More updates on the Michael White story from his mother......................

Yesterday, I went to the police station to submit Corina' witness statement. Because the police didn't want to have an appt on the weekend, we had to arrange the statement in proper fashion, have a translations done, then have both papers sealed with thumbprints etc. Lots of fun let me tell you. Some more details were disclosed to me, but the essential part is that the police don't have any evidence that this was an accident/health issue and no witnesses to support a murder charge. They assured me they are pursuing this as a murder investigation first and an accident as secondary. Time will tell of course.

The police have told me I have have Michael prepared without closing the investigation. They only problem with that would be no second autopsy could be preformed if needed. I am now seeking a second autopsy because a sexually assault kit was not done at the hospital or the autopsy. It's definitely not something I want to have happened, yet no stone should be left unturned.

Again, there are lots of things happening out there... A steak dinner being planned in Cheonan area, A Motorbike ride being planned for the west coast... lets take a few minutes to post here so we can pool our energies & resources to make things smoother.

In humble thanks

Hey Mike,

We also interviewed Stephanie on the SeoulPodcast if you want to add that to the info. She gave a lot of information and personal thoughts that aren't in the email updates.
