A safe from the late Goo Hara’s house disappeared and the deceased’s brother, Goo Ho In, reported the theft to the police.
On October 12, Dispatch released two footage from the security cameras installed at Goo Hara’s house taken on January 14. In the footage, a man climbed the parking lot’s fence next door attached to Goo Hara’s house, and covered the camera installed at the outer wall of the first floor with leaves.
Then another man walked across the yard and pressed the door lock keypad, but when the door did not open, he put his face on the windshield and looked inside the house. When the two failed to enter the house through the front door, they changed their route and entered the second floor’s veranda. The route they took was veranda-door-utility room-door-dressing room.
What the two stole is Goo Hara’s small safe that contains the artist’s important data and her used phones.
Goo Ho In believes that the theft was committed by someone who knew the late Goo Hara. Not only did they know the previous password of the keypad, but they also knew the structure of the house. He said, “He knew the layout of the house well. There’s no way someone who was there for the first time would know the house that well. He even knew that we don’t really lock the balcony door.”
Noh Jong Won, a lawyer who is acting as a legal representative for Goo Ho In, said in a telephone interview, “The safe has been stolen, and we have no idea who these thieves are. We already reported this to the police in May, but the suspects are yet to be identified, so there has been no progress in the case.”
