Couple found dead in budget hotel room
A couple was found dead in a budget hotel in Geylang yesterday (4 Mar).
The two bodies, belonging to a 22-year-old Bangladeshi construction worker and a 33-year-old Filipino maid, were found at about 11.30pm in their hotel room, when they failed to check out on time.
The two had checked into a room at Summer hotel, located at Geylang Lorong 22.
The woman was found lying face-up and fully naked on the bed while the man was found clad in a pair of briefs and lying in a pool of blood on the toilet floor.
Both had cuts on their throats and wrists, and a knife was found in the blood-splattered room.
The man is suspected to have cut the woman's throat and left her to bleed out, while he stabbed himself in the throat in the toilet.
It is believed the younger man and the older woman were having relationship problems at the time.
Both were pronounced dead by the police at 11.50pm last night.
The police have classified the case as an unnatural death and are investigating.
