3. The Singapore Police Force (SPF) also commenced investigations into Justinโ€™s death following his fall from height on 16 September 2021. An autopsy was conducted and the cause of death was determined to be multiple injuries consistent with being sustained from a fall from height. Toxicology were conducted and the report indicated that there were traces of LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), a Class A controlled drug listed under the Misuse of Act, and Nitrazepam detected in his urine and blood. These results and findings will be submitted at the Coronerโ€™s Inquiry.

Further, as he could not locate his eczema medication, Ms Cecilia Ow was also present when he was looking for his eczema medication in his room with the help of CNB officers.

10. Justin was subsequently transferred to the Central Police Divisional Headquarters and was referred to a lock-up medical doctor for examination on 4 February 2021. The subsequent medical report issued noted that Justin had a slight abrasion over his left foot and a past history of eczema. The medical report concluded that Justin was well and that โ€œthe physical examination was unremarkableโ€. When Justin was released from the lock-up, he signed to acknowledge that he had no complaints. Justin was not mistreated in any way.

For security reasons, arrested persons are also not permitted to retain their personal belongings (including mobile devices) when they are admitted into the lock-up. This is to prevent unauthorised communication with others that may jeopardise the investigation, escape by the arrested subject, or injury to self or others.

In this case, Justin was arrested on 3 February 2021 at about 7.25 pm, and following the initial investigation, he was escorted for a house search that took place from about 9.02 pm to about 9.20 pm. He was then escorted to the CNB Enforcement Office at Bedok Police Divisional Headquarters for a urine test, recording of further statements, and detailed searches and documentation of personal properties. He was subsequently escorted to the Central Police Divisional Headquarters where he was admitted to the lock-up at about 1.27 am on 4 February 2021. Given the time of admission, Justin was allowed to rest before the first video-recorded interview was conducted at about 11.45 am the same day. As the 131 LSD stamps were only recovered at about 11.42 am a second video-recorded interview was conducted from about 7.34 pm to 8.02 pm, during which he admitted ownership of the found and that the drugs were meant for sale.

13. In the subsequent months, the CNB Investigating Officer (IO) continued with his investigations, retrieving various reports, including the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) analysis of the drug exhibits, medical reports, and POLCam footage showing Justin in possession of a bag containing the 131 LSD stamps prior to his arrest. Upon completion of investigations in May 2021, CNB consulted the Attorney-Generalโ€™s Chambers (AGC), which directed in June 2021 that Justin be charged for drug trafficking offences under the Misuse of Act. He was asked to report to CNB Headquarters on 23 June 2021.

14. When Justin reported to CNB Headquarters on 23 June 2021 at about 12.40 pm, he was admitted into the lock-up, and served with the drug trafficking charges. This process was video-recorded. As drug-related offences, especially drug trafficking, attract heavy penalties and there is a high flight risk, subjects charged with drug-related offences will normally not be released on bail, and will instead be escorted to Court for prosecution the next day. However, in view of his age, CNB released Justin on bail after serving the charges on him and allowed him to report to Court the next day. Justin was released on the same day at about 7.52 pm to Ms Cecilia Ow. When Justin was released from the custody of the lock-up, he signed to acknowledge that he had no complaints. This was the last contact that CNB had with him. He was subsequently charged in Court on 24 June 2021 and released on Court bail.

15. Regarding the allegations that the Court had postponed the case a few times which added more stress to Justin, the Prosecution was ready to take the plea on 24 June 2021 when Justin was charged in Court. ๐—œ๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐——๐—ฒ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐—–๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ป๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ผ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฑ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ท๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐˜ ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐˜€, first from 24 June 2021 to 22 July 2021, and then to 19 August 2021, 9 September 2021 and finally to 23 September 2021.

17. Justin was 17 years old at the time of the arrest. During the first video-recorded interview on 4 February 2021, Justin mentioned to the CNB IO that he was having depression and had previously been diagnosed by the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) for the same.

18. The CNB IO also applied for a medical report from IMH. The IMH report stated that Justin was referred in 2020 by the school-based REACH community team for low mood and suicidality. The report also stated that he was diagnosed with Dysthymia (a form of depression) and had been seeing a psychologist regularly.

28. CNB understands that this is a difficult time for Ms Cecilia Ow and will continue to render assistance to her.

29. CNB is committed to keeping the streets of Singapore drug-free and conducts rigorous enforcement to deal with the trafficking of drugs. CNB has to adopt a proactive approach to disrupt such activities before they take root. Drug trafficking and drug abuse are serious threats to our society. If left unchecked, more lives would be harmed and families affected.

Footnote 1
Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) is a Class A controlled drug under the Misuse of Act. Class A drugs are considered to be the most harmful. Under the Misuse of Drugs Act, those convicted of trafficking in LSD will be liable for a minimum punishment of 5 years and 5 strokes of the cane.
LSD is often sold on blotting paper, which is usually imprinted with a colourful cartoon or design and comes in square cuts of less than 1 cm each. Although abusers take it orally, the tabs of blotting paper can also be placed on skin areas that readily absorb the drug into the bloodstream, for example, under the eyelid. When ingested, LSD takes effect within 30 minutes. Its effects are strongest after 3 to 5 hours and can last up to 12 hours. Each square-cut paper (or โ€˜stampโ€™) laced with LSD would be considered 1 dose.
The long-term effects of LSD abuse include psychosis, violent mood changes, hallucinations and paranoia. Other effects include mood and personality changes (sometimes extreme), dissociation (referred to as โ€œtripsโ€), anxiety, depression, long-lasting psychoses (e.g. severe depression), schizophrenia, involuntary โ€œflash-backsโ€, and Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorders (HPPD) i.e. hallucinations and flashbacks that persist for days after the LSD abuse. If consumed in a sufficiently large dose, LSD produces delusions and visual hallucinations that distort the userโ€™s sense of time and identity.
