14J keeps appearing in double-death case
WHY does "14J" figure so much in the Kovan double deaths?
That was a question on many people's minds, as more details of the Wednesday afternoon incident, which police have classified as murder, came to light.
The blood-stained car in the case had 14J in its licence plate. The corner terrace house where one of the suspected-murder victims was found has 14J as its unit number.
Other cars with 14J in their licence plates were spotted near the house after the incident.
On Wednesday, a resident in the area said he heard shouts and moans from the 14J Hillside Drive corner terrace unit, before a 42-year-old man drenched in blood was seen staggering out.
He collapsed near the house gate. Minutes later, he was run over by a car that reversed from the home, The Straits Times reported online yesterday.
The man was later found dead about 1km away from the terrace at a taxi stand outside Kovan MRT station.
He had been dragged face down by a silver Toyota Camry with the licence plate SGM 14J, leaving a blood trail, The New Paper said.
The man was the son of Mr Tan Boon Sin, who was found dead in the terrace home, The Straits Times said. The older man, 67, owned a car business in the Eunos area.
The Toyota Camry, said to belong to him, was found abandoned yesterday morning in Eunos Avenue 7. The vehicle had blood stains on areas such as the right headlight and the rear.
Two other cars with 14J in their licence plate were seen near the 14J Hillside Drive home as a police investigation was under way, noted Shin Min Daily News.
Yesterday morning, people who knew the murder victims arrived at the mortuary in a car with 14J in its licence plate, said The Straits Times. The police are still investigating the case.
