Following Jongyhun's death on December 18, an investigation into the circumstances of the SHINee singer's passing was launched by the police. After two days of investigating, the official findings have been released.

According to News1, a source from the Gangnam police reportedly stated that the results of their investigation concluded that Jonghyun had died by suicide.
