Alarms Sound Over Strange Shooting Death of Researcher Who Was on Verge of COVID Cure

Americans are questioning the information they’ve been getting from politicians, doctors, and the media regarding the Chinese-released coronavirus.

From where the virus originated, to the actual numbers of those infected, to how best to control the virus, misinformation and mystery are leaving many Americans confused.

And now alarm bells are going off over the strange death of a researcher whom many say was on the verge of finding a cure for the coronavirus.

As Americans begin the process of “reopening,” many questions about the Chinese-released coronavirus are bubbling up to the surface of an increasingly outraged public.

Americans want to know where this virus came from, who is responsible for mishandling it, and just what measures actually work to stop the spread.

They also want to know if there is a cure, when it might be available, whether it will allow us to get back to our normal lives, or if it’s all just a pipe dream.

But now, after the strange shooting death of a researcher who was working on these answers, we may never know the full truth.

University of Pittsburgh researcher Bing Liu was supposedly on the verge of a breakthrough on a cure for the coronavirus when he was found shot to death in his home last weekend.

Bing Liu, 37, was allegedly murdered inside his townhouse by a man who later shot himself in his car, according to the local ABC affiliate, WTAE. Law enforcement officials told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Liu had been shot multiple times and suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his head, neck, torso, and extremities.

The alleged murder-suicide shooter was identified as 46-year-old Hao Gu.

Oddly, neighbors who were interviewed by the newspaper said they didn’t hear any gunshots the day Liu was killed, even though it happened in a townhouse community.

Liu’s wife was not home at the time of the shooting and there was no sign of forced entry.

Detective Brian Kohlhepp, the lead investigator, was quick to tell the media that police “don’t believe the relationship between the two men had anything to do with Liu’s research on the coronavirus.”

“We haven’t had anything at this point that has come to the investigation that has anything to do with Mr. Liu’s employment or his research,” Kohlhepp continued.

A motive for the shooting is still unknown.

A statement released from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine described Liu as “a prolific researcher and generous mentor.”

And Ivet Bahar, the supervisor and head of the research department, told the Post-Gazette, “We will make an effort to complete what he started in an effort to pay homage to his scientific excellence.”

“Bing [Liu] was on the verge of making very significant findings toward understanding the cellular mechanisms that underlie SARS-CoV-2 infection and the cellular basis of the following complications.”
