Update on this breaking story here and here
I’m not sure how important this will turn out to be. I always thought it was fairly obvious he had been bumped off, but even now it is hard to know who did it. Still, it is nice to see this apparently cleared up. Now if we can just find out exactly what happened to Lin Biao all of history’s mysteries will be cleared up.
The most interesting thing, I thought, was that they got comment from Imperial descendants, who have varying opinions on the matter.
You’re right, though: it’s never been much of a mystery, and any new light that could be shed on the Lin Biao case would be much, much more interesting!
