Ferry disaster: 100 days of investigations Updated: 2014-07-24 22:02:43 KST

It's been one-hundred days now since their loved ones were taken away from them.

"I still try to take in the scent of my son, from his room, his blankets, and his bed. I haven't touched his room at all."

How far has the country come in giving these families the answers they so deserve, on WHY the accident happened and WHO is responsible?
The ruling and opposition parties have still been unable to come to an agreement over a special law on the Sewol-ho accident,.. aimed at uncovering the cause.

"The whole nation has been asking for a new Korea. But the Park Geun-hye administration has not been able to take a single step forward since the disaster."

"Using the suffering from the Sewol-ho disaster for political gains dishonors the victims and hurts the victims' families."

Demanding progress on the bill, some victims' families have gone on hunger strikes and days-long marches.
The massive manhunt for Yoo Byung-eun, ended in vain, when it was confirmed earlier this week that
his heavily decomposed body was found last month.
Taking responsibility over the failure to catch Yoo Byung-eun, the senior prosecutor in charge of the investigation, Choi
Jae-kyung offered to resign.
Prosecutors also revealed that Yoo was hiding behind an upstairs wall in one of his villas in the south of the country, and that investigators had searched the building while he was presumably there.
The revelations are only adding to the growing distrust of the prosecution,.. which has funneled massive financial resources into the investigation, to no avail.
Down in Paengmok harbor,.. at the site of the accident, search operations continue for the 10 victims that remain unaccounted for.
Two-hundred-94 people have been confirmed dead.
