An 18-year-old girl fell to her death in Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6 on Saturday evening.
Krystal Aki Mizoguchi, who was half Japanese, was found dead at the foot of her block at about 7.40pm at Blk 509, Ang Mo Kio Ave 6, reported Shin Min Daily News.
She is said to have fallen from her flat on the ninth floor and according to the Chinese daily, is believed to have committed suicide due to relationship problems.
Two suicide notes were reportedly discovered. Krystal, who was to turn 19 next month, was waiting to begin classes at a private university after finishing a five-month stint as a temporary clerk at the Ministry of Education.
According to her blog, the Yishun Junior College student grew up in a single-parent family and has been living with her 17-year-old brother for three years in her current three-room flat. Her parents are believed to be separated.
Krystal is also known to have begun dating from 13 years old and since then neglected her studies. A scan of her Facebook page revealed several cheerful photos of herself in what seemed to be a usual teenager's life.
But the last entry on her blog, dated March 5 earlier this year and which was entitled "Crash and Burn", spoke of her broken dreams after poor A-Level exam results.

She wrote, "PSLE, I xxxx-ed up. Couldn't get into dream secondary school."
"'O' Levels, I xxxx-ed up. Couldn't get a place in dream polytechnic course."
"Ended up transferring to YJC. I got my dreams crushed again, after seeing my 'A' Levels grades yesterday."
"Bye bye to NUS FASS and NTU Humanities".
