And The Jakarta Globe reports police announced two arrests by Wednesday — the 62-year-old woman's teen daughter and her daughter's boyfriend.American media outlets have relied heavily on foreign reports of what happened to Sheila von Weise Mack, but the story especially received a lot of attention in Chicago after reports surfaced she lived in the area.
SUSANNA SONG, WBBM REPORTER: "Police say her daughter Heather and her daughter's boyfriend Tommy Schaefer brought down several suitcases, loaded them up in the trunk of a taxi, then went back inside the hotel. The taxi driver waited for two hours."
LAUREN PETTY, WMAQ REPORTER: "The local chief says the couple was tracked down at a hotel in a different tourist area. They are now under arrest for murder. The chief says Mack's half-naked body showed defensive wounds, that there had been a struggle."
