Decomposed body found in Pulau Ubin, eaten by lizard


A decomposing body of a man was found in Pulau Ubin, and was apparently being eaten by a lizard.

The unidentified man, believed to be in his 50s or 60s, was discovered at a deserted area of the island on Wednesday.

Odd-job worker Chua Tiam Seng, 49, was there that day with his friends to catch some crabs. The area is known to have abandoned shrimp ponds.

Mr Chua told Lianhe Wanbao that he noticed the body of a large man facing upwards on a pile of rocks near a campsite. The corpse was black and foul-smelling, he added.
