After arriving at the scene, Shin Min reporters said they could still detect a strong stench in the air, likely from a corpse.
The unit’s neighbours shared that they rarely saw the deceased and said he likely lived alone.
They also claimed that he doesn’t usually interact with his neighbours and as such, residents didn’t know about his death till the police arrived.
Nearby residents frightened by string of incidents
The discovery occurred just a day after authorities found the bodies of a woman and a baby at the foot of Block 35 Eunos Crescent.
According to ST, the blocks are located 50 metres away from each other.
Given their proximity, nearby residents have expressed fear about living in the area.
A female resident who saw the bodies of the woman and baby said she had not been sleeping well after the incident.
The resident also said that a group of women used to socialise at the void deck of Block 35. However, the area has reportedly been quiet since the discovery of the corpses.
MS News extends our heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased. May he rest in peace.
