According to 8world News on Monday (20 Mar), Tan Lay Khim, the older sister of the female victim, shared new developments in the couple’s case.

However, the workers found signs on the motorcycle’s rear suggesting it was hit from the back — likely by another vehicle.

The rear collision is believed to have caused the motorcycle to lose balance and crash.

The latest findings corroborate what an eyewitness recounted: a silver car reportedly collided with the bike from the back.
