10 Murder Mysteries That Will Never Be Forgotten

Wang Lijun, Bo Xilai and Gu Kailai

When respected police chief Wang Lijun investigated the death of Neil Heywood, a British expatriate living in Beijing, the cause of death was initially determined to be alcohol poisoning. It was not until years later that Wang admitted to a massive cover-up involving his boss Bo Xilai and his boss’s wife Gu Kailai. Gu allegedly poisoned Neil and Bo helped to cover up the murder in order to remain in power politically.

Albert and Alfred Stratton

The two brothers had been seen in the area, but it was Alfred’s thumbprint on the cashbox of the store that did them in. This case led to expansion of fingerprinting investigation within police department’s across the world.
