You almost couldn’t make this story up. Then again, 2020 has given us the accidental helicopter crash death of Kobe Bryant, a report that Kim Jong-Un was a vegetable, and taken away all live sports because of a virus that virtually shut down the entire world – THANKS, CHINA!

So…

Here you go.

From NY Post:

A University of Pittsburgh researcher “on the verge” of a breakthrough in understanding the coronavirus was found shot dead in his home, according to a report.

Bing Liu, 37, was allegedly killed inside his Pittsburgh-area townhouse Saturday by a man who then went outside to his car and shot himself, WTAE, a local ABC affiliate, reported.

More from WTAE:

“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,” the department said in a written statement. “We will make an effort to complete what he started in an effort to pay homage to his scientific excellence.”

[…]

Police said Liu and the man who shot him knew each other. Authorities have not discussed a possible motive for the shooting, which remained under investigation Monday.
