Panty thief set to be released from prison

Posted: Updated:

A convicted panty thief is about to get out of prison.

Sung Koo Kim's projected release day is Christmas Eve, Dec. 24.

A jury convicted Kim for a series of burglaries and thefts from the campuses of George Fox University in Newberg and Linfield College in McMinnville back in the spring of 2004.

Investigators said they recovered thousands of panties, bras and other personal items from Kim's bedroom in Tigard when they served a search warrant there.

Officers also found bags of used sanitary products, dryer lint, guns and ammunition, according to court documents.

Those court documents also said that Kim labeled many of the recovered undergarments with identifying information that showed where, when and who the items were taken from.

Investigators said that Kim's computer contained thousands of extremely violent and horrific images of rape, torture and mutilation.

Kim was also once considered a suspect in the 2004 disappearance of Brooke Wilberger, but it turned out he was falsely accused. Another man later pleaded guilty to killing her.

When Kim is released from incarceration, he will  be subject to probation.

Those conditions will require Kim to undergo treatment, as well as restrict his access to schools, apartments and other places where potential victims could be found.
