STAFF WRITER WITH DPA

Premier Su Tseng-chang's (蘇貞昌) brother-in-law, Chan Ming-chi (詹明智), died yesterday after falling from his eighth-floor apartment in Taipei City. Police are investigating his death, but they have initially ruled out murder or an accident and are treating the death as a suicide. Chan did not leave behind any letter or other message, police said. Police are asking Chan's family about his health, finances and other personal details. Chan, who was 58, was Su's wife's elder brother and a businessperson. Su and his wife went to the scene of the incident yesterday afternoon after being notified of Chan's death, but Su did not make any remarks. Chan, who used to be the head of the Rotary Club of Taipei, was described by friends as a kind and friendly person.
