While final confirmation is still needed, police believe they have found the body of Sewol ferry operator Yoo Byung-eun.

According to officials, police have found what is believed to be the body of fugitive owner of the Sewol Ferry. The body was first discovered back on June 12th in a plum orchard in the southern city of Suncheon, about 300 kilometers south of Seoul.

The decomposing body was lying face up, wearing a winter jacket and a hat, officials said. Alcohol bottles were also found littered around the body, but the exact timing and cause of death are not yet known.

"We carried out a DNA test after finding a dead body in Suncheon, and the results fairly matched that of Yoo's brother," a police official said. "We need to look more closely into this, but the body is believed to be Yoo's."

"We are waiting for the final results due from the National Forensic Service," said a senior prosecution official.
