A repairman in a provincial middle school killed his boss at the school in full view of the children. Cheonan Police in South Chungcheong Province on Thursday arrested the 38-year-old man identified by his surname Lee for killing his boss, a 52-year-old man identified as Kang. Lee, the school repairman, stabbed Kang, the head of the administrative office, multiple times in the side at 1:25 p.m. in a stack room of the administrative office.
The police said the investigation shows Lee had a personal grudge against Kang, who often ignored him or scolded him for clumsy work.
Since the stabbing happened during the lunch time, some 40 students who were passing by the administrative office witnessed the killing, and the whole school descended into chaos as students screamed and wept. The vice principal of the school, identified as Yoon, said, “The whole school, the teachers and the students alike, are in great shock after a tragedy that should never have happened. It was difficult to carry out classes in the afternoon” After consulting with the local education office, the school is planning to arrange for counseling with psychiatrists for students affected by the incident.
