But the emails stopped, and they reported the 32-year-old missing. Turns out, his business partner had killed him at the office and faked the whole Africa trip story. The business partner, Edward Younghoon Shin, has confessed after being arrested at the airport on Sunday, Aug. 28, 2011. Shin's personal assistant has also been arrested for helping to cover up the crime. Smith's body has not been located. Much more at link.
