On the day of Chuseok, a body believed to be a man in his 20s and 30s was found in Ganghwa Island, Incheon, and it was claimed that the body was a 25-year-old male aunt who went missing at Gayang Station last month.

In response, the Incheon Maritime Police Station announced on the 26th that it had requested DNA analysis from the National Institute for Scientific Investigation to confirm the identity of the body found in the tidal flats of Ganghwa Island on the 10th.

On SBS ‘I Want to Know’, which aired on the 24th, Lee’s maternal cousin A said, “The body presumed to be a younger brother was found. But the body was not found intact.”

According to Mr. A, Lee’s family recently heard the news that an unidentified body, believed to be a man in his 20s and 30s, was found in Ganghwa Island. The Incheon Maritime Police Station is said to have found two bodies of unknown identity in the tidal flat near Gwangseongbo in Buleun-myeon, Ganghwa-gun, Incheon on the 10th. Among them, the body found by the fisherman was only the lower part of the body, wearing trousers and sneakers.

The 25-year-old aunt disappeared on the 7th of last month at 1:30 a.m. after breaking up with acquaintances near the airport market station in Seoul. The last time he was caught was around 2:15 a.m. on that day, and he was caught on CCTV near Gayang Station as he walked from Exit 4 of Gayang Station to the Gayang Bridge.

In response, the police said, “Comparing shoes, etc., they look similar (Mr. Lee),” but “I’m not sure, so I think I’ll have to do a DNA test. It will take at least two weeks.”

Person A said, “You can tell whether it was a murder or suicide by looking at the body, but the body itself is too much decomposed.” He added, “If the upper body is not found within this year, the current of Ganghwa Island may rise toward North Korea and the body may be washed away there.”

Person A claimed in an interview that the police did not properly conduct the initial investigation. Mr. A said, “No matter how late, the body will appear in 3 or 4 days. The body must have risen to the surface at least once,” he said.

He continued, “Lee didn’t do stocks or gamble, so why do you see him as a simple runaway? “She did not investigate the case because she was a man in his 20s.”

According to the current law, when a report is received that an adult over the age of 18 has disappeared, the police comprehensively judge the circumstances, including the possibility of being involved in a crime, and classify it as ‘disappearing’ and ‘runaway’. In the case of ‘disappearance’, investigations and searches can be actively conducted, such as location tracking and card usage history inquiry, but if classified as runaway, it cannot be attempted unless a warrant is issued.

Earlier, Mr. Lee disappeared on the 7th of last month at 1:30 a.m. after breaking up with his acquaintances near the Airport Market Station in Seoul. The last time he was caught was around 2:15 a.m. on that day, and he was caught on CCTV near Gayang Station as he walked from Exit 4 of Gayang Station to the Gayang Bridge. Lee’s cell phone was turned off the last time he spoke to his girlfriend around 2:30 in the morning.

Lee’s family and acquaintances made a flyer last month and shared it on social media and online communities. Lee is 172 centimeters tall and weighs 60 kilograms. On the day of his disappearance, he was wearing a black short-sleeved T-shirt, beige pants and white sneakers. It is known that she has lettering tattoos on her right wrist and left clavicle.
