The day of crime in Singapore started with a robbery in the heartlands. Witnesses saw the burglar climb out of the window facing the common corridor. The burglar was described as on the plump side, wearing brown shorts, a pale blue polo shirt and slippers. I heard this news in the car and turned to look at the driver who was wearing a pair of brown shorts, a pale blue polo shirt and slippers. I wondered silently to myself, where was Packrat
at 10.35 am this morning while I was at the spa? Did he have an alibi?
From petty crime we move on to a traffic pile up in the city. A car, a motorbike and a pedestrian were involved in an accident along the narrowest lanes of the city causing a tail back that took an hour to clear. Who was the imbecile that caused all that delay? The pedestrian who jaywalked, the bike that swerved or the car that was driving too fast to avoid the jaywalking pedestrian who was trying to get out of the way of the speeding bike?
Later on in the day, many tourists who thought Singapore was crime free were treated to a gruesome and gory discovery
right in the middle of the city where the shopping belt lay. There was police tape all around and white sheets that were used to cover dead people on the ground. There was a woma's head in a bag and some arms and legs a little ways up in another bag. Was it there to make a statement? No one goes shopping carrying a head and some arms and legs in their back pack only to have the back pack spring a leak and create a Hansel and Gretel trail that would rival the macabre of the Brothers Grimm. Could it be a crime of passion? Unlikely since the parts were in the open for all to see. Most who kill in a sudden moment of spontaneity tend to try to hide what they've done. This was far too obvious. Was it copycat of the body parts murder
sometime ago? Possibly. Seeing that we have the torso found in a different part of Singapore.
Rumour in the evening. Notable public figure whose been in the news much has CID detectives swarming his house. Could they be related?Did the woman come from this VIP's house? Did the burglar do it? Was the murderer trying to get away when he got into an accident in the middle of Orchard Road? Who was the woman? How was it no one discovered she was missing?
Headway must be made.

Well, if you ask Boko, he'll tell you of the other traffic pile-up in which a lorry T-boned a bus.

Woman, you are funny. And also watch too much CSI.
