The death of Chinese-American soldier Danny Chen and the allegations of bullying and hazing surrounding it have shocked New York’s Asian-American community. Now CCTV correspsondent Fintan Monaghan takes a look at Changyu Lee, a world-renowned Chinese-American forensic expert, who has been taking part in the investigation into the incident.

Doctor Changyu Lee was invited by the Organization of Chinese Americans to take part in the investigation, but it‘s the US military that will be responsible for the autopsy and the gathering of detailed information.

Changyu Lee said, "Any case we investigate should be based on sufficient evidence. But up to now we haven’t received any detailed data. So all we can do for now is to wait for US military to release the autopsy report, crime scene report and crime scene photographs."

Many suspect that whether the report will cover up any authentic information. And they are also worried whether the US military would be partial to the US army side. But Dr. Lee believes that the report is going to be trustworthy.

Changyu Lee said, "They are sure to release an integrated report. If any information is proved to be false, we will find it out. If necessary, I will go to the crime scene to search the evidence."

Dr. Lee said that the investigation will be fair and impartial and encouraged the Chinese-American community to have confidence. He also expressed his hope that this kind of incident won’t happen again.
