The man’s wife passed away from cancer two months ago, according to the man’s two next-door neighbours, Ms. Lalitha Sivalingam and Madam. Vathembal Kandasamy, who have lived there for 23 years. He also suffered a stroke ten years ago.

“They were quiet people who barely had visitors over,” said the neighbor.
