People murder each other all the time, but some murders are more suspect than others. According to a recent story reported on by NBC Connecticut, a Chinese researcher in the US working in Pennsylvania who was said to be very close to making a ‘major discovery’ about COVID-19 was murdered.
A medical researcher said to be on the “verge of making very significant” coronavirus findings was found shot to death over the weekend in Pennsylvania, officials said.
Bing Liu, 37, a researcher at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, was found dead Saturday inside a home in Ross Township, north of Pittsburgh, the Allegheny County medical examiner said. He had been shot in the head and the neck, the agency said.
An hour after Liu’s body was discovered, a second person, Hao Gu, 46, was found dead inside a car less than a mile away, the agency said. Ross Township police Detective Sgt. Brian Kohlhepp told NBC News that the men knew each other. Investigators believe Gu killed Liu before returning to his car, where he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Authorities are investigating a motive. (source)
