It is being reported that former “Superstar K” and “Voice Korea” contestant Kim Hyun Ji (31) has died of an apparent suicide.
According to the police, she was found dead in a minivan at a parking lot in Iksan, North Jeolla Province on October 27 at 3:50 p.m. The bodies of two males, Go (33) and Lee (33), were also discovered in the car, along with burnt coal briquettes.
One of them had reportedly sent a text message to their family, saying, “I’m sorry, I’ll be leaving before you.”
The minivan used in the mass suicide was a rental car under Go’s name.
The lost minivan was first reported by a rental car manager from Gwangju, who told the police that his client did not return the vehicle on time and his cellphone is turned off. The police then used GPS to locate and discover the lost vehicle.
Police continues to investigate the case.
