70-Year-Old Elderly Woman Who Lived Alone Found Dead In Bedok Flat

With an ageing population, more elderly folk in Singapore are living alone, sometimes without anyone to check on them.

That sadly could have been the case for a 70-year-old woman who was recently found dead in her flat in Bedok.

Deceased was quiet & rarely interacted with neighbours

According to nearby resident Mr Man (name transliterated from Mandarin), the deceased was slim and quiet. Due to her quiet nature, he thus claimed that she rarely interacted with neighbours.

In addition, Mr Man shared that she used to live in the house with her mother. After the latter’s passing, the deceased continued living there alone.

Sadly, throughout her time there, nobody had seen friends or relatives visiting her.

Elderly woman may have been dead for days in Bedok flat

Since the elderly woman’s body was only found after neighbours detected a foul smell and called the police, Mr Man believed that she may have passed away many days prior.

Police don’t suspect foul play

The police confirmed to Shin Min that they received an alert regarding the death.


Based on preliminary investigations, they do not suspect foul play. Investigations are currently ongoing.

Just over a week ago, a 70-year-old man was found dead in his Bukit Merah flat.

MS News extends our sincere condolences to the deceased’s loved ones. May she rest in peace.
