Tan Pei Lee ... said to be unhappy at work & thus killed herself??

The caption: Ms Tan Pei Lee, 25, took her own life as she was unhappy at work and did not want to burden her army officer husband. She was found drowned in Lower Seletar Reservoir on the morning of Aug 17 last year by a passer-by.

C'mon. How many of you really believe that it's possible for someone to kill herself as she was unhappy at work?!

I mean, let's not talk about the bloody unique phenomenon called, Foxconn suicide scandal, shall we?

This case I'm blogging now is about a 25-year-old lady who drowned herself in Lower Seletar Reservoir. She was reported to walk out on her family to marry her boyfriend--of whom the family did not approve. She had since been with him for 1 1/2 years before the tragedy.

What I find it suspicious is about the so-called suicide note of her: utilizing a laptop Ms Tan Pei Lee allegedly left a message telling her husband that she should not be in this world to make him angry any longer. Reported as well that she also apologised for making his life miserable in a text message to his cell phone at 5.30am.

The questions which many might have raised--not to imply anything sinister, mind you! (I'm a strong believer of 'innocent till proven guilty'):
1. Anyone could have written the message on the laptop. Was it truly her?

2. There's an 'evidence' in form of a text message from her to the husband. Was her handphone found along with the body?

3. It is said that she had complained about her job at an arts school and that her employer was unhappy with her performance. Has this been verified with the school and the employer? Even if it's true that she did poorly, would that be a sufficient trigger for her to end her life?

4. Why were there no suicide notes to her family? Granted she had walked out from them before. But one can expect in this critical junction of her life, she'd be leaving some Final letters for her family.

She's only 25...

She has much to live!

Rest in peace now.

THE family of administrative assistant Tan Pei Lee voiced suspicions she killed herself because of emotional abuse from her husband but a coroner inquiry on Monday found this to be groundless. State coroner Victor Yeo said there was no evidence of any spousal abuse and advised the next-of-kin that the purpose of a coroner inquiry was 'fact-finding and not fault-finding'.

The court's findings indicate Ms Tan, 25, took her own life as she was unhappy at work and did not want to burden her army officer husband. She was found drowned in Lower Seletar Reservoir on the morning of Aug 17 last year by a passer-by.

Investigations then revealed that Ms Tan, who cannot swim, had been married for about 11/2 years. She had walked out on her own family in 2008 as they did not approve of her boyfriend. She later married him without their knowledge.

Her husband last saw her alive at 11.45pm on Aug 15. She had complained about her job at an arts school and that her employer was unhappy with her performance. He woke up at 5.50am the next day to find her missing.

On the screen of a laptop in the bedroom, she left a message telling him that she should not be in this world to make him angry any longer. She also apologised for making his life miserable in a text message to his cell phone at 5.30am. She had added that by the time he read the message, she would be gone for good.

Police found no injuries on her and do not suspect foul play. There was also no indication of marital problems.

From Straits Times, "No evidence drowned woman was abused".
