Three mothers and daughters were found dead in an apartment in Seoul. At the time of discovery, a man in his twenties, who was a suspect, attempted self-harm on the site at the time of discovery, and is currently being treated at a hospital.
Reporter Ha Jeong-yeon reports.
An apartment in Nowon-gu, Seoul. Police cars and ambulances are lined up, and the police are busy trying to find out the scene.
At about 9 o'clock on the 25th, last night, three mothers and daughters were found dead in their homes after being stabbed by a weapon.
A police officer who was dispatched after receiving a report of being unable to contact a friend for several days found three mothers and daughters and a male suspect together.
[Fire Officer: We just went out after receiving an open door report. It seems to have been opened because the police are reporting it.] The
suspect was known to be in his 20s, and he attempted self-harm at the time of discovery, and is currently being treated at a nearby hospital.
The first reporter, the daughter's acquaintance, was reported to have reported it because it was strange when a friend who had decided to come to the meeting three days ago did not contact him.
[Neighborhood residents: Three police cars came in, and there was no fire, but they came in like this, but they kept coming even though I went back and forth with my daughter. As
soon as the suspect's condition improves, the police are planning to investigate the relationship with the victim and why the crime was committed.
