SINGAPORE - The decomposed bodies of two men were found in a unit at The Bayshore condominium Wednesday morning, after neighbours complained of a foul smell.

The bodies of a 61-year-old man and a 40-year old man, believed to be father and son, were found on a sofa in the living room.

A maid living in the condominium near East Coast Park told Chinese evening daily Shin Min Daily News that there had been a stench for the past week. "Even though the windows were closed, the smell remained in the air," she said. Unable to tolerate the smell any more, neighbours complained to the condominium management, who called the police and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF).

The SCDF confirmed that they sent a Red Rhino vehicle and an ambulance after receiving a call for help at a building along Bayshore Road. A police spokesman said: "On arrival, two men were found motionless. They were pronounced dead by paramedics on scene." The police have classified the deaths as unnatural and are investigating.
