeing's best-selling plane.

Ever since a panel blew off a 737 Max during an Alaska Airlines flight back in January, Boeing has come under increased scrutiny as whistleblowers come forward to tell all they know about the company's alleged wrongdoings.
