Bones in water tank those of murdered Filipino, police say
By Park Si-soo

Human bones found inside a factory's water purifying tank in Hwaseong are believed to be those of a Filipino worker who went missing in January 2016, police said in an interim investigation report, Tuesday.

Police are trying to contact the worker's family in the Philippines for a DNA test.

The worker was in his early 30s when he vanished. He arrived in South Korea in August 2014 and worked at a manufacturing plant in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province.

Workers found the bones, inside a jacket, while cleaning the plant's water purifying tank early this month.

Police said the skeleton's left side was crushed, indicating something had hit the victim. Investigators believed this happened when the man was alive.

“Now we are working to find the person responsible,” a police official said.

Police said the victim was believed to have been killed elsewhere and the body then dumped in the tank.

Police said they had believed the victim was a foreigner because the jacket was a Southeast Asian brand not sold in Korea.
