Two days ago we introduced you to "the rich kids of Vancouver" for whom the most important decision in any given day is whether to spend half a million dollars on a new Lamborghini or on an investment such as "two expensive watches or some diamonds."

We now introduce you to someone who may be one of these rich kids' dad. Or rather was, because Gang Yuan, a 42-year-old mining tycoon is no longer alive. His corpse was found chopped into 100 pieces in his Vancouver home.
Gang Yuan's dismembered body was found at a West Vancouver home.
According to a civil lawsuit, Yuan came to Canada in 2007 with permanent resident status and made his money by investing in real estate and Saskatchewan farmland, in the process becoming the owner of a at least one abandoned multimillion-dollar Vancouver home... and much more.

As The Province reports, Yuan has been linked to a government corruption scandal in southwestern China. He is also a shining example of how most of the billions in hot money flooding Vancouver real estate funds are sourced: illegally. This story helps to shed some light on the origina of at least a modest amount of that money.
The scandal led to a 19-year jail term for Yunnan province official Lin Yunye. Yunye was jailed last November for selling $234 million in state mining assets to a number of businessmen from whom he accepted tens of millions in bribes - including gold bars, luxury watches and rhinoceros horns.

100 pieces? did they try resuscitation?
UBC = University of a Billion Chinese
it’s just so crazy it might work!!
Must have been a suicide.
Must have been a suicide.
I was thinking natural causes but you may be right.
There is at least one Mini-Series waiting to be written cast and filmed, then sold to HBO. China would most likely try to keep such an event from occurring, as it would invite closer scrutiny of their finances.
All asian cast, of course. You couldn’t get away today,casting a tall lean caucasian like Rex Harrison as the King Of Siam without a lot of negative feedback. Warren Oland, a Swede, was chosen to play Charlie Chan back in 1931.
You all have me in stitches :-)
I bet those kids are insufferable to interact with.
Musta been suicide
Sell me the rights to your idea for a dollar, and I’ll give 3% of the net profits to FR.
We bought our house in Seattle years ago. The real estate agent would talk about the Chinese that would come down from Canada. One Chinese gal came down and in a weekend and bought a large house for she and her husband and three other nice homes for her kids.
No mortgages - just pay it up front.
So a few weeks later, closing day comes on two of the homes. The agents meet her at her hotel to pick her up for the closing. She grabs a big suitcase.
“What’s the suitcase for?”
“To pay with!”
“Um, what do you mean?”
“$900,000 cash - right?” (This was 20 years ago!)
They stopped by the bank on the way to the closing to get a cashiers check!
Sidney grabbed a hatchet, buried it, in Benny’s head.
The people gasped as he bled:
The end of a Ted?
Well, they dragged him from the wreckage of the Palais in bits.
They tried to stick together all the bits that would fit.
But some of him was missing
And “part of him” arrived too late,
So now he works for Jesus
As the bouncer at St. Peter’s Gate.
(RIP Keith Emerson)
“Musta been suicide”
More like sushi-cide. They were cuttin’ that fella up for bait!
never heard that one!

A light-hearted fairly simple song to break up the heavier, complex stuff on the album. Sort of a rag-time piano and some good bass rhythm.
Tis but a flesh wound!
