Resident reveals more about man living in unit

A resident on the same floor told Shin Min Daily News that a young man lived in the unit. He usually had all his flat doors and windows closed, and rarely talked to others.

“An old couple lived in that unit before,” he said. “After the husband passed away, the wife also moved out, and the man moved in later.”

He also believed the man to be a food delivery rider, with his bike parked in the corridor on weekdays. When it was gone, he knew that the man was working.

On the day of the incident, he did not see the vehicle anywhere in the hallway.

The resident further noted that he would see a woman occasionally enter and leave the unit, though he did not know the nature of her relationship with the man.

Police say investigations are ongoing

Responding to queries, police confirmed they received a report about the death at around 1.30pm on 4 Oct. They said the woman was sent to Singapore General Hospital while unconscious and later passed away.

It is understood that the cause of death was drug overdose.

Police added that a 43-year-old man was assisting with investigations, and the whereabouts of three others, including the woman’s fiancĂ©, were unknown. Authorities are currently on the search for them.

They also stated that preliminary investigations revealed the case did not involve homicide.
