70-year-old man's decomposed body found in Holland Close flat

The decomposed body of a 70-year-old man was found in a flat at Block 1 Holland Close on Feb 20.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the unnatural death at around 9.40pm.

The elderly man was found lying motionless in the residential unit and pronounced dead at the scene.

Based on preliminary investigations, the police do not suspect foul play.

It is understood that the man lived alone and did not have family members visiting him.

Neighbours told Shin Min Daily News that the man had fallen and been hospitalised three times before.

A housewife who lives opposite the man's unit said he last suffered a fall a few days before the Lunar New Year, adding: "I saw him bleeding and being taken to hospital on a stretcher."

She also described the man as a friendly neighbour and said: "Only when police came then did we learn that he had died in the flat, it's really pitiful."

Police investigations are ongoing.
