Back in June, 24-year-old male Korean National Min-Woo Cho (pictured right) went missing. "There was no evidence of wrongdoing or foul play noted. The victim had simply vanished," explained the LAPD in a statement. A month later, an unidentified body was found in Northeast LA. But through DNA evidence, detectives connected Cho to both cases and were also able to come up with a suspect. Today, the LAPD announced 24-year-old Steven Hyun Kwon's capture from back in October. However, motive for Cho's murder is unknown and police are still looking for info regarding this case.
