He would have killed everyone

He had stabbed a man to death in public, but felt no remorse.

After all, the Taoist deity Jade Emperor he "consulted" had given him the go-ahead, Fang Gao San told a psychiatrist after his arrest.

In fact, if he had a gun, he would have killed everyone at the Singapore Pools headquarters because they were all cheats, Fang, who has a history of schizophrenia, said.

And he would kill again if he got permission from the Jade Emperor a second time.

These were just some of the chilling details that emerged in court yesterday as Fang pleaded guilty to killing a part-time Toto announcer outside the Singapore Pools HQ at PoMo on Selegie Road in 2010.

Justice Woo Bih Li sentenced the 56-year-old to life imprisonment for culpable homicide.

Fang, who suffered from persecutory delusions because he often refused to take his medicine for his paranoid schizophrenia, claimed he won the fourth prize in a Singapore Pools Toto draw some time in 2010.

But he was unhappy because he received only $479 since there were more than 900 winners for the same prize.

However, it later emerged that Singapore Pools did not have any records of Fang winning any prizes in 2010.
