Police Tentatively Conclude Actress's Death as Impulsive Suicide
Police investigating the death of actress Choi Jin-sil have tentatively concluded Choi’s death a result of an impulsive suicide.
Police investigating the case unveiled the conclusion in a news briefing Friday. Police based its assessment on autopsy results and testimony from Choi’s friends and family.
According to the police, shortly before her death, Choi had expressed her agony through telephone calls and text messages with her manager, coordinator and a magazine reporter. In a message to her coordinator, Choi said she hoped her children would be well taken care even if she was not there.
Police also dismissed allegations that Choi’s death might be related to the death of Ahn Jae-hwan, a fellow actor who committed suicide in early September. According to police, the two cases have no relation and, therefore, an additional investigation will not be carried out.
