Suspected Bali murderer Heather Mack, 19, has claimed that she is pregnant and police revealed that she had sex with her boyfriend, Tommy Schaefer, in a five-star hotel room after allegedly killing her mother.
Videos also surfaced of Ms Mack and her lover partying with her dead mother’s cash, weeks before Sheila von Wiese Mack’s body was found stuffed in a bloodstained suitcase in Bali.
Ms Mack claims that her pregnancy is ectopic and that it is vital she return home to the U.S. for care.
Ms Mack, 19, was seen being taken to the obstetrics and gynecology section of a police hospital in Bali for tests on Friday to find out if her pregnancy is ‘outside the woman’, a dangerous condition. Police have not revealed the results of any tests.
‘She has not told us who the father is, but there are indications that it is her current boyfriend, Tommy,’ a senior officer told MailOnline at police headquarters.
Investigators are also trying to establish if Ms Mack’s claimed pregnancy is another reason for the break down in the already troubled relationship between mother and daughter.
‘We don’t know yet because we have not been able to obtain a statement from either of them,’ said Commander Djoko.
Ms Mack has refused to make any public comment, except to cry out when confronted by local photographers when she was led through the hospital. ‘Somebody take my hand,’ she cried to her escorts, her face shielded by a green sheet.
While she was still wearing the white top with a black pattern she was dressed in when arrested at a second Bali hotel the couple had allegedly fled to, Mr Schaefer, who was also taken to the hospital, was dressed in an orange prison uniform and, unlike his girlfriend, handcuffed.
The lack of statements, said Bali Chief Inspector General Albertus Mokalu, was not presenting a ‘suspect problem’ as he alleged enough evidence had been collated to point guilt at Ms Mack and Mr Schaefer.
Both Ms Mack and Mr Schaefer have been charged with murder and could face the firing squad if found guilty of a pre-meditated act.
‘Why premeditated? Because the victim was stuffed into a bag. It shows planning,’ police chief Benny Mokalu told Fairfax Media.
Chief Inspector Mokalu cited CCTV footage showing Ms Mack and her boyfriend arguing with Mrs Mack in the hotel lobby, more security footage showing them all entering the room where Mrs Mack was bludgeoned to death, fingerprints from bloody pieces of the glass murder weapons, fingerprints on the silver suitcase into which the body had been crammed and the fact that the couple had fled out through the rear part of the hotel after depositing the suitcase in the taxi boot.
Further compelling evidence against the pair, police allege, is the discovery that the pair had used Mrs Mack’s credit card to pay for their room at the Risata Bali resort and spa, a short distance from the airport.
It was there that they had been arrested on Wednesday morning while they were still asleep.
Meanwhile, three weeks before Sheila von Wiese-Mack turned up dead inside a suitcase, the young couple booked a room inside a luxury hotel in Chicago using the woman’s credit card and filmed their alcohol-fueled escapades.
The body of Mrs von Weise-Mack, 62, was discovered Tuesday in the back of a cab parked outside the high-end St Regis Hotel in the capital of Bali, Denpasar.
Chicago Sun-Times reported that on July 23, Sheila von Wise-Mack reported her credit card was being used without her knowledge at the ritzy Conrad Hotel on Rush Street.
Responding officers discovered Ms Mack and Mr Schaefer booked a hotel room with her mother’s credit card and charged $1,000 worth of services.
Room rates start at $295-a-night at the hotel.
The 21-year-old man was arrested on misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. Ms Mack was also taken into custody but released.
Schaefer, who uses the stage name ‘Tommy Exx’, has shared videos on his Instagram account showing snippets from their stay at Conrad Hotel.
In one clip, the 21-year-old is pictured entering the sleek lobby furnished with white armchairs and a contemporary fireplace.
In another, Ms Mack and several friends are in a hotel room with a bottle of Jack Daniels. The 19-year-old girl tumbles onto the bed laughing.
Mr Schaefer also had the camera on his phone rolling when police came to arrest him – a video he later titled ‘pig stop’.
