Headless body of a woman found at Whampoa River

I must say though, Straits Times news has to improve in providing details – using the general words / description like “man”, “woman” and all the lack of details is really frustrating news to read or even hear!


The body of a woman was found in Whampoa River near Blk 110 McNair Road on Thursday morning just after sunrise.

The police said they received a call about the body at 7.33am. Paramedics from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) also responded to the case a few minutes later at the canal between McNair and St George’s roads.

SCDF rescuers then manually retrieved the body from about 2 metres from the river bank and pronounced the woman dead at 8.28am.

The Straits Times understands that the woman, who was believed to be topless and only wearing a pair of black pants, was decapitated. SCDF divers were spotted conducting a search in the canal at low tide later in the morning.
