911 Witness Wendy Burlingame Murdered

Wendy Burlingame -- Daughter of Alleged Flight 77 Pilot



Wendy Burlingame, 32, and her two dogs died when flames ripped through her 10th-floor apartment in Guttenberg, Hudson County.

Burlingame was the daughter of American Airlines pilot Charles (Chick) Burlingame, whose plane crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

"It's just an extreme tragedy," said Tim Sumner, who knew Wendy Burlingame from the 9/11 Families survivor group. "It's an amazing blow to that family."

Wendy Burlingame's aunt, Debra Burlingame, a member of the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation board, was too heartbroken to speak.

The fire broke out about 12:30 a.m. in the Galaxy Towers apartment Burlingame shared with her fiancé, Kevin Roderick.

Neighbors said Burlingame moved into the apartment overlooking the Hudson River about a month ago.
 
Roderick escaped the fire.

Firefighters battled the stubborn blaze for about three hours before bringing it under control.
 
Firefighters found Burlingame's body in a hallway between the kitchen and a bedroom, investigators said.

"It is suspicious at this point because the cause and origin have not been established," Hudson County Prosecutor Edward De Fazio said.
There has never been a fire related incident in the history of the Galaxy.
 
There are smoke detectors in every apartment and small portable fire extinguishers are available.
 
Fire alarms, sprinkler systems and periodic fire drills and alarm testing, all add to your safety.
Roderick, an Army veteran, escaped unscathed when the deadly blaze broke out in the bedroom at 12:03 a.m.

Hudson County Prosecutor Edward De Fazio said that "drinking might have been involved" but did not elaborate.

Burlingame's body was found in the hallway between the kitchen and bedroom.
 
The couple's two dogs also died.

Police questioned and released Roderick.
 
He told them he thought Burlingame "was behind him" when he fled the smoky apartment."

So the daughter of the pilot of American Airlines Flight 77 dies in a suspicious apartment fire in an apartment complex that has never had a fire before.

She's then locked in the apartment by her boyfriend, who is 'Ex'-Army.

Something doesn't smell right.
