A 19 year-old Singaporean teenage girl was found dead at the bottom of her Toa Payoh HDB block on Monday at about 5AM.
The teen had allegedly committed suicide after a meeting with her ex-boyfriend, with whom she had just had bad break up.
The incident happened at Block 225, Lorong 8 Toa Payoh. Residents reported hearing a loud crash, followed by screams in the wee hours of the morning.
The teen’s former boyfriend had been the one to inform the teen’s parents, who were already at work at their stall in Ang Mo Kio. The boyfriend had allegedly apologized profusely and wept.
The father of the teen says that he and his wife had initially objected to their daughter’s relationship because they felt that she was too young, but she had insisted on going ahead with the relationship. They did not expect the relationship to end so tragically.
