Korean woman, boyfriend arrested for drowning murder of her husband for life insurance payout

  • Lee Eun-hae, 31, and Cho Hyeon-soo, 30, were arrested at a residential building in South Korea’s Gyeonggi Province on Saturday.
  • The two have been accused of being involved in a 2019 incident widely referred to online as the “Gapyeong Valley Murder Case.”
  • With the help of Cho, Lee reportedly convinced her husband, who could not swim, to jump off a cliff in Gapyeong County. The suspects then left Lee’s husband to drown in the river below.
  • Lee’s father helped the authorities by giving them the couple’s apartment number. Their arrest came 17 days after the Incheon Metropolitan Police posted a wanted notice about them last month.
  • “We found their hideout by investigating the residents around them,” authorities said. “While there were only the two of them inside the room, we plan to find out if they have received help from others.”
  • Investigators suspect the crime was motivated by a life insurance payout worth 800 million won (approximately $644,000).

A South Korean woman and her male accomplice, who is reportedly her extra-marital paramour, were arrested on Saturday for the murder of the woman’s husband in 2019.
