The 45-year-old man's body was found almost mummified in his apartment in Busan by his father-in-law, 57, who notified the police.
``I hadn't seen him in over a year. When I went to his home, he was lying straight on his back,'' the father-in-law was quoted as saying by the police.
The man, identified as Goh, apparently died of lung cancer Jan. 2, according to the police investigation.
His wife, a 37-year-old Christian, did not arrange a funeral ceremony and continued to pray, believing that prayer would lead to a miracle, according to the police.
