Singapore ― The decomposed body of an elderly man was found at Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre after nearby stallholders detected a foul smell in the area.

A 69-year-old man reportedly died of natural causes at a warehouse unit on Saturday (Oct 9).

A nearby vegetable seller picked up a foul odour and initially thought it came from the dead mouse in the area.

He then discovered a foul-smelling liquid, reportedly from the corpse, dripping from the unit.

When the man returned hours later, and the issue wasn’t addressed, he informed the police.

The authorities arrived at the scene and found the man lying motionless on the ground, reported Chinese newspaper Shin Min Daily News.

The body was removed from the unit, and it was confirmed that he passed away of natural causes.

Shin Min Daily News said in an update on Thursday (Oct 14) that the warehouse unit was “old” and had rubbish scattered across the area.

Another wholesaler from a nearby unit shared that the deceased did not usually engage with him and mostly kept to himself.

He was also presumed to be frequently sick, as he walked slowly and had bandaged feet.

In a similar case on Oct 10, a man’s body, suspected to be an elderly cardboard collector, was found floating in the Rochor River.

The deceased was identified to be in his 60s and would often visit the area.

A bicycle with a purple basket that allegedly belonged to the man was found near the riverside.

Police investigations are ongoing, although authorities do not suspect foul play. /TISG
