Within an hour of Liu's body being discovered, there was a second person found dead less than a mile away. Hao Gu, 46, was found dead inside of a car, according to the agency.
More on the story from NBC News:
Ross Township police Detective Sgt. Brian Kohlhepp told NBC News that the men knew each other. Investigators believe Gu killed Liu before returning to his car, where he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Police believe the deaths occurred on Saturday after a "lengthy dispute regarding an intimate partner," according to the Ross Police Department Wednesday.
"We have found zero evidence that this tragic event has anything to do with employment at the University of Pittsburgh, any work being conducted at the University of Pittsburgh and the current health crisis affecting the United States and the world," police said.
Looks like it's just a case of very interesting timing. A coincidence, if you will.
The conspiracy theorists are probably going nuts with this one, though.

Feminist Lawyer Tweets Ultimate Insult to Tara Reade and Victims Everywhere
I'll be honest, when I first saw this tweet from feminist lawyer Lisa Bloom, I seriously didn't believe it. I thought it was a fake tweet that someone had made, because I first saw it as a screenshot on Facebook. Then I went to go look it up and it was true.
But what Bloom said just demonstrates the absurdity of the Democratic Party, and how much they'll overlook the worst crimes to support their guy.
