SOUTH KOREA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The massive manhunt for a fugitive billionaire linked to the deadly ferry sinking in South Korea is now over.

But Tuesday morning official tests confirm a decomposing body found June 12th in a plum orchard is Yoo.

He was wanted in connection with an investigation into alleged embezzlement and tax evasion that prosecutors say may have factored into the ferry sinking in April.
