] A senior official at Korea Aerospace Industries was found dead on Sept. 21 in an apparent suicide, police said, amid a widening probe into an array of suspected irregularities at the aircraft maker.
Police said Kim In-sik, KAI vice president in charge of overseas business, was found hanged at his home in Sacheon, South Gyeongsang Province, at around 8:40 a.m.
KAI has been hit by a massive corruption scandal. Its former chief Ha Seong-yong has been detained over his alleged involvement in a series of malpractices from accounting fraud to illicit hiring.
