Around 2 weeks before 18 year-old Denyse Tan fell 7 stories to her death at the foot of her HDB block, her father recalled Denyse telling him that she could see a monster and hear children crying her room.
When her father noticed that Denyse also appeared groggy, he asked her if she was on drugs. When she replied no, he believed her.
A coroner’s inquiry into her death yesterday confirmed that she was on drugs, with State Coroner Marvin Bay saying that methamphetamine, better known as Ice, was detected in her blood.
Recording a verdict of misadventure, he found that her fall had occurred “in the wake of a likely drug-induced psychotic or delusional episode”.
