China police detain man suspected of murdering a billionaire by poisoning the cat meat hot pot they shared

BEIJING (AFP) - Police in southern China say they have detained a man suspected of murdering a billionaire tycoon over a financial dispute by poisoning the cat meat hot pot they shared. Long Liyuan, who made his fortune running a forestry company in wealthy Guangdong province, died last month after sharing a dinner of cat meat hot pot - a local delicacy - with two associates at a restaurant. On Monday, authorities in Yangjiang city, where the incident occurred, said police had detained one of the two associates, Huang Guang, a local forestry official, on suspicion of poisoning the meal after a business deal went sour. 'Huang, who was helping Long take a lease on a forest, had himself used funds provided by Long. This led to an economic dispute and gave Huang the idea to kill Long with poison,' said a statement on the city's official microblog.
