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.

Earlier, a man in his 70s was found dead inside house 14 J, Hillside Drive.

The body of another man, in his 40s, was found about 1km away near the Kovan MRT station.

They are believed to be father and son.

An eyewitness said she saw a man being dragged by a car while she was driving along Upper Serangoon Road. About 20 cars were honking loudly at the driver but he or she did not stop, said the eyewitness

The two are suspected to have been murdered. A blood trail could be seen between the two locations.

Officers from the Criminal Investigation Department are still at the Hillside Drive residential area, which has cordoned off.

Officers and a police forensic team are also at the MRT station.

Two lanes of Upper Serangoon Road, measuring about 50m, have been cordoned off for investigations.

Notice that the car plate number and the house unit number are the same?

The car might belong to the victims. That would make it harder to accost the suspect, unless he/she is known to the family.

According to The Straits Times (physical copy), the car belongs to the father.

If the murderer was alone, must be quite strong to be able to overcome two men, albeit a bit elderly.

It's really very gruesome to drag the body along the road!

We were stuck in the jam from Potong Pasir to Kovan for close to 2 hours last evening. It is usually a 5-10 mins drive depending on traffic.

We thought there was a traffic situation and didn't realise it was so serious. After one hour in the jam, I saw on FB about a murder at Kovan but couldn't relate it to the jam. Past the viaduct, then did we realised that 2 lanes were being blocked by the police and nearer to kovan, we saw trail of blood on the last lane and then followed by the tent. The police were still doing investigation and that was already 9plus.

It was shocking for us. Frankly we wondered why one would want to plot such a "high profile" murder case? As in reading those news, the younger man was dragged for 1km from hillside drive till kovan mrt. 20plus cars were honking at the driver to stop.

dh was reluctant to drive past that stretch of the road this morning. It's just :yikes: to learn what happened the day before.

I can sympathise with your dh. Just thinking about a 1km long trail of blood and what that means the car is doing to the poor guy trapped beneath is enough to make anyone sick :sick: .

I don't think the killer "planned" it to happen that way at all. Certainly not with such a audacious public display of brutality.
