SINGAPORE -- A corpse has been found in a Singapore apartment building's water storage tank after residents complained of yellow, foamy water.

Singapore police say the body of a 30-year-old Indonesian woman was found Monday at the 15-story building and the case is being investigated as a murder. They say a 27-year-old Bangladeshi man was arrested in connection with the case.

Singapore's New Paper reported Tuesday that none of the building's residents had reported illnesses related to the contaminated water despite some cooking or washing with it.

The paper reported that the Indonesian and Bangladeshi residents were lovers and had been heard fighting late Sunday.
