Young woman struggling to pay medical bills falls to death

A dead woman was found sprawled on the road of the Duta Impian Apartment in Jalan Abdullah Tahir at about 7.15am last Wednesday.

She has been identified as Ng Xiao Shean, 24, who works as a waitress in an entertainment centre.

Preliminary investigation showed no evidence of foul play and the cause of her death as serious head injuries sustained from a fall.

A video review of the building’s security CCTV system failed to provide clues as to where the deceased had fallen from.

The police are still investigating.

A close relative who refused to be named said the deceased may have had financial difficulties from paying for her medical bills due to her chronic gastritis problem.

The body has been sent to Hospital Sultan Aminah for a post-mortem.
