When a cleaner aunty at Bras Basah Complex saw a locked cubicle in the women’s toilet on the 4th floor yesterday evening and received no response despite knocking on the door repeatedly, she sensed that something was wrong.
Peeking through the gap between the cubicle door and the floor, she saw what looked like a woman in a skirt sitting on the floor.
The cleaner aunty rushed to get help from a manager of a store in the building, and they got one hell of a shock when they eventually forced open the door.
Before their eyes was a young woman with a rope strung around her neck.
The other end of the rope was tied to a metal support bar in the cubicle.
There was blood flowing from the woman’s nose and traces of blood on her shoulder.
That woman has been identified as 19-year-old Megan Goh Xin Yi.
She had been working as an intern at a design firm at Bras Basah Complex.
It appears that Megan had committed suicide.
Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.
Police have classified the incident as a case of unnatural death and investigations are in progress.
