Recently, Singapore has a series of bodies found.
Here is Simon Tay's Sound Advice:
Another suspicious case of death
1. Found in the rubbish chute with legs up head down
2. A friend of the deceased, Tng, speculated that he could have been trying to climb his way home through the rubbish chute in the early morning hours because he had left his keys and mobile phone in his house, reported The New Paper.
3. Others claimed that the couple does quarrel often while the wife claimed they are a happy couple.
Firstly, the body was found head first with legs sticking out meaning it's possible that the body was dropped in head first instead of him falling down by climbing up the chute.
Secondly, he left his keys & mobile phone in his house...give high chance of him IN THE HOUSE during the possible murder.
Third, who in the right mind will climb up the rubbish chute to go home which is on the 13th floor!?
Wife sleeping when police came......who can confirm?..it's possible she is very scared to even open the door when the police came....
So, now comes the possible actions the police can take.
1. Check if there's any finger prints at the bottom door of the chute and if it belongs to the decease.
2. Find out if the decease have been drinking, or have any chemicals that makes him unconscious
3. Ask if the wife can carry a load with the same weight as his deceased husband.
4. Check the house's rubbish chute if there's any other people finger prints...or lack of ANY prints...to see it had been wiped purposely as normally it's not cleaned after using.
5. Check the finance of the decease & wife to see if there's any weird discrepancies...
6. Identify possible motivation of murder if any.
7. If the possible murderer is/are more then one person...
8. Interview the children, especially from the wife's previous relationship.
Man found dead in rubbish chute had not been home
Man found under CTE flyover was murdered: Police
2 women found dead at Aloha Changi chalet
Here is Simon Tay's Sound Advice:
I got a suspicion about the death of the 2 women found at Changi Chalet...that it's not foul play however without much to go on other then the news article it's tough to determine if it's really foul play.
However, it's rather strange that it happened the way it did...so probably the police can investigate it further.
I find the fact that both women found at the toilet floor beside two containers that had ashes inside pretty weird.
That Changi Chalet have air-con rooms with air tight windows, if you want to commit suicide...why choose the toilet instead of the comfortable bed?
The doors & windows are locked when the police found them, however if this is a murder investigation...can someone lock them in before getting out of the chalet & lock the door? (hmm suspicion only no proof)
Now if I'm investigating the case, I will do the following
1. Find out if there are evidence of other chemicals in or near the deceased to cause fainting or loss of consciousness
2. Find out If there's a third party in the chalet at that time by looking at CCTV footage, mobile phone messages, social network, photograph taken.
3. Find out probable suicide key stuffs like suicide notes, mental illness, evidence of depression, family knowledge.
4. Who else have the key to the chalet and where is the key when they are found. Who have spare key?
5. What's the relationship between the two deceased? Is it against the family wishes?
6. What is the possible motivation if any to murder someone if this is a murder investigation...and fake suicide by using easily accessible items like bucket & charcoal & fire starter...as it's a chalet after all.
So, after much thinking...that's all I can think of if it's a murder investigation but more can be done.
Unidentified body found in Bedok Reservoir
Are there more murders in Singapore, and will Singapore classify them as suicides or call them unnatural deaths?
Will these murders be solved?
Will these murders be considered a serious crime statistic?
Only time will tell.
Perhaps the Police can hire Simon Tay as a consultant as he seems to have a sound investigation plan going.
