Body of Singaporean found abroad with 30 stab wounds

In April 2024, the body of a 39-year-old Singaporean woman with 30 stab wounds was found in Spain.

The suspect, Singaporean Mitchell Ong, 43, was arrested and appeared in court on April 19.


Spanish police have been investigating the case, exploring a possible “economic motive” for his death.

It was previously reported that the victim, Ms Audrey Fang Di Rou, had purchased two AIA investment-linked policies from Ong in August 2015.

Just yesterday, it was reported that investigators found a note on her iPad indicating that Ms Fang had decided to nominate an unknown person for her Central Provident Fund (CPF).

According to a Spanish media. The truththe note said: “I want to declare that my decision to name you in my CPF is because you are a long-time friend and my trusted confidant.”

Ms. Fang’s family also noted that they were not aware of the change in the CPF nomination.


The case is still being investigated.
