When the 15-month-old girl died, the body was hidden for 3 years… ‘gulp’ is a child’s allowance

◀ Anchor ▶

After the death of their 15-month-old daughter, the police caught the real parents who had hidden the body for three years and even collected child support.

It became a report from the local government, who found it strange that the check record of the deceased child had not been uploaded and that he was not registered at the day care centre.

Reporter Kim Min-hyung covered the story.

In January 2020, a 15-month-old girl died in a house in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi-do.

The child was said to have died after being left unattended for a long time, but the child’s mother did not report this fact and left the body in the house.

Then, the body was put in a bag and moved temporarily to her parents’ house, and then moved to the house in Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, where her ex-husband lived.

The husband was in prison at the time of his daughter’s death, and after being released, he reportedly hid the child’s body in a kimchi container and hid it on the roof of the house.

This fact has been hidden for almost three years.

However, the crime was uncovered after a report by the local government.

The child’s address was in Pocheon-si, Gyeonggi-do, a relative’s house, but although he was about 4 years old, the baby’s check record was not uploaded at all and he was not registered at the day care center, so Pocheon-si was reported that he is missing in 112.

The police, who launched an investigation, found the child’s parents, and the mother, who had denied the crime, eventually confessed.

The biological parents, who had covered up the crime for several years, are said to have taken millions worth of child allowance paid to the deceased child.

“(Child benefit) We did not calculate the exact amount. We have secured all the data. (The suspects) all recognize it.”

While the police are asking the National Institute for Scientific Investigation to examine the body, they are investigating the details of the crime against the birth parents.
