Seoul's mayor found dead

The mayor of Seoul Park Won-soon has been found dead in a forest in the South Korean capital, police said.

Park disappeared after his former secretary reportedly filed a criminal complaint against him, accusing him of sexually harassing her.

No suicide note was left behind, and his belongings were found nearby, said Choi Ik-soo, an official at Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s Crime department, during a briefing on Friday.
The 64-year-old was first reported missing by his daughter on Thursday evening, according to a police official with knowledge of the case.

Park had been Seoul’s mayor since 2011.
