Witnesses

When MustShareNews got down to the scene, a blue tent could be seen covering the body, and gloved police officers were at the scene.

Resident Ng Ya Kam, 64, who lives in nearby Block 38D, told us that she caught a glimpse as a police officer opened the tent, and saw that the dead woman was wearing a red dress.

Another resident, Madam Wong, 62, who lives in Block 39A — where the dead woman lives, said she heard a loud sound, and thought someone had thrown rubbish out of the windows.

They guessed that the woman was around her 30s.
