Singapore schoolboy arrested over axe murder of 13-year-old

Singapore police have captured a 16-year-old student of River Valley High School for associated murder with an individual understudy and have held onto a hatchet as proof.

The Secondary Four student will be remanded for mental appraisal and be accused on Tuesday of homicide, police said.

The person in question, a 13-year-old Secondary One understudy, was found with various cut injuries in the school’s latrine at about 11:40am, as per The Straits Times paper. He was articulated dead at the scene by a paramedic.

Police said the two understudies didn’t have the foggiest idea about one another, as per starter examinations.

A lockdown of the school was apparently set up toward the beginning of today and educators and understudies were requested to stay in their study halls. They were delivered solely after 3pm, a media report said.

A parent, Jacky Huang, 43, said he hurried to the school in the wake of getting a message from his little girl that there was somebody using a hatchet in the school.

He showed instant messages and a video sent by his girl showing schoolchildren running from the crime location.

Waterway Valley High School, in the Boon Lay region in Jurong West, is an auxiliary school with students matured 12 to 18 who sit for the A-level assessments.
