Comedian and dental student Jiwon Lee went missing at the beginning of April. Rumors started to circulate that she may have committed suicide. This week, a body matching Jiwon’s description was pulled out of the Hudson. She’s the second person pulled out of the Hudson River last week. Andrew Jarzyk’s disappeared in Hoboken last month and his body washed up in the Hudson this week. Sad! and WEIRD!
The family has released the following statement via the GoFundMe page they had running:
Thank you for your continued prayers, donations, and support. Unfortunately, Jiwon, beloved daughter, sister, and friend has gone on to a better place. Our family thanks you at this time for respecting our privacy. We are currently planning a memorial service to honor Jiwon and will post further details as soon as possible.
The NY Post notes: “Her cellphone was tracked to the George Washington Bridge, prompting speculation she had jumped.”
