SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean police said on Thursday they had found the skeleton of a man in the southern port city of Busan about six years after he apparently committed suicide.
The man, identified only as Kim, was 49 when he apparently hung himself in the corner of a boiler room in the run-down building where he lived in 2006, a Busan police official told AFP.

The official said a wall calendar in his apartment was dated at November 2006, and there was a pile of unopened mail dating back to January 2007.
