2018 Murder[edit]

A woman was found dead at the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) College Central campus carpark on 19 July 2018.

The police said they were alerted to an incident at 7.40pm involving a man who allegedly stabbed a 56-year-old woman in the school's carpark. The case was classified as murder. The victim is Low Hwee Geok. She was the director of ITE's examinations division. The suspect is her former husband. Ms Low was found lying motionless at the scene and was pronounced dead by Singapore Civil Defence Force paramedics.

A 66-year-old male suspect was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital. It is understood that the suspect stabbed himself.
