Dear A.S.S. Editor

Police were alerted this morning to a dead body that was found in the Singapore River. Apparently, a cleaner saw the dead body, and police were alerted at 8am. The SCDF had confirmed that their officers retrieved the body of a Chinese man in his 60s.

Police were also seen questioning two boatmen. No further details of the case was revealed. Was this a suicide, of a man who cannot handle the stress of living in Singapore, even though he is already in his 60s? Or was it something else. Police investigations are ongoing, and let’s hope they will announce the findings of their investigations soon.

This is definitely not the first time a dead body was found in the river, and unfortunately, this would definitely not be the last. Sad fact of life here.
