Man found dead in Bishan flat
UPDATE: The 25-year-old man who was arrested will be charged in court on Monday (Sept 26) with murder.
A 61-year-old man was found dead in his Bishan Street 11 HDB flat on Saturday night (Sept 24).
A 25-year-old man, believed to be his son, was arrested in connection with the case, which police have classified as unnatural death. Investigations are ongoing.
A spokesman told The New Paper on Sunday they received a call at about 8.20pm.
When officers arrived at the flat at Block 152B, they found the man lying motionless. A paramedic pronounced him dead at the scene. He was believed to be found in the living room of his fifth-storey flat.
TNPS also understands that several neighbours had called the police complaining about noise coming from the flat a short time before this.
Neighbours on the sixth and fourth storeys, however, told TNPS they did not hear any noise.
The family of the dead man declined to comment.
