Mysterious death of founder Robert B. McKeon
In 2012 Robert McKeon died of "asphyxia due to neck compression" and the death was ruled a suicide. The examiner's office wouldn't give a time or place of death. The Darien, Connecticut police department said in a written statement that a man named Robert McKeon was found dead in his Darien home on Monday, and that "the death is not considered suspicious, but the incident is under investigation pending the results of the scheduled autopsy."
Owners of DynCorp
Veritas Capital acquired DynCorp and its subsidiaries December 12, 2004 from Computer Sciences Corporation for $850 million USD. DynCorp would later be sold to Cerberus Capital Management in 2010.
Owners of MZM (Athena Innovative Solutions)
Government procurement records show that MZM, which Wade started in 1993, did not report any revenue from prime contract awards until 2003. Most of its revenue has come from the agreement the Pentagon just cut off. But over the past three years it was also awarded several contracts, worth more than $600,000, by the Executive Office of the President. They include a $140,000 deal for office furniture in 2002 and several for unspecified "intelligence services."

Wade founded the defense contracting firm MZM Inc. (since renamed Athena Innovative Solutions Inc.), in 1993. On February 24, 2006, he pleaded guilty to paying then Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R. Calif.) more than $1 million in bribes in exchange for millions more in government contracts. Wade was one of four co-conspirators mentioned in Cunningham's plea agreement of November 28, 2005
