According to a report by AsiaOneNa’s body was located at approximately 11:15 a.m. on April 26. Preliminary examinations by police have not raised any immediate suspicion of foul play, but investigations continue to unravel the details surrounding her death.

According to the Singapore media. MothershipNa had traveled to the city-state just a week earlier to pursue job opportunities and provide support to her family in Vietnam.

Originally from a modest village in Vietnam, Na was a single mother of an 11-year-old daughter and the sole breadwinner for her elderly parents, who are in their 70s. She had been dealing with lung problems, but she sought employment at a nightlife venue in Singapore, motivated by the need to support her daughter and her elderly parents.

Roland Tay, an undertaker, told Shin Min Daily News that the process of sending Na’s remains back to Vietnam had begun free of charge as a gesture to help his family cope with this difficult period.

A relative of Na landed in Singapore on April 29 to assist in repatriation efforts.
