The body of a famous South Korean DJ, broadcaster, and influencer was found dead in a pond in Cambodia. Police arrested a Chinese couple who allegedly confessed to killing the well-known female broadcaster, BJ Ahyeong, in the nation’s capital Phnom Phen.
The 33 year old mysteriously disappeared from all of her social media platforms in March. Her body was discovered wrapped in a red cloth and abandoned in a pond in the Cambodian province of Kandal near Phnom Penh. The investigation led to the arrest of a married Chinese couple, 30 year old Lai Mou, and 39 year old Cai Mou, living in Phnom Penh, who confessed to disposing of her body.
Local Cambodian media reported that on Tuesday, June 6, the body of an anonymous woman was found in the pond. Initially, officials believed the victim was a South Korean tourist. Further investigation led to the identification of the body as the famous broadcaster, who had over 150,000 followers on her AfreecaTV streaming channel and more than 258,000 Instagram followers. BJ Ahyeong recently announced her intention to quit her profession and live a more ordinary life.
