Police have identified the body as that of a 42-year-old Chinese man. Later, as they were following a blood trail, police discovered the body of the man’s father, who is in his 70s, in a private home on 14J Hillside Drive. The latter was suspected to have been murdered at the house.
Police are looking for the driver of a silver Toyota Camry with car licence plate SGM 14J in connection with the two bodies found in Kovan on Wednesday evening. Anyone with information on the driver or the case may call 1800-255-0000.
According to a neighbour of the older victim, the vehicle belonged to him. They also suspect a connection between the younger victim and driver of the Toyota Camry. An eyewitness said that he saw a body being dragged from a car’s rear. He saw the car “dragging it for 10 to 20m” before it was “pushed” from the car near Kovan MRT station. He added that the man was “barely conscious” and his head was “full of blood”.
The eyewitness also said that there were many motorists honking and one went to check on the victim. Later, he covered the victim’s head with a white cloth. The incident caused a huge traffic jam in Kovan as the three lanes on the left were subsequently blocked by the police, who were also directing traffic.Neighbours were gathering at Hillside Drive to find out more about the case.
At Hillside Drive, one of the neighbours, a 73-year-old man who wanted to be known as Mr Liang, told Yahoo! Singapore that the deceased older man and his wife “were a nice couple”. He added that they had lived in the house for 10 years.

Like everyone, I was really shocked and wondered what’s going on. However, as I did more research, I found photos of these tweets being posted on EDMW forums:
Details are still not confirmed so I’m not sure how TRUE this is.
Will update more once I find out more information about what exactly is going on.
First spotted on EDMW forums and The Straits Times:

Officers from the Crime Investigation Department were on the scene on Wednesday evening, and a lane along Upper Serangoon Road was blocked off.
An eyewitness said that she saw a man being dragged by a car while she was driving. About 20 cars were honking loudly at the driver but he or she did not stop, said the eyewitness.
