A Chinese gaming and movie production tycoon has been found dead at the age of 39, the victim of an alleged murder plot.
Yoozoo Group CEO Lin Qi, famous for developing the popular title Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming, took ill on December 16, and was admitted to a Shanghai ICU. Medical staff resuscitated him on December 24, but Lin died soon after.
Shanghai Police are now investigating a man named Xu Yao, a colleague of Lin’s, for his death by alleged poisoning.
In addition to his gaming empire, Lin was also recently attached to a Netflix English-language production of Chinese sci-fi show The Three Body Problem.
