S. Korea police confirm body is fugitive ferry owner

South Korean police said Tuesday that a body recovered from a field last month has been confirmed as that of Yoo Byung-Eun, a fugitive business tycoon wanted over April's ferry disaster.


DNA samples taken from the badly decomposed body matched Yoo's brother, and a print taken from one of the fingers "confirmed it was Yoo Byung-Eun", Woo Hyung-Ho, the police chief of Suncheon district where the body was found, told a press briefing.
