"A man's body was found floating in Bedok Reservoir on Sunday morning. In the evening, at around 6.30 pm, I saw policemen surrounding a body bag.
"The latest victim did not drown because the body was located near a bench along the jogging path, on top of a slope away from the water's edge.
"It cannot be the same body found in the morning because the body would have been removed soon after it was discovered, and not 12 hours later."
