In a shocking incident on Wednesday (15 Nov) afternoon, a 42-year-old Japanese woman’s lifeless body was discovered in a condominium unit at Waterbank at Dakota, according to Shin Min Daily News.
The deceased woman, who reportedly lived with her husband, resided in a unit along Dakota Crescent. This peaceful neighborhood, just a short distance from Old Airport Road Food Centre, became the unexpected site of this tragic discovery.
The Singapore Police Force was alerted to the incident at about 12.25pm on 15 November and officers found the woman lying motionless inside the unit, and she was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene by SCDF paramedics.
Contrary to initial suspicions, the police have not found any evidence of foul play. The investigation is in its early stages, and details about the circumstances leading to the woman’s demise are yet to be unveiled.
The police’s involvement was evident as multiple vehicles were parked inside the condominium, and officers were observed entering and exiting a 15th-floor unit. The atmosphere was tense as residents grappled with the reality of such an incident occurring in their community.
Discovering the Body
The woman’s body was found around noon, with investigators responding promptly. Witnesses reported a foul odor emanating from the unit when it was opened, raising questions about how such a situation could go unnoticed for an extended period.
Residents expressed shock, recounting the presence of a Japanese couple in the unit. The fact that no one was aware of the woman’s death for days adds a layer of perplexity to the situation.
Adding to the mystery is the unknown whereabouts of the woman’s husband. Speculations among residents only deepen the intrigue surrounding this unfortunate incident.
The police confirmed the case as an unnatural death and have thus far ruled out murder as investigations into her death continue. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) pronounced the woman dead at the scene.
