CHICAGO – A Chicago woman was beaten to death while on an exotic vacation in Indonesia; her body was found stuffed in a suitcase outside an upscale hotel in Bali, and police are questioning her teenage daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend.
CBS 2’s Susanna Song reports Sheila von Wiese-Mack, 62, and her 19-year-old daughter Heather Mack flew to Bali together to stay at the St. Regis Bali resort for what was supposed to be a fun, relaxing vacation.
But authorities in Indonesia said the trip ended with von Wiese-Mack being beaten to death, and her body being stuffed in a suitcase. An autopsy showed she died of blunt force trauma to the head.
Von Wiese-Mack and her daughter had been staying at the St. Regis for a few days when Mack’s boyfriend, 21-year-old Tommy Schaefer, showed up on Monday, and checked in to a separate room.
Police said what happened when Mack and Schaefer checked out Tuesday triggered a full-blown murder investigation. ...More at CBS Chicago
