2 bodies found in Bedok Reservoir

The bodies of a dead woman and a young boy were found floating in Bedok Reservoir Thursday morning.

They are believed to be Tan Sze Sze, 32, and her three-year-old son Jerald Chin Le Hui, who were last seen on Tuesday morning at Clementi, where Madam Tan's mother works.

 According to a local news broadcaster, both were wearing red tops, the same clothes they were wearing when they went missing.

 Police said they received a call at around 7am today. The pair were pronounced dead about 10 minutes later.

The Straits Times understands that when Public Utilities Board officers found the two, Madam Tan had been hugging her son.

The case has been classified as unnatural death and police are investigating.

 This is the second time dead bodies were found in Bedok Reservoir this year - a decomposed partial body was found in June.

Police managed to identify the lower torso as belonging to a 23-year-old Chinese national named Lin Xiao, who had disappeared on May 18.
