    Man brought back to Singapore over alleged murder in Beach Road shop

    ANN/THE STRAITS TIMES – A man who allegedly murdered a woman and fled to Malaysia has been caught and brought back to Singapore.

    Last week, the police found the woman inside a shop in Beach Road, and she was pronounced dead at the scene. Rachael Ang Qi Ying, 27, had disappeared on November 9, prompting desperate pleas from friends and family for information on her whereabouts.

    On Wednesday, the police said the 50-year-old man had been identified and he had left for Malaysia on the morning of November 10.

    The Singapore police asked the Royal Malaysia Police for help, and he was detained in Malaysia on Tuesday before being handed over to the Singapore authorities on Wednesday.

    Ang’s last message to her mother was on November 9, saying she would not be returning home. But five days later, her loved ones received the shocking news that she was found dead.

    Based on their social media posts, at about 7pm on November 9, Ang had called her mother and said she would be home soon. But at about 7.20pm, her mother received a message from her number saying she would not be going home.

    In a Facebook post on November 11, Ang’s mother said that was the last message she received from her daughter, and asked for help in finding her.

    Ang’s friends and family members later put up more posts on social media appealing for information.

    On Monday, Ang’s family members revealed on social media that she had been found dead.

    When contacted by The Straits Times, a family member declined to comment, saying the family was still unclear about the circumstances leading to Ang’s death.

    The 50-year-old man was charged with murder yesterday. If convicted, he faces the death penalty.

    The police said: “The Singapore authorities will do whatever is necessary and permissible under our laws to pursue and bring to justice those who commit crimes in Singapore, regardless of where they might have fled to.”
