An eyewitness, Elsie Soh, told The Straits Times that her husband saw some police officers investigating on the same while he was passing by the area at 7:20 a.m.

The news website also reported that a tent, used to cover dead bodies, was placed across the canal from Sengkang Riverside Park, covering the cycling and jogging track near Sengkang Sports Centre. A police cordon was set up, covering about 300m.
