Online rally around mother's plea forces police to reinvestigate coed's death
By Kim Eun-jung
SEOUL, Jan. 12 (Yonhap) -- Police said Wednesday they will reinvestigate the death of a female college student whose mother's plea for a fair probe led to an online rally by thousands of supporters.

The mother of the victim said in a posting Friday on Daum, a major portal site, that her daughter was beaten to death by two men who tried to rape her, but the police refused to conduct a thorough probe because one of the suspects was a relative of a former police officer.
