Park Won-Soon Dead - Mayor of Seoul Found Dead After Going Missing at 64

Park Won-Soon has died.

The 64-year-old mayor of Seoul was found dead on a mountainside within the city, CNN confirmed Thursday (July 9).

His body was found on Bukak mountain in the Seongbuk-gu neighborhood, which is close to his official residence in Jongno-gu.

The police have not yet revealed how he died due to privacy, but they “have not ruled out foul play.” There was no suicide note, and his belongings were reportedly found nearby.

He was first reported missing by his daughter on Thursday evening (July 8), leading to a search by hundreds of police officers and firefighters. His body was ultimately found by a rescue dog.

He had been Seoul’s mayor since 2011, and was considered a likely hopeful for the 2022 presidential elections.

Our thoughts are with Park Won-Soon‘s loved ones at this difficult time.
