Paul Koh Identified Victim in Homicide Case in Northbrook, Father Charged

Paul Koh, 22, was found dead in his home in the 1900 block of Birch Rd at about 3:45 a.m. He was pronounced dead at Highland Park Hospital in Highland Park at 4:18 a.m. Thursday morning. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday. Neck wounds, possibly stab wounds were observed on the victims neck.

The victim’s father Hyungseok Koh, 56, has been charged with first-degree murder in the case. Police believe an argument between father and son turned violent.

Koh’s page shows he graduated from Glenbrook North High School in 2005 and attended Western Illinois University as part of the Class of 2009.

Neighbors have reported that either the deceased or a friend of the deceased may have been knocking on front doors in the neighborhood while naked about two weeks ago.

  1. He actually is innocent, they have DNA evidence that shows Hyungseok Koh wasn’t even at the scene when the tragedy took place, there was an unidentified additional DNA that points to another unknown person. Hyungseok Koh has been wrongfully imprisoned for over a year now, and justice needs to prevail in their favor.

  2. It’s not fair to judge a case based entirely on a testimonial. DNA evidence points that there was another person involved other than the accused Henry Koh.
