Once a rising political star known for busting gangs and reviving Maoist ideals, China's Bo Xilai has suffered a dramatic fall from grace that now sees him linked to a suspected murder. The 62-year-old was once a leading contender to enter the top rungs of power, but in a stunning reversal of fortune he was sacked as head of Chongqing city and late Tuesday suspended from the Communist Party's powerful Politburo.
