A woman in her 60s was found dead in a motel.

Police arrested the woman's 30-year-old nephew on charges of assault and manslaughter, but it was revealed that other family members were also trying to hide the crime.

This is an exclusive report by KBC reporter Lee Gye-hyuk. 


The time when a report that a 60-year-old woman died at a motel in Yeosu was received at around 10:00 pm on the 17th. 

The victim was found dead in this room on the first floor of the motel. 

When the police arrived at the scene, they found that the woman had severe bruises all over her body. 

Allegations have been raised that the motel owner, the wife of the deceased woman's older sister, contacted her funeral home and tried to move her body quickly, rather than ascertaining the cause of her death. 

The funeral home employee who arrived at the motel had a strange feeling and said that he had to report it to the police first, and it was only then that the report was made. 

In addition, there were no CCTV footage left before the police report time. 

[Police official: (CCTV video) only after reporting, and the rest (nothing.) Because forensics entrusted to you.

You should also check when the bruises occurred.] 

The deceased woman, who was a grade 1 intellectual disability, is said to have assisted with her work while living in a motel with her older sister and her husband and their 35-year-old daughter. 

[Neighbors: Doing chores, cleaning, very despised, and naughty.

She seemed to be called a relative...


The police arrested a nephew who recently started living in a motel with a statement that he had a violent quarrel with his deceased aunt, and arrested him for assault and murder. 

In addition, the National Forensic Research Institute is requesting an autopsy of the body, while investigating the motive for the assault and whether the crime was concealed.
