SINGAPORE - A female corpse abandoned in a rooftop tank of a Woodlands HDB block may have tainted the drinking water of 700 residents.
The dead body was discovered on Monday morning at approximately 10am on the rooftop of Block 686B, Woodlands Street 73.
A local news source said blood stains were found in the water tank.
Chinese newspaper Lianhe Wanbao reported that the deceased was an Indonesian female working in Singapore as a maid.
Her identity is unknown. She was wearing a t-shirt and bermudas when her body was found.
168 households may have had their drinking water supply affected by the corpse, according to the Chinese newspaper.
The case has been classified as murder by the police. A local news source said the deceased was 30-years-old and that a 27-year-old Bangladeshi man has been arrested in connection with the case.
Morning quarrel
Lianhe Wanbao also reported that residents witnessed a man and woman arguing with each other on Monday morning.
The man looked like a foreigner and was choking the woman.
Residents also said that there were blood stains inside one of the lifts and at the lift landing, according to the Chinese newspaper.
White bubbles in water
A 43-year-old home-maker, Mrs Goh, said that she saw white bubbles when bathing her children. Her son could be affected by the water as he had sensitive skin, she said.
A doctor interviewed by Lianhe Wanbao said that any tainted water drank by residents could result in stomach discomfort.
Symptoms mirrored those of food poisoning, the Chinese newspaper reported the doctor as saying. However, boiling water before consumption would be sufficient to kill germs inside.
Another doctor said that the water tank's size would dictate how much bacteria were present in the water.
