SINGAPORE - Police investigating the discovery of a man's body in Gambas Avenue on Tuesday are treating the case as an unnatural death.
They received a call at 9.40am requesting assistance after the body of a man in his 60s was found on a grass patch towards Yishun Avenue 7.
He was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene.
Local residents whom The Straits Times spoke to were not aware that a body had been found, although some foreign workers at a nearby construction site had seen two police cars at the scene.
Last Thursday, the decapitated body of a woman was recovered from Whampoa
River after it was spotted by a jogger and cleaner.
The woman's arms were believed to have been mutilated.
No identification was found on her, and her head has yet to be found.
