In a report from American station KGET, it has been reported that K-pop idol Samuel's father has passed away after being murdered in his home in Mexico.

According to the news report, a close family friend confirmed that Jose Arrendondo was found dead in his home in Cabo San Lucas on Tuesday morning.

Arrendondo was a car dealer who grew up in Mexico and moved to the United States, where he became a locally well-known owner of several Californian car dealerships, and a real estate agency.

There has been no further confirmation of his passing, and Samuel's agency Brave Entertainment has said: "We have seen the report. We have no method of verifying this currently".

Our deepest condolences to Samuel and his family.
