When police got there, a man told them he thought there was a dead body inside the truck of a silver Jaguar parked outside of the business. Police investigated the car and confirmed a body was found inside the trunk.

Detectives are still trying to figure out how the man knew the body was there. The man who called police after finding the body has not been identified.


Police said investigators and homicide detectives, crime scene investigators and the medical examiner’s office responded to the scene.

Investigators have not said if they have been able to determine how the person died or the gender of the victim. It’s unclear who owns the car or how long it had been parked in front of the business.

Jeju issued a statement Wednesday afternoon, saying the incident had “absolutely nothing to do with” their business and was confined to the parking lot.

“The safety and well-being of our customers have always been our utmost priority,” officials with the spa wrote. “We are fully cooperating with local law enforcement authorities who are currently investigating the matter. We are confident that they will bring those responsible to justice swiftly.”

Sauna officials said they have security officers who patrol the parking lot.
