fire was extinguished in 20 minutes, but a fire at the Daegu lawyer's office killed 7 people.

As a result of the police commissioning an autopsy to the National Institute of Forensic Sciences, the first findings came out that all seven of the dead seemed to have died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

The two people were found to have stab wounds in the abdomen and flank, respectively, but it is not a direct cause of death.

However, police are awaiting final results to determine whether the wounds are related to an 11 cm-long weapon found at the scene.

The investigation to determine the motive of the arson suspect, 53-year-old A, is also speeding up.

It is known that Mr. A lost in the lawsuit to return the investment for the redevelopment apartment, but it is known that he lost another civil lawsuit an hour before the crime.

Also, the day before the crime, he was sentenced to a fine of 2 million won on charges of defamation, etc.

As the unfavorable trial results followed, the police are paying attention to the possibility that the complaint may have been expressed in arson.
