Records from previous investigation into Jang Ja Yeon’s death reportedly missing

Jang Ja Yeon‘s case has been reopened, but investigators reportedly have less to work with than they expected, as phone records for a year prior to her death have gone missing.

Park Jinhyun, who was ordered by the Supreme Public Prosecutors’ Office to investigate the reason of Jang Ja Yeon’s death, said in a telephone interview with Hankook Ilbo on Wednesday that the investigation team did not have any of Jang Ja Yeon’s telephone records. The phone records loss is likely to be a major obstacle to the investigation as they cannot be restored again.

It’s fishy in itself, and it doesn’t seem like they believe the records were randomly lost, as an investigation into their disappearance will be launched.

Because the missing call records have been kept by the prosecution and the court, another investigation on the prosecutors and court officials will be inevitable. If the Supreme Public Prosecutors’ Office finds out who stole Jang Ja Yeon‘s phone records, the incident will likely to cause another stir.

Inevitably then, suspicions have turned on who might benefit most from those records being lost. The son of Bang Jung Oh (CEO of TV Chosun) was brought up, but the current investigator can’t recall any conversation between the two taking place and the former investigator (from 2009) says it was confirmed no call between the two took place. Either way, we’ll never know for sure now.

Even if you don’t believe in conspiracies and all that, one has to admit this is all looking rather suspect … again.
