    Death in Bali

    Another well planned murder .... not

    Bali police questioning daughter of American tourist Sheila Von Wiese Mack murdered in Bali

    Hotel CCTV footage then shows that at 11.26am on Tuesday, the young couple came into the hotelís reception area carrying a large suitcase wrapped in a hotel bedsheet. They were booked to leave on Thursday, but asked to check out immediately, Mr Djoko said. They refused to let the hotel staff handle the suitcase, instead taking it straight to a taxi they had pre-ordered, and loading it themselves into the boot.

    Mr Djoko said the couple then told reception staff that they would not pay the bill because Heatherís mother would pay when she checked out later. They also demanded that hotel staff open a safety deposit box at reception and give them the contents.
    The staff refused both requests. Mr Djoko said Mrs Mack had left clear instructions that only she should be able to open the safe, which staff believed contained her jewellery........

    They went directly to Ngurah Rai airport and the immigration counter, saying they had lost their passports and needed new ones to fly out. Mr Djoko speculated that their passports were also locked inside the safety deposit box at the hotel. But immigration staff told them they would need to report the loss to the US consulate.

    Sickening. Not just the murder itself but the way they were just carrying her corpse around in a suitcase.

    The article said 15 years jail time but is that the minimum or maximum? Hope they are not let off lightly.

    Don't worry, murder has no statuette limitations here in the states. If they get out, the US courts will drag them in. No 'double jeopardy' in this instance.

    If you get time off for stupidity, they should be out in a couple of years.

    So dope gets you more than murder there? That's crazy. I think if they do get 15 years that will get maybe knocked down to 10. Far too light a sentence.

    There's a Slayer Rule ( nothing to do with Buffy ) that any inheritance would bypass the murderer

    The case reminds me of the Society Murders in Melbourne back in 92 ...... having murdered the parents the son went next door and bought a large tarpaulin from a Petrol station with his own credit card to wrap the bodies in ... he then buried them in a State park where the Rangers patrolled regularly....

    According to this article i was reading its the death penalty.

    [URL="http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/us-couple-heather-mack-and-tommy-schaefer-likely-to-be-charged-with-murder-of-sheila-von-wiesemack-found-in-suitcase-in-bali/story-fnhocwho-1227026365198"]

    Heather Mack, 19, and her boyfriend Tommy Schaefer, 21, both from Chicago, were arrested Wednesday in Bali’s Kuta area, a day after the body of Sheila von Wiese-Mack was found inside the trunk of a taxi parked in front of the St. Regis Bali Resort.

    The couple are being held in a police jail as suspects but have yet to be fully questioned by police because they are insisting on having their American lawyer present for any interrogations.

    Police say the couple will likely be charged with premeditated murder, which carries the maximum death penalty.

    But under the Indonesian legal system they can be held as suspects, without charge, for some time and are not officially charged until the case has been fully investigated and the prosecutors take them to court.

    Like so many of these stories , theres huge anomolies.
    If they were so well travelled , surely the daughter would have known you cant just arrive at the airport claiming you'd lost your passport and fly immediately.
    And theres a touch of madness in any Mum saying its a 19 year olds job to pay for such a salubrious hotel.
    And 'control freak' in issuing orders only she could access their safe.

    And the murder certainly cant have been premeditated - no one could possibly plan such a fcuk up.

    I don't know, stabbing yourself multiple times is one thing, but then stuffing yourself in a suitcase should convince even the dumbest cop that there is something fishy going on 55555

    Surely there cant be a worse place for committing a murder... security cameras everywhere , staff watching your every move ... you cant even go out for fear a cleaner will let herself into your quarters...
    I keep wondering what they were going to do with Mums body had they got it to the airport ( in a bag wrapped in a stolen hotel sheet! ) - fly her home?
