I was on a bus rushing to meet an overseas friend when I saw this banner outside Orchard Road Presbyterian Church. I absolutely have to go near to take a shot. :P
God has a Facebook! Cool, huh!?
If God has a Facebook, would you poke him? :P
A gruesome murder happened within this Orchard Road Presbyterian Church. It was popularly known as the "Curry Murder".
Mr Ayakannu Marithamuthu, a father of three who worked as a live-in caretaker of holiday chalets in Changi, was murdered on 12 December 1984 at this Orchard Road Presbyterian Church. His body was then chopped up into pieces and cooked into a curry in a large aluminum pot. The cooked parts were later packed in different plastic bags and disposed all over the island to allay suspicions.
Initially, Ayakannu's wife and her brothers were charged in 1987 with murder. They were hovering near Death because they could be hanged for murder. However, as there was insufficient evidence against them, they were acquitted of their charges the same year.
Apart from what investigations revealed, the prosecution was unable to prove that it was indeed the family members who caused Ayakannu's death. The cooking pot in which Ayakannu's body parts were allegedly cooked could not be found,leaving no traces of the savage act.
Not many churches have a murder story in their history though. :)
