In response to queries from MS News, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) said they were alerted to a case of unnatural death in 5 Mandai Link at about 11.35am.

“A 30-year-old man was found lying motionless inside a container and was pronounced dead at the scene by an SCDF (Singapore Civil Defence Force) paramedic,” it added.

Foul play is not suspected, based on police preliminary investigations, which are ongoing.

Deceased was an employee of alcoholic products business

A worker from an adjacent unit told Shin Min that they didn’t smell anything untoward the past few days, so they were shocked to know that someone had died.

The deceased was an employee of a business that sold alcoholic products that was operated by a middle-aged couple, the worker said.

While the company had been around for three or four years, the man had worked there for about a year.

However, it was understood that he had been unable to contact his employee for days.

When he finally opened the container, he was shocked to see the man’s body inside.
