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.

Uh... This sounds like some kdrama plot where a person higher up bribes/threatens the police to keep quiet about their discoveries...

Can they stop calling these organizations Churches? I understand that (in this article at least) they separated Christians from Cults, but in Korea and whereever else in the world they call these organizations Churches, they need to stop. Churches are for those that believe in Jesus Christ. Some people in the world kill people for sacrifices and black magic and those are satanic things and the opposite of the Christian faith.

Amen to that. :)

I agree to that statement!

NOT really 'defending' this. BUT at least they did keep SOME kind of records as to who the people are. But 40 "nameless" people seems NOT so good a situation. I will guess that the POLICE wanted to AVOID the 'negative publicity' of the situation. And who knows, maybe the POLICE did get PAID ($$$$$) to do exactly that (ignore).

News Flash --> The (KR) COMFORT WOMEN (WW2) are accusing PARK GEUN HYE of corruption with regard to her 'deal making' with JAPAN on COMFORT WOMEN issues. Seems like PARK GEUN HYE has about 10 people left on her 'Christmas Card' list for this year! ... ;-)
