Scandalous Bejing Ferrari Crash a Political Murder, Reports Hong Kong Magazine
Former domestic security czar Zhou Yongkang said to conspire in ordering crash

The spectacular and fatal crash of a Ferrari in Beijing in March 2012 quickly came to symbolize the decadent lifestyle of the children of the Chinese Communist Party’s elite. Recently, Chinese netizens and others have raised grave doubts about the widely publicized account of hijinks turned deadly, and a Hong Kong magazine has quoted high-level sources in Beijing as saying the crash was in fact political murder.

Early in the morning of March 18, 2012 a black two-seater Ferarri carrying Ling Gu, the son of Central Committee member Ling Jinghua, bounced off the south wall of the Baofusi Bridge and smashed into the guardrail on the north side. Ling Gu was found dead, ejected from the car. Two female students riding in the car were critically injured.

First Reports

On the day of the accident, the Beijing Evening News published a report on the crash with photos showing the burning engine block separated from the main body of the car.

The next day, Beijing News also published photos and an article detailing an eyewitness’ account of how the accident occurred.

Neither story revealed the identity of the driver.

Two days after the crash, the English-language edition of the Global Times, a Chinese newspaper supervised by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) mouthpiece People’s Daily, published an article alleging a “crash cover-up.”

In that article, the writer reported that microblog postings and news reports about the crash had been deleted from many popular websites, and online searches for the word “Ferrari” had been blocked.

“It just proves that this young man must have a special background; maybe he’s a high-ranking official’s son,” it quoted a local resident as saying.

It was this Global Times story that first drew suspicion among the public about the identity of the deceased, according to Reuters.

With the media coverage having heightened speculation about what the real story of the car crash might be, in June 2012 the U.S.-based Chinese-language news site Boxun first reported that Ling Gu was the driver. The Hong Kong-based Mingjing News published a similar article soon after.

Boxun reported that Ling was found naked and drunk and claimed he was playing sex games with the two female passengers before the wreck occurred. The two women, said to be from Beijing’s Minzu University, were also reported to be naked. One of the women was said now to be paralyzed.
