Parents were arrested for hiding their daughter’s body for 3 years and collecting child support payments
Excluding charges of ‘abuse and death’ in the prosecution process from seeking a warrant
Additional charges of ‘negligence’, such as not being vaccinated and leaving alone
Mother denies murder charge, saying “daughter died suddenly”
When their 15-month-old daughter died, the biological parents who hid the body for three years and received child support payments were arrested.
The charge of child abuse and death for the abuse and killing of a child was not applied.
Police said it was difficult to establish a causal relationship between the abuse and death as they were unable to determine the cause of death.

A man and a woman wearing hats are led by a police officer into the court one after the other to be questioned before being detained.
Early last year, when their 15-month-old daughter died, they hid the body in a suitcase and a container of kimchi and received millions of money earned in childcare allowances, including the birth parents, A 34-year-old and 29- year-old B’s old ex-husband.

The charge that A’s mother had abused her child to death was initially included when the police applied for an arrest warrant, but was excluded from the prosecution’s application process.
Instead, when he was 15 months old, he should have been vaccinated a total of 18 times, but he only had 3 shots, and only charges of neglect, such as being left alone at home, were added .
Although the charge of neglecting the child and hiding the body came out, it means that the part that led to the death has not been properly proven.
A police officer said that autopsy results from the National Institute for Scientific Investigation showed that the cause of death could not be determined as the body was severely decomposed.
It was difficult to prove a direct causal relationship, so it was explained that the charge of manslaughter was not applied in conjunction with the prosecution.
In particular, he added that it is assumed that the hole found in the skull occurred after death.
A’s mother had previously denied the charge of murder, saying her daughter died suddenly during a police investigation, and she hid the body because she feared it would be her fault.
Ultimately, it is interpreted that the police have yet to find concrete evidence to disprove this claim, and the focus of the police’s supplementary investigation is expected to focus on uncovering the murder charges in the future.
