Shedding Light on Scandal

China is renewing its commitment to "thoroughly investigate" the death of a British businessman.

The Neil Heywood case has unfolded like something out of a movie... with allegations of illegal money transfers, betrayal and foul play. But it is very real and has cost a powerful Chinese politician his career.

Bo Xilai was once a rising star of the Communist Party. Now his wife. Gu Kailai, is being held as a suspect in Heywood's death. Bo himself is under investigation for "serious discipline violations."

Our Beijing Bureau Chief sheds light on the deepening scandal.
