Police in Ho Chi Minh City have launched a probe into the death of a Singaporean woman in a high-end apartment on Thursday. 

The management board of The Goldview, a luxury condo building located on Ben Van Don Street in District 4, reported the case to local police on Thursday afternoon.

At 3:15 pm the same day, the board received a report from the owner of the apartment about the body of a Singaporean woman who was found inside a condo in Tower A of the complex. 

District police rushed to the building to investigate the scene and collect evidence.

An initial investigation revealed that the owner had not rented out the apartment, and the last recorded use of the unit's elevator access card was at 10:20 pm on January 31, 2024.

The deceased was not a resident of the building and was last seen on January 31, 2024, Nguoi Lao Dong (Laborer) newspaper reported.

Local investigators are coordinating with the municipal police department to identify the personal details of the deceased and investigate the cause of the death.

A similar case was recorded in Hanoi in late April when the body of a Vietnamese woman was found in a high-end residential building in Nam Tu Liem District.

Locals said that the apartment had been locked for years and that the woman once lived there for two years. 

The corpse had likely been in the apartment for at least a year before it was discovered, according to local authorities.
