If you have been keeping up with the news lately, you would have known about the 95-year-old lady who was murdered by a 34-year-old female suspect in her private home along Recreation Road on 6 July.
But to provide a brief summary, the police were alerted to a “case of stabbing” that day and found the 95-year-old, Madam Ang Pek Chai, lying motionless on the ground on her back.
It was later discovered that she had passed away.
Burmese domestic helper Sandar Htoo has since been arrested and charged with murder after appearing in court via a video-link on 8 July.
More information has been released since then and it seems that Sandar Htoo, had stabbed the victim when she was asleep.
Maid Who Killed 95YO Lady Had Allegedly Stabbed Victim When She’s Asleep & Left a Letter After That
After committing the alleged murder, the accused apparently wrote a letter confessing to the crime and left it behind before fleeing from the scene in panic.
She was probably filled with guilt because she subsequently went to a police station to surrender herself.
A member of the public recounted that the accused was seen returning to the crime scene with investigators.
The Scene Of The Murder
When reporters arrived at the scene at 6pm on 6 July, four police cars were parked on the roadside.
The iron gate of the private house was pulled open and there was a blockade in place.
A group of men and women who were believed to be the family members of Madam Ang were seen near the house with anxious faces as they watched the group of police officers investigate the crime scene.
Neighbours who declined to be named said that they didn’t think anything was amiss because they didn’t hear any suspicious sounds.
Furthermore, they didn’t expect the accused to do such a thing as she always seemed friendly when she came out of the house to dispose of rubbish.
It was only when they saw police cars that they learned of the fatal case that happened in their estate.
The accused has been remanded at the Central Police Division and she will return back to court on 15 July.
We offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased and urge the public not to speculate on what actually happened so that we give the family the privacy they deserve.
