Tragic end for missing man

Tragic end for missing man

SINGAPORE- His hands bound, his T-shirt pulled up to his neck and his body abandoned in a dark, desolate corner of Lim Chu Kang, away from prying eyes.

This was the sad end for Mr Dexmon Chua Yizhi, a 37-year-old production technician.

For days, friends had prayed for his safe return when he failed to go home after going out for a meal on Saturday evening at Cheong Chin Nam Road, in Bukit Timah.

Concerned for his safety, his brother-in-law, Mr David Goh, put up an appeal on his Facebook page. Friends filled it with words of prayer.

But yesterday, Mr Chua's suspected killer led police to the site where his body was hidden.

His body was found in a military training area near Sungei Gedong Camp, hidden in thick and tall grass next to a gravel-covered dirt track about 150 metres from the road.

His alleged killer: A 53-year-old man.


The police said Mr Chua was reported missing on Sunday when he did not return home the previous day.

He was last seen at Cheong Chin Nam Road at 9.44pm.

On Monday, police issued an appeal for information on his whereabouts.

But there was still no sign of him and his family grew increasingly worried, taking their appeal online.
