There is little possibility that the investigation records went missing randomly, and there is suspicion that someone has intentionally stolen them.
It has been confirmed that the basic data throughout a year before Jang Ja Yeon’s death about the people that forced Jang Ja Yeon, who died on March 7, 2009, to entertain them with alcohol and sex has disappeared from investigation records kept by the prosecution.
Park Jinhyun, who was ordered by the Supreme Public Prosecutors’ Office to investigate the reason of Jang Ja Yeon’s death, said in a telephone interview with Hankook Ilbo on Wednesday that the investigation team did not have any of Jang Ja Yeon’s telephone records. The phone records loss is likely to be a major obstacle to the investigation as they cannot be restored again.

If the Supreme Public Prosecutors’ Office finds out who stole Jang Ja Yeon‘s phone records, the incident will likely to cause another stir. “At that time, I heard from a Chosun Ilbo
“However, while looking into Jang Ja Yeon’s phone records, I don’t remember seeing any call history of Jang Ja Yeon and Mr. Bang or with Mr. Bang’s son at all”, said Park Jinhyun. Lee, who investigated the case in 2009, also said, “The police confirmed that there was no history of Jang Ja Yeon‘s phone conversation” However, with the loss of the records, the truth of the incident is likely to be a mystery again.
