Shane Todd: Mystery 'suicide' of U.S. software engineer in Singapore as police admit they didn't check for prints and his parents maintain he was murdered

A ten-day inquest into the mysterious death of an American software engineer in Singapore ended on Monday with police admitting that they deviated from official protocols by not dusting for fingerprints or collecting DNA samples at the scene, and by examining his laptop computer.

Shane Truman Todd's body was found in his Singapore apartment by his girlfriend last June 24, and local authorities have claimed that he hanged himself.

But Todd's parents, Rick and Mary Todd, believe that he may have been murdered and left Singapore before the inquiry as they say they have no confidence in the city-state's legal process.
