Residents had told local security of a disconcerting smell, believed to be coming from within a flat in Woodland Court, Parkvale Village around 3.00pm last Friday.
Police and firefighters promptly arrived at the scene. Upon breaking into the unit in question, a woman was found lying dead on the floor, according to a report by Apple Daily.
It is believed that she may have been dead for quite some time. No further details have been provided. Authorities have made attempts to contact the woman’s family and friends to assist in the ongoing investigation.
Bay Media received unconfirmed news that the woman was 77 years old, and was found inside an apartment on the 5th floor. Contacting local police yielded no new information, pending a coroner’s report.
