About Kovan Murder case

It was a shocking view: a man with his face down was being dragged underneath a silver Toyota Camry. All the cars around honked for the car driver to stop but he or she did not. The body, who's belt appeared to be struck to the car, was dislodged outside Kovan MRT Station. The Toyota Camry then drove away.

What the eye witnesses saw there was only the half of the shocking Kovan murder. Police followed the long blood trail backwards to a terrace house in Hillside Drive and found the body of a 70 years old man. Two men were father and son and the Toyota Camry (licence plate SGM 14J) belonged to the father. The body of the younger man in his 40s was dragged 1 kilometer from the house to the Kovan MRT Station.

At Hillside Drive, one of the neighbours told Yahoo! Singapore that the deceased older man and his wife lived there for 10 years and were a nice couple. The couples son did not live with them.

In the night at around 2 am, the body of Kovan murder victim was removed by police from the house. In the morning at 08:15 am family members and friends of two suspected Kovan murder victims arrived at the mortuary to identify their bodies.
