The South Chungcheong Province Police Agency and the city's emergency rescue services said Tuesday they had found the body of a teenage girl in a rice paddy in the province's Gongju, Jan. 25.

They said the body was discovered following a report of a person lying in a rice paddy in the town's Ssangsin-dong area, at around 8:45 a.m.

Rescue workers arriving at the site found the girl's body ― with no wounds or signs of injury ― and some of her clothes lying next to her.

An investigation by police officers revealed she was a 19 year old high school graduate who had been preparing to attend university.

The agency sent the body to the National Forensic Service to ascertain the exact cause of death ― an autopsy is scheduled for today. Gongju police, meanwhile, said they were searching for witnesses and checking surveillance cameras near the scene to uncover any clues leading to the girl's death.
