In some strange news coming out today there is a rumor that Kim Jong-Il, the leader of North Korea, is dead. Not only is he dead, but he has been since 2003.
A Japanese expert on North Korea is claiming that the role of the “Dear Leader” has instead been played by a group of doubles since 2003, when he says the President died of diabetes.
It is an interesting story that has apparently been heavily researched using news footage, pictures, and even voice prints to compare known Jong-Il clips prior to 2003 with more current examples. Since North Korea is not what you would call an easy place to get information out of this story cannot be 100 percent confirmed, but it will be watched more closely going forward.
