May 18th cart-corpses mystery search 41 years later

41년째 미궁 5·18 손수레 시신' 행방 찾는다
May 18th cart-corpses mystery search 41 years later

 

The May 18th Truth Investigation Committee is seeking to find the whereabouts and the identities of the so called 'May 18th Cart-Corpses' that are still unclear after 41 years.

 

These are 2 corpses that were delivered in a cart in the early dawn of 1980 May 21st around Gwangju Station to be moved to the front of the old Jeonnam Provincial Hall of the Gwangju Donggu(동구) Geumnamro(금남로) area.

 

They were not the first deaths, but are well known as deaths as they were the first witnessed by many citizens during the incident.

 

They became the trigger for many citizens to participate in the demonstrations in rage after witnessing with their own eyes that the 'Martial Military killed citizens.'

 

However, it is still unclear as to who these corpses were and where they were moved to.

 

The last place these corpses were checked was back in 1980 May 21st in the afternoon at the Geumnamro(금남로) area in front of the old Jeonnam Provincial Hall.
