The Police think the two knew each other. Moreover, the murder had no connection to Liu’s Chinese ethnicity, according to Brian Kohlhepp, Detective Sgt.
The Pittsburgh University expressed feelings of grief through a message saying they were “deeply saddened by the tragic death of Bing Liu, a prolific researcher and admired colleague at Pitt. The University extends our deepest sympathies to Liu’s family, friends, and colleagues during this difficult time.”.
“Bing 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.”
As stated by Liu’s colleagues from the university’s School of Medicine, he was an outstanding researcher and mentor too.
This murder-suicide plot that happened in Pittsburgh comes shortly after a third russian doctor that was talking about bad working conditions amid the pandemic mysteriously fell out of a window in a hospital.
