The police have identified the body found outside the Rise Restaurant at the lobby of the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) Hotel as that of a 32-year-old man.
The man was an Indonesian guest of the hotel and had fallen from as high as the 52nd floor. It is understood that his body parts were found scattered.
The body was found on Wednesday evening, with the police receiving a call at about 9pm. This is the second body found at MBS this month.
Hotel guests yesterday said they sensed something amiss at the time but they did not witness the incident. Some shopkeepers said business at the hotel continued as usual but they were afraid of negative publicity for the integrated resort.
A large number of security guards were seen stationed around areas of high visitor density, including lift lobbies and waiting areas.
On Wednesday night, police officers and what looked to be staff from the integrated resort were seen crowding around a fountain outside the restaurant, while a manager at the restaurant said there were still customers at the premises at around 11.30pm.
An MBS spokesperson confirmed that an incident had happened and said both the police and Singapore Civil Defence Force had been called to the scene.
On June 12, a German man, 46, was believed to have fallen from the MBS Sky Park on the 56th floor. His body was discovered at about 2.45pm on a grass verge next to the East Coast Parkway.
The police are investigating both cases.
