Loss Of Talented Chinese-American Professor
Bing Liu, a 37-year old research professor at Pittsburg University was found dead in his home on May 2. He had been shot in the head and the neck. Police said one hour later after Liu’s body was discovered, a second person, Hao Gu, 46, was found dead inside a car less than one mile away. Police believe Gu killed Liu before returning to his car where he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Pittsburg University issued a statement saying that Liu Bing was on the verge of making a very significant finding toward understanding the cellular mechanism that underlie the Sars Cov 2 infection and the cellular basis of following complications.
We are so sad to learn about this very sad news and our condolences go out to his family.
In the last half century, many Chinese students came to the United States to pursue a better life and higher education. After they got their Master’s or PhD degrees, most of them stayed here and became U.S. citizens and made great contributions to our nation. As the late President Ronald Reagan said, “We are a nation of immigrants.”
While the coronavirus is still attacking our nation, we have lost one of the most outstanding medical scientist. We still don’t know what is the motive of this killing, but we all feel so sad about this tragedy. This murder case also tells us that hate can’t be the solution.
