A South Korean man going by the name released as Mr. K, stands accused for the April, 2010 murder of his girlfriend. His girlfriend, who is being
referred to as Ms. Y, died supposedly after eating sannakji, octopus that is killed just prior to eating it. The octopus tentacles are known to still
be twitching due to it being eaten so soon after killing it - the tentacles have been reported to constrict the throat due to this twitching state.
But here's the catch - Mr. K, a month prior to Ms. Y's death, had taken out a life insurance policy on her to the tune of 200,000,000 Won or the
equivalent of $175,000 U.S. dollars. Officials state that they found no evidence of sannakji in her system, but stated that no official autopsy had
been performed prior to her cremation. So, if Mr. K did indeed kill his girlfriend, there is no way to determine that now and there is a good chance
that Mr. K could get away with murder. It looks like a case of forensic incompetence due to lack of an official autopsy.
