On April 3rd, Stephannie White toured the Royal Hawaii sauna in Gyeongsan where her 14-year-old son Michael was found dead last year. The judge ordered it because, as Stephannie wrote to me, there were discrepancies in the statements of the sauna employees. If you're on Facebook you can view the photos and the comments here; if you're not on Facebook, use this link. Not surprisingly, obstruction seemed to be the name of the game during the tour, as has been the story for the past eleven months.
You can read more about Michael's story, and his mother's nightmarish ordeal with the authorities, at her website Mightie Mike. If you have time to spare, give those episodes of Seoul Podcast a listen, too. There are transcripts of the podcasts on the site as well, or you can browse a few excerpts from this post last July.
