Teacher with eating disorder dies in a fall

At 1.67m tall and weighing only 43kg, Ms Kelly Sng Wei Lan showed all the signs of an eating disorder. On March 4, 2011, the 36-year-old was found lying motionless on the floor of her bedroom by her father Sng Eng Chua, 66, in the family's bungalow in Bukit Timah.

At the inquiry into her death on Sept 16, State Coroner Imran Hamid said he agreed with the findings of investigation officer Mohammad Erwan Zakariya who had testified that the cause of the death was a head injury, consistent with that sustained in a fall where the back of the head slammed onto a hard surface like a floor.

There were medical records that revealed that Sng suffered bouts of giddiness and had fainted twice previously. On one occasion in August 2009, she suffered a head injury. Police also did not find any evidence to suggest foul play.

Ms Susana Balmediano Espina, 47, who has been the family's maid for the past 19 years, said that Sng, who is single, appeared normal the night before as she did in the past few days.

I remember she came out in the ST before when she opened her shop at Greenwood, sad
that she had so much going for her but her weight issues consumed her.
