Dead woman in a suitcase - level 3
The body of an American tourist has been found stuffed into a suitcase on the Indonesian island of Bali, and the victim's daughter and her boyfriend were arrested on Wednesday.
In what police suspect was a gruesome murder, the suitcase contained the body of 62-year-old Sheila Von Wiese Mack. The case was found in the boot of a waiting taxi at the high-end St Regis Hotel on the resort island.
Forensic investigators say the victim was hit by a blunt object on her face and head. Mack's daughter, Heather, 19, and her boyfriend Tommy, 21, are now in custody. Police say the young couple left the suitcase in the taxi and went to check out, but didn't return after two hours. The two were apprehended at a budget hotel about a mile away from the St. Regis after a day-long police chase.
