The young Oak Park couple — Heather Mack and Tommy Schaefer — suspected of killing the girlfriend’s mother, Sheila von Wiese-Mack, in a Bali hotel last week have been put on suicide watch in an Indonesian jail. According to Reuters:
A pregnant U.S. teenager and her boyfriend were on suicide watch on the Indonesian resort island of Bali on Wednesday, police said, after being held as suspects in the murder of the woman’s mother whose battered body was found in a suitcase.
Another media report from NBC Chicago says Heather has reported being sexually assaulted in jail:
A Chicago teen being held in an Indonesian jail on charges she and her boyfriend killed her mother and then stuffed the fresh body into a suitcase claims she’s been sexually assaulted at least three times in the five days she’s been in police custody.
