On Bill Kapoun’s memorial card (courtesy of Judy Kapoun)

This show was recorded on Thursday, November 5th, 2009.  In early 2008 the story of a teacher named Bill Kapoun and his Korean girlfriend succumbing to a fire in his apartment rattled the expat community awake.  It was the first time our lot actually banded together to help people in need and sparked a new era of community consciousness.

It has been almost two years since Bill and his girlfriend died and the family stopped accepting donations.  When Bill’s body left Korea, he left behind many mysteries.  Bill’s family has not spoken much until now.

This is his story.
