LG Phone did not killed the Korean man, his friend did!

LG Phone did not killed the Korean man, his friend did!

We recently saw a chain of news about a Korean man that was killed by an LG cellphone; after police investigation, it turns out that he was actually murdered by his friend that apparently also the first witness of the event. LG reaffirmed the public that its battery is safe and did not cause this tragedy. The media are quick in picking the incident’s story and putting LG phone battery as the main suspect. I guess bad news spread way faster than good news.
