LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police in South Korea detained the son of the owner of the ferry that sank in April, which killed more than 300 people.

They had been looking for the 73-year-old ferry owner until last month. That's when authorities found his body after a massive manhunt.

They weren't able to determine how the owner died.

Police say the man's son was also on the run and is a major shareholder in his father's company.
