Body found at Lower Peirce Reservoir

On early Sunday morning, June 17, the body of a man was found floating in the Lower Peirce Reservoir. Around 6:45am, a jogger, only identified as “Raymond” passed by the area in the water where the body was.

He initially ignored it, believing it to be just a bag of trash, but a woman nearby told him that it was actually a body. Upon closer inspection, he realized that she was right, and could clearly see a man head emerging from the water.

The woman later called both the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and the police, who arrived by 7:20am.

The jogger described the body as being far out in the water, and therefore hard to reach. He offered to guide the police to the human remains.

Raymond, who regularly jogs at Lower Peirce Reservoir, says that the area is not well lit at night and early mornings, and said that he thinks the man may have fallen into the water, and then panicked, and then possibly gotten stuck in the mud as he attempted to get out of the water.

The police have said that investigations concerning the man’s death are ongoing and that it was now categorised as an unnatural death. Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene.Follow us on Social Media
