The news of a step-mother who locked up her 9-year-old step-son in a suitcase for 7 hours which ultimately led to his passing recently stirred outrage among Korean citizens.
And as soon as the news broke out, netizens set out to find the social media account belonging to the step-mother in question.
Upon the discovery of what the netizens are claiming to be the step-mother’s Instagram account, people were even more outraged.
Many of her posts are food photos that she captioned with the worry of needing to lose weight.
But what particularly enraged netizens were the fact that she fed her biological son and daughter lots of food such as spicy noodles and pork belly, but the step-son, who passed away due to her actions, was underweight for his age.
Netizens are speculating that while she took good care of her biological children, she treated her step-son completely differently.
They are now terrorizing the account with malicious comments such as “It’s your son and daughter who will be punished, not you“, “I hope you live your life in pain. And your son and daughter will also be pained when looking at you“, and “I feel like throwing up when I look at you“.
On June 1, the 9-year-old boy was discovered in cardiac arrest following his step-mother’s report.
It was revealed that when the boy urinated in the first suitcase he was confined to, his step-mother moved him to an even smaller suitcase, and she even left the house for 3 hours with the boy locked up inside the bag.
The boy passed away in the hospital 4 days later on June 4.
