Seoul Jane Doe was a woman whose arms and torso were discovered in a sack at the Jungnang Sewage Treatment Plant in Seoul, South Korea, by an employee. Her remains were initially believed to have belonged to Cheonan Jane Doe, though this was later disproven through DNA.

She was identified in 2008 after her husband, Kim Mo, was arrested for her murder. Her name has never been released.

Case

On the 22nd of August in 2006, an employee at the Jungnang Sewage Treatment Plant in the Seongdong district of Seoul stumbled across a plastic sack while moving garbage bags. Upon opening the bag, he discovered the dismembered arms and torso of a woman and immediately notified the police.

Upon autopsy, it was determined that the decedent had been deceased anywhere from six months to a year before her discovery alongside her occupation being determined as a housewife. The decedent's remains were initially believed to have belonged to Cheonan Jane Doe, who was discovered seven months prior, as she was missing her torso and arms. Though, this was later disproven through DNA and classified as a coincidence.

Identification

In 2008, it was announced that Kim Mo was arrested following a report from his daughter that her mother had been missing. Through DNA analysis, it was confirmed that the decedent was related to the daughter and identified as Kim's wife, resulting in him being charged with her murder. Further details about the decedent and the case have not been publicly disclosed.

Ironically, the decedent's husband had the same name as the employee who discovered her remains, though they have been confirmed to not be the same man.
