Who Is Killing The Great Microbiologists of Europe?

Another microbiologist has been killed under peculiar circumstances. 72-year-old Professor Jeong Im, a semiretired protein chemist at the University of Missouri-Columbia was found stabbed and stuffed into the trunk of his burning car in a university parking garage. It was the first murder at the school since 1988. Some of you may remember the sequence of fourteen microbiologists and bioweapons experts who were murdered or died under otherwise "peculiar" circumstances in a one year period in 2001-2002. Right at the height of the Anthrax scare. Is there a deeper conspiracy here, or is it just a random clustering? To think, I initially wanted to be a microbiologist.
