In this episode, I explore the case of Sheila Von Weise-Mack, a Chicago mother who was murdered while on vacation in Bali with her 19-year-old daughter. After wheeling a suspicious-looking suitcase out into the lobby upon checkout from their resort, Sheila’s daughter, Heather Mack, and Heather’s boyfriend, Tommy Schaefer, flee the scene. Investigators are horrified to find Sheila’s body inside the suitcase.
Justice in Bali is a lot different than justice in other parts of the world. In Part 1, you’ll hear details of the crime, as the court in Bali hears them.
