Panty Thief and One-Time Suspected Murderer Released From Prison

Oregon man Sung Koo Kim spent nearly six years in prison for a series of burglaries in which he stole thousands of panties and bras from college women. In 2004, Kim was a suspect in the disappearance and murder of 19-year-old student Brooke Wilberger. Though Kim was dropped as a suspect in that case, it was during the course of this investigation that authorities came upon his collection of lingerie.
