It transpires that the 'businessman' had other interests in China..
- There are suggestions that Neil Heywood was poisoned. He is reported to be a former MI6 officer and despite reports that he was working for Hakluyt & Co., there are rumours that he wasn't employed by them and that he wasn't involved in projects in Chongqing. In fact it would appear that he was involved in other projects.
Due to the nature of possibly why Neil Heywood was in China we may never find out what happened to him and why.. However, had it not been for twitter we would have never found out that this murder had occured at all.
