Death of a Scientist in Singapore

Raymond Bonner and Christine Spolar have a hugely damning FT story about the death of Shane Todd, an American scientist, in Singapore where he worked at the Institute of Microelectronics.

On June 24 last year, the body of a young US electronics engineer, Shane Todd, was found hanging in his Singapore apartment. Police said it was suicide, but the Todd family believe he was murdered. Shane had feared that a project he was working on was compromising US national security. His parents want to know if that project sent him to his grave.

Very, very grim stuff.
