Bodies of murder victims found 400 kilometers from home
The Jakarta Post
The bodies of a couple have been found wrapped in bed linen with their hands and feet bound in Purbalingga, Central Java, on Monday.
The bodies had been thrown into the Klawing River.
Identity cards identified them as Husni Zarkasih, 58, and his wife, Zakiah Husni, 53, residents of Jl. Pengairan in Bendungan Hilir, Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta.
The Purbalingga Police informed the Tanah Abang Police about the finding.
Upon receiving the information, the police checked the couple’s house and found it locked and vacant.
"When the officers broke into the house, they found blood on the wall and the floor," Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono said as quoted by kompas.com.
The police learned that valuables were missing, leading to the assumption that the couple had been victims of robbery.
"A Toyota Altis car, certificates, jewelry and the contents of a safety box, the value of which has yet to be determine, were gone," he said.
The case is being handled by a joint team from the Jakarta Police’s General Crimes Directorate, the Central Jakarta Police and the Tanah Abang Police. (ecn)
