Assistant research Professor Bing Liu was murdered in his home with another Chinese national discovered dead from a self-inflicted wound in his car parked nearby. The spooky part is that Liu was on the verge of a major breakthrough regarding the cellular mechanisms of the scary new coronavirus. Work which may shed light on where it came from.
Death of research expert not a conspiracy, police claim
Ross Township police are downplaying any Deep State conspiracy theories in the homicide death of a Chinese COVID-19 research professor. The body of 37-year-old Bing Liu was discovered by his wife on Saturday in their suburban home near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He “was shot multiple times.”
At the time of the shooting, estimated around noon, both the front and rear patio doors of the Elm Court townhouse were open, allowing the assailant “unobstructed access to the residence.” The autopsy revealed “Mr. Liu was shot in the head, neck, torso and an extremity.”
Liu was reportedly “close to a breakthrough” in his research work at the University of Pittsburgh medical school but authorities are leading the public to believe that they feel the murder-suicide was the result of a “lengthy dispute regarding an intimate partner.” All that police are confirming for now, is that “both men are Chinese nationals,” and that “they knew each other.”
Zero evidence it’s connected to his work
“We have found zero evidence that this tragic event has anything to do with employment at the University of Pittsburgh,” Ross police Sgt. Brian Kohlhepp said in a prepared statement. Liu’s death has nothing to do with “any work being conducted at the University of Pittsburgh and the current health crisis affecting the United States and the world,” he insists.
Even so, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been called in. “Due to the fact that the individuals involved are not United States citizens and in accordance with long-standing protocol, our review has been forwarded to federal authorities,” Sgt. Kohlhepp explains. It has nothing to do with the research he maintains.
Everyone else in America is glad the Feds are looking into it. The timing is just too convenient for it to be a fit of jealous rage, especially if the “intimate” relationship had been going on for as long as the police suggest it was. A more likely scenario is that one or both of the Chinese men were under official party orders. They may have been sharing the same sex partner but orders are orders. That would also explain why the assailant killed himself, after killing Liu.
Studying the infection mechanism of COVID-19
Liu’s apparent murderer, Hao Gu, age 46, also a Chinese citizen, and resident of Franklin Park, then reportedly killed himself in his car parked nearby, around 200 yards away on Charlemagne Circle. CBS reports he shot himself in the head. No further details have been released.
Mr. Liu did his research under the the head of the university’s computational and system biology department. Ivet Bahar relates “he was well liked and in the process of studying the infection mechanism of COVID-19.” More importantly, he was “close to making very significant findings.”
The university plans to continue his research study as best they can since he was close to “understanding the cellular mechanisms that underlie SARS-CoV-2 infection.”
