At a news conference in Seoul, a police spokesperson reported that the body was identified by means of genetic and fingerprint probes. DNA samples taken from the brother of billionaire Yoo Byung-eun were used for this purpose. The tycoon’s body was discovered on a field in the southern part of the country on June 12. Police doesn’t report about the causes of his death, but there are no signs of murder.
Through these structures, Yoo Byung-eun actually owned the company, to which the sunken ferry belonged. The investigation believes that illegal changes in the ferry’s framework and improper operation became the causes of the tragedy. According to the police, Yoo Byung-eun and his confidants bear the responsibility for the tragedy.
The 15 crew members of Sewol ferry were also arrested, as the tycoon’s wife and other five members of his family, including his elder brother. Yoo Byung-eun’s elder son remains on wanted list. A reward of $100 thousand has been announced for the information on his whereabouts.
