Suspicions of Foul Play
The buzz around Chinese netizens is that they are suspicious of foul play although nothing has been confirmed. Some were trying to find links between Zhang’s death and recent China-US relations. There is a possible US government investigation under Section 301 of US trade law into Zhang’s Danhua Capital which started these rumors.
Family representatives, however, have denied these claims saying, “There is no truth to this uninformed speculation”.
