N. Korean defector and her young son found dead in Seoul apartment
The government plans to find better ways to
help North Korean defectors settle in the South. The statement comes from a unification ministry
official, after a 42-year-old defector and her 6-year-old son were found dead in their
apartment in Seoul last month. Reportedly, the person in charge of helping
them was unable to contact them for sometime, after they moved into their apartment last
October. Police said there was no evidence of suicide
or homicide and that an investigation is underway to find the exact cause of their deaths.
