Lai Wenshao and Cai Huijuan claimed Ahyeong suffered seizures while at their clinic, but prosecutors alleged to the news agency AFP that her death was the result of “murder accompanied by torture.”

According to the BBC, Ahyeong grew a following on Instagram as a broadcast jockey for the video streaming service AfreecaTV, but she recently announced she was leaving in order to live her life “as a normal person.”
