It was alleged that Tan entered Mr. Lim’s apartment at Serangpoon Avenue on February 15 at 7:00 a.m. when the maid opened the door to send the victim’s daughter to school.

They immediately contacted Interpol for help to nab the alleged murderer.

According to a reliable source, the suspect who is also a Triad member had business transactions with the victim for many years. It was alleged the victim had cheated Tan, and that Tan might have killed him cold-bloodedly because of this.
