According to a Report In The Daily Beast, he miraculously escapes from a tomb in a forest and knocks on a stranger’s door for help. According to the affidavit, the 911 operator told police that a woman called 911 but was “gagged” and “not talking.” The operator also “reportedly heard banging and struggling in the background, but after a while it became completely silent.”
The police located the cell phone tower and visited her house but could not find it. They found “disturbing signs,” the report cited the affidavit. The report said that on October 17, a stranger came to Ms.’s home and asked for help. When the police arrived, she ran towards them and asked for help, saying, “My husband wants to kill me.”
Ms. Young’s husband, Chae Kyong An, tied her hands and feet with duct tape, then stabbed her in the chest and buried her alive. The couple is in a divorce battle and the husband wants to keep his pension money out of her hands, the report said.
The victim told the police that Chai became angry after the husband and wife were discussing about divorce and money and told them to leave. When Young went into the bedroom to change, Chai attacked her, hitting her on the head several times and knocking her to the floor. He duct-taped her and left for a while.
When Chai returns, he drags her out of the bedroom. The Daily Beast reports that the affidavit cites that knowing she had an Apple Watch, he hit the watch with a hammer and then hit her wrist. He then forced her into a van and took her to a nearby forest where he stabbed her and buried her alive.
Chai was arrested on October 17 and the police also found the grave where he tried to bury his wife. They also found strands of her hair, pieces of duct tape and the broken frame of her Apple Watch.
