At 9:40 pm on Jan. 7, the body of a man surnamed Kim, 53, was found hanging in an apartment in the West district of Daejeon. Kim’s mother, surnamed Lee, 96, was also found dead. She had been strangled. Kim left a suicide note behind. “If I’m gone, there will be no one to take care of my mother, who is suffering from dementia,” the note said.
