Ng was murdered in his apartment in Guatemala; his body was in his bathtub.
According to an official statement of then US Senator Alan Cranston, Ng “may have been killed because he was investigating the scandal-ridden Bank of Credit and Commerce International.” Specifically, “Ng’s murder was related to his probe into arms trafficking allegedly carried out by BCCI.” In a statement released at a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee hearing he said "Although officials in Guatemala have sought to characterize Ng's assassination as the work of common criminals, the murder seems to be the work of professional hitmen".
Ng’s murder resembles the death of Danny Casolaro, another journalist who was investgating the BCCI. Both were found dead in their bathtub, both had documents that were never found.
