According to multiple sources, person named Mr. Park’s body, who was a vice president of Vidente Co, a company closely related to the major South Korean exchange Bithumb and its largest shareholder, was found in front of his house.

Park did this in the middle of an investigation regarding his role in embezzlement and manipulation of Bithumb’ share price on the stock market, in which also the head of the firm’s parent company is believed to be involved.

The investigation is also taking place regarding several top executives of a related Inbiogen company who holds a major stock of shared of Vidente. As a source reports, Park worked for them and did the accounting part. It has also been alleged that those siblings – executives had shuffled all the blame on Park.

Now, the Park case is expected to be closed upon his death.
