South Korean police on Sunday found a dead man crucified in a deserted location southeast of Seoul.
The man identified by the surname Kim was seen with both hands and feet nailed to a cross made of wood. A crown of thorns was placed on his head, according to the police on Wednesday in a report by the AP.
Wearing only underwear, the 58-year-old man had a wound on his side with nylon strings tied around his arms, neck and stomach.
Police chief Chung Ji-chun said they found Kim on Sunday in Mungyong about 190 kilometers (115 miles) southeast of the capital.
Also seen were two smaller crosses on both sides of the cross he was nailed to, an electric drill, a hammer, nails, instructions on how to build crosses and a vehicle that was owned by the dead man.
Authorities are waiting for the results of forensic examination to know when he died, the cause of his death or if it were a suicide or a homicide.
Christians are familiar with this scene when Jesus Christ was crucified with two robbers likewise put on a cross on his sides, which is observed every year during the Holy Week that fell on 17-21 April this year.
