It was a sad Mothers’ Day for one mother living in Simei. Chinese newspaper Wanbao reported that a baby girl, who celebrated her one-year-old birthday just five days before, had died under mysterious circumstances with deep bruise marks around her neck. The family believes that the baby must have been strangled or suffocated to death.
The tragedy happened yesterday (8 May) at about 9.20 pm in a 6th floor unit in Block 225 Simei Street 4. The suspect in the death of the child is the family’s 30-year-old foreign domestic worker. The maid is from Indonesia and her name is Maryani Bte Usman Utar.
The maid was missing when the gruesome death of the baby was discovered, and had remained uncontactable since. Detectives from the Criminal Investigation Department arrested her this afternoon in the Marina Bay area.Follow us on Social Media
