A man in his 60s was found dead in the underground parking lot of an apartment building in Seoul early today.
Police believe the son, in his 30s, killed his father and hid the body.
Reporter Jung Hyun-woo has this report.
A police cordon has been put up on the stairs of the apartment’s underground parking lot.
Blood stains are scattered on the floor of the parking lot.
At around 0:50 a.m. today, a man in his late 60s, Mr. A, was found dead in a mechanical room on the second floor of the basement.
[Firefighter: The police requested our assistance, so we responded and handed him over to the police officers because he died on the scene].
The police, responding to a call from a resident, backtracked the blood trail and arrived at Mr. A’s apartment.
They immediately forced open the apartment door and arrested a man in his 30s, who turned out to be Mr. A’s son.
After analyzing the apartment’s CCTV토토사이트, police believe that the son murdered his father at home, carried the body into the elevator, and hid it in the basement mechanical room.

The son was reportedly not intoxicated at the time of his arrest.
Police plan to apply for an arrest warrant after determining the exact circumstances of the incident, including the motive for the crime, through interviews.
White smoke billows from the building behind what appears to be lab equipment.
At around 9 p.m. last night (Aug. 28), a fire broke out in a laboratory on the first floor of the Aerospace Engineering Building at Chosun University in Gwangju.
The three people in the building were quickly put out and no one was injured, but firefighters believe the blaze started from a sample that was being stored.
