| by DeepDiveAdmin

South Korea was in shock this weekend over the news that former president Roo Moo-hyun apparently commited suicide by flinging himself of a mountain cliff behind his home. Authorities are continuing to investigate the incident, but family members and a family attorney have confirmed that Moo-Hyun left a suicide note.

After making anti-corruption a hallmark of his administration, Moo-hyun and his family had recently become the subject of a corruption and bribery investigation.
