SINGAPORE — The police are investigating two related unnatural deaths after a woman was found motionless at the void deck of a public housing block in Tampines on Wednesday (Feb 10).

A man, who is believed to be the assailant and known to the woman, was later found motionless at the foot of a public housing block in Punggol where he lived.

Both were unconscious when separately taken to hospital. They later died.

The police said in a statement that they were alerted to a stabbing incident at Block 206 Tampines Street 21 around 6.30am on Wednesday.

When officers arrived, they found the 42-year-old woman, who had slash wounds on her neck.

At about 9.10am, the 45-year-old man was found at the foot of Block 205A Punggol Field.

An image of an official document and a photo of the woman have been making their rounds online and on messaging platforms.
