It is going to be interesting to see what the police investigation of this suspect is going to reveal:
The man who murdered and dismembered a 28-year old woman in Suwon – whom police failed to track down for 13 hours after she called 112 to say she was abducted – may be a serial killer, according to an audit team investigating the murder and police’s handling of the case.
The audit team, assigned by Gyeonggi Provincial Police Agency, is also uncovering more details of the police’s botching of the hunt and their attempts to conceal it from the public.
CCTV footage recovered from one of six cameras around Jidong Elementary School in Suwon, which is about 60 meters away from the crime scene, shows the suspect’s initial abduction of the victim.
At 10:32 p.m. on April 1, a CCTV camera at the back gate of the school captured the image of a man standing behind a telephone pole. The man attacks the victim from behind after she passes the pole and then drags her away. In the 13-second video, the man acts quickly and decisively.
The police said the suspect, a 42-year old Chinese of Korean descent surnamed Woo, behaved like a serial killer in the video.
The police say Woo testified that he strangled his victim around 5:00 a.m.
Police finally found Woo in his home at 11:00 a.m. on April 2 while in the act of dismembering the victim’s body for disposal. They also found five or six tools, which they are now testing for remains of any previous victims.
“It looks like the suspect has carefully planned a murder,” professor Pyo Chang-won of Korean National Police University told the JoongAng Ilbo. [Joong Ang Ilbo]
You can read a lot more at the link but the police cover up of this crime was as incompetent as their response to the victims telephone call for help that went unheeded for 13 hours.
