In April a South Korean ferry sank with the loss of 300 lives. Many of those dead were young people; a school party was travelling on board the boomed ferry. Within days of the tragedy Kang Min-Kyu, 52, the high school vice-principal rescued from the capsized South Korean ferry was found hanged.
The crew were arrested but the billionaire boss of the ferry company Chonghaejin Marine Co., Yoo Byung-eun, went missing. Wanted by police as part of their investigation into the tragedy he decided to abscond soon after the disaster.
Tuesday police have confirmed that a body found in June is as suspected that of Yoo Byung-eun, 73. The body was badly decomposed when found but DNA and fingerprints have been used to identify Mr Yoo.
He was head of the family that owned Chonghaejin Marine Co.
There was a reward on his head but for his capture, presumably that was not wanted dead or alive?
In June police raided a church complex belonging to Mr Yoo and made a number of arrests. HIs supporters vowed to protect him.
How he died is not known at this time.
Opinion: It may only be late July but 2014 has already been a horrible year for tragedies and disasters. In early March Malaysian Flight MH370 vanished along with all of those on board; a short time later the South Korean ferry sank; then last week another Malaysian plane, Flight MH17 was downed killing all 298 people on board.
Fighting in the Ukraine and the invasion of Gaza by Israelis adds to the humanitarian cost and loss of life.
Yes as if natural disasters are not enough, and we have also had plenty of environmental disasters lately, humans feel the need to blow each other to pieces in petty in-fighting.
Conspiracy theories abound and certainly the two Malaysian planes have more than a whiff of unfair play about them.
The truth may never really be known about either incident.
As for the South Korean ferry sinking there are still people waiting for justice, which needs to run its course. Sources BBC News
