Since the investigation is still in its early stage, police explained that they are working under all assumption.
The 25-year-old singer debuted as a member of K-pop girl group f(x) in 2009.
However, she announced her hiatus in 2014 after suffering from malicious comments online.
Following her departure from the group, Sulli made appearances on multiple films, dramas, and variety shows.
During her appearance on a TV show last year, Sulli confessed that she once suffered from social phobia and sudden panic attack.
In addition to scene investigations, police stated that they plan to speak to family members and close acquaintances of Sulli to further investigate the case.
