Following the passing of Goo Hara, the police have now stated that there are no plans to conduct an autopsy.
A source from the Seoul Gangnam Police Station said, “After considering factors such as testimony from the deceased’s family and the situation at the scene, it was decided an autopsy will not be carried out as there are no suspicions of criminal activity.”
The police made a statement regarding the investigation on Goo Hara’s passing at a press conference on November 25.
Commissioner Lee Yong Pyo of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency stated, “There was a hand-written note found on a table in her living room.” Another police source added, “There is nothing we can reveal about the contents of the note.”
The Commissioner continued, “Yesterday (November 24), around 6 p.m., Goo Hara’s housekeeper discovered her. Based on an on-site inspection and testimony from her family, there are no suspicions of a crime.”
Regarding the possibility of carrying out an autopsy, he stated, “We will decide after consulting with the prosecution while considering her family’s opinion and the results of the on-site inspection. Nothing has been decided as of now.”
The Commissioner also said, “Based on the analysis of CCTV footage, we have confirmed that she returned home on November 24 at approximately 12:35 a.m., so it is presumed that she passed away after that time.” It was confirmed that no one else had visited Goo Hara’s home after that time and before her housekeeper discovered her at 6 p.m.
