A 70-year-old man was found dead earlier this morning (25 February), at the carpark of Golden Mile Complex, according to The Straits Times.
The Singapore Police Force said that they were alerted to the incident at about 9am, and when officers arrived, they found the man motionless on the ground.
He was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene by a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) paramedic, and the police have classified his death as a case of unnatural death.
They are also not suspecting any foul play.
An eyewitness spoke to ST and said that they saw at least 4 police vehicles at the scene, with a van from the criminal investigations unit also being spotted parked in front of the Golden Mile Complex building along Beach Road.
The deceased was described by the shopkeepers at the complex as having been ill for a while, and they shared that his legs were often seen to be swollen.
A woman working at a nearby Thai restaurant said that the man was often seen with a can of beer in his hand when he frequented the area of the mall.
The deceased was also spotted sleeping in the carpark, on a makeshift bed made out of what appears to be cardboard.
One of the shopkeepers who owns a telecommunications shop at Golden Mile, shared that he had previously advised the deceased to quit drinking and take care of his health.
He said that the deceased used to make ends meet by selling eggs and fruits that people bought from him to use a prayer offerings, and that he had previously lived in a public housing estate nearby.
At the time of writing, police investigations into his death are ongoing.
