A senior commerce bureau official in east China's Anhui Province committed suicide by jumping off a building, because he was dissatisfied with a stalled pig slaughterhouse project he was in charge of, the local government said Friday.

Zhou Xin, head of the Anqing Municipal Commerce Bureau, fell to his death from a government office building at around midday Wednesday.

Police found a posthumous paper in Zhou's trousers pocket. It said "the stalled pig slaughter house project is down to the wrong site selection and irresponsible supervision."

"The remedy to the blocked sewage is ineffective. I feel overloaded and exhausted and shamed to face the organization and the public," the paper said, "I decide to end my life to shoulder my responsibilities."

Police investigation found the railings on the fifth floor of the building had obvious marks of having been climbed upon.
