Money found in a shoe promises to keep the spotlight on a mysterious death in Taiwan. Taiwanese security agents invariably leave a bill or two in the shoe of people they have killed, it is said, in the superstitious hope of propitiating their ghosts. Such money was found on the body of Chem Wen-Cheng, a TAiwanese Professor at Carnegie-Mellon University who died under mysterious circumstances July 3 during a vacation visit to his homeland.

Taiwanese authorities deny any foul play when Professor Chen fell to his death. But a team of American doctors permitted to perform an autopsy has concluded the professor was tortured and murdered.

The Chen case has become a cause celebre on Taiwan and among the Taiwanese community in the US. It has also caused concern in Congress over the issue of spying on foreign nationals while they are in the US.m
