1,040 bodies have been discovered in Kyungjoo, near Toh Am Mountain, in a forested land that is owned by a cult. 


To make things even more twisted, it has been revealed that the police investigated this back in 2014 but never reported its findings. Why did they do this?

The forest land is owned by Faith Town, a place where people who are a part of a well-known cult live together. The cult, Chunbukyo Church, worships its late leader, Park Tae Sun, as a god, and for that, have been officially labeled as a cult by Christian churches in Korea.  

The bodies that were discovered were buried secretly, without a legal permit; police in the local area had knowledge of this and started an investigation but quietly ended it without any official reports. 


The strangeness related to this case does not end there. 




In a list that CBS No Cut News acquired, it shows the names, tombstone numbers, gender, death dates, burial dates, and family information of the buried people. However, 40 of them have no such information, making them unidentifiable. 




A committee that formed to prevent damages by cult organizations held a press conference back in 2014, accusing Chunbukyo of illegally burying bodies, but the evidence has only been revealed now. 


Many are puzzled by the lack of action from the police, accusing the police department of being a part of or working with the cult. One member of the committee stated, "It's impossible to understand...There are a lot of rumors about someone powerful who is backing the Chunbukyo Church."

    I'm confused.  They kept records of everyone that died except for 40 unidentified remains?  They didn't obtain burial permits?  Other than the permits how is what they're doing suspicious?

    To total up over 1000 'illegal' burials (no permits) seems fairly odd. But I will agree that there is NOT much else to the story. I suppose an 'unapproved' Religious Cult 'connection' gets attention too.
