Police feel they are moving closer to a positive identification of the skeletal remains of a man discovered in the jungle at Bukit Penulisan, Kintamani.
DenPost reports that the remains are believed to be those of a 67-year-old South Korean man, Chun Bock Man, who disappeared from his Abiansemal, Denpasar home three months ago. The man, prior to his disappearance, taught Korean language and was active in a local Pentecostal Church.
Working from immigration documents held by the South Korean, items of clothing and dental evidence police are now preparing to conduct DNA tests that would positively identify if the remains found are those of the missing South Korean.
The dental remains of the body found in the jungle have gold fillings, a trait he shared with the missing man. The brand of a pair of shoes found near the body are the same as an empty box found at the South Korean's now vacant residence.
Police say that only after they have a positive identity of the missing remains can they truly begin to investigate the circumstance behind his disappearance and whether or not the man died of natural causes.
