Eldest son of fugitive ferry owner Yoo Byung-eun arrestedUpdated: 2014-07-25 19:23:55 (KST)
The eldest son of Korea's most wanted man Yoo Byung-eun, was arrested this Friday evening.
Yoo and his son Dae-kyun had been evading authorities over the past two months, as the family's corrupt business was believed to be the key factor that led to the April ferry disaster.
Authorities had been offering a bounty of more than 97-thousand U.S. dollars for his capture.
And regarding the body of his father Yoo Byung-eun, that was found last month, the state forensic service says it's failed to figure out the cause of death because the body was severely decomposed.
But it did refute conspiracy theories suggesting Yoo's death was faked saying DNA samples, a fingerprint sample, dental records and height all matched that of the 73-year-old Yoo.
