The Seongnam Police Agency had previously requested an autopsy warrant for Sulli. They claimed they would only move forward with the autopsy if her family allowed it. And it appears they’ve gotten the consent from the court and her family members.
The police agency announced that they will be performing an autopsy in order to confirm her cause of death. Although there are no other distinct signs other than death by suicide, they explained that they want to confirm the truth.
Although it appears Sulli died by suicide, we will be performing an autopsy in order to confirm that there are no other causes.
Since there were no witnesses at her time of death, we plan to thoroughly confirm her cause of death.

Sulli was found in her home on October 14 around 3:20 pm by her manager who drove to her home after failing to get in touch with her. The manager last contacted Sulli around 6 pm the night before and did not hear back from her since. The manager had been worried about Sulli’s health since she was suffering from depression. Reports claim that there a suicide note was found near her body.
It remains uncertain if the Seongnam Police Agency will announce their final conclusions or if they will keep the information quiet for the family members.
