Family of a 2-year-old girl allegedly murdered by her father: "We did not hate him, he adored her"


Relatives of a two-year-old girl who was allegedly murdered by her father at her home in Sengkang said the accused had worshiped the victim.

Johnboy John Teo, 35, was charged with the murder of Ashley Clare Teo, who was found lying in Block 163B Rivervale Crescent on Father's Day (June 16) and later declared dead.

Teo supposedly smothered her daughter in a room before cutting her own neck with a knife.

According to the Shin Min Daily News, family members visited the morgue on Tuesday (June 18) to claim Ashley's body and bid farewell.

His cremation was performed the same day at Mandai Crematorium.

Ashley's aunt said, "We told Ashley not to hate her father and forgive him despite everything she went through, and go in peace even if we do not know why her father did what he did."

Ashley's aunt also told Shin Min that both sides of the family are still in harmonious terms and do not hate each other even though they do not understand Teo's behavior.

She added, "We did not hate him. We loved Ashley and we knew he did too.

"To this day, we still do not know what happened. Now that the police are investigating, we expect a fair and just outcome."
