Jiang Hongliang, a top-ranking official of Wuxi, China, was found dead on March 31, 2015 at the base of the 350-foot-high Wenfeng pagoda in Longbeishan Mountain National Park in Yixing, Jiangsu Province, China. Based on state media reports, scores of government officials in China have killed themselves since late 2012, many of them in response to Chinese President Xi Jinping's crackdown on corruption since that time. Jiang was apparently caught up in a power struggle involving his allies and new appointees of current Chinese President Xi Jinping.
