Description

The San Jose Mercury News reports that Tai-Kin Wong had much to look forward to in 1993. He had snared more than $200,000 in seed money for his new biotech company and was expecting another $5 million soon. Wong never made it to his New Years Eve party. He fell violently and mysteriously ill. A coroner's investigation found "possible suspicious circumstances" surrounding the death. Then a cryptic, eight-word had written will was found by officials in an unmarked envelope in Wong's office. Dated the day of his death, it purportedly bequeathed his entire estate to his ex-girlfriend and current business partner.
