Handwriting on Explosive Document 'Is Jang Ja-yeon's'

      March 18, 2009 11:15

      The handwriting of a document thought to have been left by Jang Ja-yeon before her apparent suicide is highly likely to be the actress' own, police said Tuesday quoting the National Institute of Scientific Investigation. Police received the document shown on KBS last Saturday via fax from the network and asked the NISI to check the handwriting.

      A police spokesman said since it was a copy, they cannot be 100 percent sure and have not confirmed whether there are additional documents other than the one KBS aired.

      Police are investigating no fewer than 96,973 phone calls in the history of Jang and six other people close to her from three telecom providers. Police also found a memo left by Jang titled "Death Note" in the back of a novel in her home, listing the names of figures in the entertainment industry and her anger and resentment towards them. "Death Note" is a popular Japanese comic series, and in the story, if the owner of a laptop computer writes the names of people in it, they die.

      In the broadcast document, Jang alleges her management agency forced her to have sex and threatened violence.
