- “Attack on Titan” editor Park Jung-Hyun was arrested after being suspected of murdering his wife
- Although he claimed that his wife collapsed after falling down the stairs, autopsy revealed she was engaged in an altercation prior her death
- He was taken into custody only days after the season 2 trailer of the anime was released
The initial editor behind the internationally acclaimed manga and anime series, “Attack on Titan,” has been arrested.
According to the report written by Buzzy.ph, chief editor Park Jung-Hyun is suspected of being the man behind his wife’s mysterious death back in August of 2016.
Tokyo’s emergency respondents found Jung-Hyun’s wife unconscious at his apartment, where she was ‘lying face-up at the base of the stairwell in a state of cardiopulmonary arrest.’ Although the city’s services arrived as quickly as they could, it was already too late since his wife was pronounced dead moments after arrival in the nearest hospital.
When asked regarding the cause of the incident, Jung-Hyun claimed that she ‘collapsed’ after falling down the flight of stairs.
However, official autopsy and evidences found later on did not match Jung-Hyun’s statements. They revealed that Jung-Hyun’s wife died after having extreme pressure applied on her throat, hence ending up in suffocation. In addition, ‘light gashes’ were present on her forehead.
Police were convinced that these were results of a physical fight which occurred at home, having Jung-Hyun being the first suspect in line.
Despite Jung-Hyun’s cries that his wife committed suicide, the officials proceeded on taking him into custody.
Jung-Hyun’s arrest came only days after the trailer for the second season of the series was released. This will not affect “Attack on Titan,” but it still remains unclear whether he will continue working under the company once he becomes free from the charges.
Another woman who probably shared the same sentiments with Jung-Hyun’s late wife if charges were proven true is this Kenyan lady.
“Attack on Titan” is a huge success worldwide with fans clamoring for an earlier release of updates.
