Jason, a 23-year-old employee of the florist next door, told Shin Min that the deceased had been running the shop by himself.

He was quiet and seldom talked to his neighbours, but would sometimes acknowledge them by nodding.

25-year-old Gina, who works at a bubble milk tea shop nearby, said she last saw the man two days ago and nothing seemed amiss.

She expressed surprise at his sudden death as he didn’t look sick.

He would usually be seen sitting in a chair outside the shop. At night, he would sleep inside the shop, they said.

Though the deceased appeared to live a solitary life, he apparently had relatives.

Jason said after he was found dead, two women and a man were seen at the shop whom he believed were his relatives.

It’s understood that his relatives had found him lying motionless in the toilet of the shop when they visited, and notified the authorities.
