According to reports, actor Jo Min Ki, who was recently hit with a wave of sexual harassment allegations, was found dead on March 9 at approximately 4 p.m. KST. Reports state that the actor was found in a storage room next to the basement parking garage of his apartment. He was discovered by his wife, who then called the police. Though emergency responders attempted to revive the actor as he was rushed to the emergency room, he was ultimately pronounced dead. Police haven’t found any evidence of foul play, and are thus suspecting that the death was a suicide, although this is still being investigated.
Due to this, police investigations will come to an end.
The Chungbuk police station spoke to news and confirmed the news of the actor’s death. Police also stated that investigation into the sexual harassment allegations made against Jo Min Ki may come to a close: “Usually, in the event that the accused dies, the investigation ends with the case being forwarded to prosecution marked ‘no indictment.’”
Couldn’t even face the music.
