Native English Teacher Found Dead in Suicide

This is pretty sad news.

Several years ago someone we knew committed suicide, not over depression, but likely because of large gambling debts.  Regardless of the reason, there’s always a way out other than suicide.  Keep your friends close and stay positive.  I know that it’s sometimes hard in this always hectic country but when you’re at your worst, you can only go up.

A Korean-Canadian, who worked in Busan as a native English teacher, was found dead in an apparent suicide, police said Thursday.

Police said the teacher identified by his surname Kim, was found hanging at home near Haeundae, a scenic beach in the nation’s second largest city, at 5:20 p.m. Wednesday. The head of a private language institute where the 35-year-old Canadian worked first reported it to police.

He told them that he found the teacher hanging in the living room when he visited the apartment, as the teacher missed work and did not respond to repeated phone calls, Wednesday.

“We believe it’s a suicide because no signs of foul play were found on the body,” a detective familiar with the case said. “But we will continue to investigate to find the exact cause of death.”
