Beijing: Over a year after the shocking execution of her husband Jang Song Thaek, speculations about the fate of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's aunt Kim Kyung Hee are being reportedly made.
With no public appearance in a long time, speculations are being made on whether she is dead or alive.
The secretive nature of the country makes it difficult to confirm her fate, according to a news report on CNN.
According to a North Korean defector, she allegedly died of a stroke while arguing with the North Korean leader about the execution of her husband, the news report states.
She is the sister of Kim Jong II and was married to Jang Song Thaek, who was executed in December 2013.
Once touted as a powerful leader, the execution of “traitor” Jang Song Thaek had sent shock waves across the world.
