AMK double deaths: Mum's eyes and tongue found on the ground

New grisly details of the double deaths of a mother and daughter that occurred at Block 105, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 4 on Jun 4 have emerged.

The women were identified as 75-year-old Rosaline Lim and 51-year-old Andrea Tay in an earlier report.

Lim was found in a unit on the sixth storey with multiple stab wounds, while Tay was believed to have jumped down from the block. The latter's legs were severed from the impact.

An autopsy performed on Lim the following day (Jun 5) revealed that many of the stab wounds on her had been inflicted after she died.

Forensics also discovered that some of her body parts were missing, reports a Lianhe Wanbao article dated today.

They included both her eyes, her tongue and a right lung. The organs were suspected to have been cut off.

It is understood that no traces of bleeding were found on the area around Lim's eyes. Hence, it is most likely that they were dug out after her death.

When police rushed back to the crime scene, they found Lim's eyeballs and tongue on a grass patch near her block.

Investigators told the coroner that police have yet to recover Lim's missing right lung.

The coroner will deliver his findings tomorrow (Dec 3).
