Meanwhile, the National Institute for Scientific Research said that as a result of the autopsy on the child who died, ″multiple damage has been confirmed″ and plans to determine the exact cause of death through a detailed examination.
The victim’s parents were arrested on suspicion of abusing and killing the victim in an apartment in Nonhyeon-dong, Namdong-gu, Incheon, around 2 pm yesterday.
At the time, bruises were found in all parts of the victim’s body.
According to the Incheon Metropolitan Office of Education, the victim had not been to school since November 24 last year and was listed as a ‘long-term absence’ by the education authorities.
Even after school started last month, the homeroom teacher contacted the child because the child was not going to school, but the parents responded that they were “preparing to study in the Philippines ” and he said that the parents would teach at home and “homeschool”.
