ANN/THE STRAITS TIMES – A 70-year-old man and his 92-year-old mother were found dead in their Tampines flat on Saturday morning.
In response to queries from The Straits Times, the police said they received a call for assistance at 11.56am.
When officers turned up at the 11th-storey flat in Block 285 Tampines Street 22, they found the two lying motionless. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
According to Chinese newspaper Shin Min Daily News, neighbours detected a foul stench originating from the flat.
A neighbour on the 10th storey told Shin Min that they started to notice the smell a week ago, but thought it could be due to cooking by other residents.
Based on preliminary investigations, the police do not suspect foul play and investigations are ongoing.
