      Former president Roh Moo-hyun jumped to his death on Saturday not at 6:45 a.m. as initially reported but half an hour earlier, between 6:14 and 6:17 a.m.

      South Gyeongsang Province police on Wednesday said Roh on the day of the accident told Lee Byung-choon, the head of his security detail, to go to a nearby temple where the memorial tablets of Roh's parents are enshrined to see if the abbot was there. Lee went to the temple at 6:14 a.m., and it was 6:17 a.m. when he came back to Owl Rock and realized that Roh was missing.

      Police also said there was nobody who actually witnessed Roh's fall.
