Briton Uneasy Before China Murder

It’s an international murder mystery that keeps getting more intriguing. Friends of Neil Heywood, the British businessman who was found dead in a Chongqing hotel room, say he felt he was “in trouble.” Heywood had been summoned to meet with the representatives of Bo Xilai, the local Communist Party chief who has since been stripped of his position in the prestigious Politburo. He told his confidants that he left documents that detailed Bo’s family’s overseas investments with his lawyer in Britain after he had a falling out with Bo’s wife, Gu Kailai. Chinese authorities have classified his death as an intentional homicide and have arrested Gu as a suspect.
