Police Releases Official Statement Regarding Passing Of SHINee’s Jonghyun

The police have reached a conclusion after looking into the tragic passing of SHINee’s Jonghyun.

On December 19, a source from the Gangnam police stated, “The results of our investigation decisively conclude that he died by suicide, and therefore we will not be performing an autopsy. His family wished for an autopsy to not be conducted.” The police announced they will be officially closing their examination into the matter after talking with the family face-to-face one more time.

In accordance with his family’s wishes, Jonghyun’s funeral will be held as quietly as possible, and SM Entertainment has arranged a separate time and location for fans to pay their respects today, beginning 12 p.m. KST, at Asan Medical Center in Seoul.
