(NaturalNews) The man responsible for alerting the world to the presence of melamine in milk and infant formula made in China several years ago has died after being viciously and mercilessly beaten and stabbed to death. The Times of India and others report that 44-year-old Jiang Weisuo, the acclaimed whistleblower from China's Shaanxi province, was attacked on November 2 while walking home from a meeting he had attended at the dairy company Xi'an, where he held a position as general manager.

As you may recall, Weisuo's courage in coming forward with information about the deliberate tainting of Chinese milk products helped further erode what little unfounded trust the world still had in the quality and safety of Chinese food products. It also led to the two men who were eventually declared to be responsible for the scandal, which killed at least six babies and sickened hundreds of thousands of others, being put to death by state authorities. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk)

Now, several years later and seemingly out of nowhere, Weisuo suddenly gets taken for a ride by unknown perpetrators, and local authorities mysteriously cover up the story for three whole weeks before finally going public with it. Though it took 12 days for Weisuo to eventually die from his injuries, local authorities did not provide an official media release for another 11 days after that, upon which they suddenly claimed they had apprehended a suspect. But not everyone is buying the story, nor the unusual series of events that accompanied it.

"The South China Morning Post said Jiang's prominence as a food safety critic has caused some media outlets to question whether his death was related to his efforts to clean up the (dairy) industry," wrote the New Zealand-based news source Stuff.co.nz about the matter. "Reports have speculated [Weisuo] was attacked after rejecting a blackmailing threat or targeted by a hit-man."

Some of the earliest news reports to emerge following the announcement of Weisuo's death claimed he was stabbed by his wife during a heated argument, and that this was confirmed by an "unidentified local police source." But other sources later suggested this was false information, perhaps deliberately planted by the Chinese government to cover up a hit-job.

Weisuo's bravery was also partially responsible for alerting the American public to the presence of melamine in many popular U.S.-based milk products and infant formula. As we covered here at Natural News back in 2008, as much as 90 percent of the infant formula sold in the U.S. by companies such as Nestle, Mead Johnson, and Enfamil were found at that time to be contaminated with potentially deadly levels of melamine.
