Crime Scene Bali

Police Investigate Murder of Chinese Tourist in Her Bali Villa

(1/7/2018) Police continue to investigate the apparent murder of a Chinese tourist who was found dead in her bedroom on the second floor of Villa Ombak in Desa Cemagi, Mengwi on Thursday morning, January 4, 2017 at 3:00 am.

 
The dead woman, Wu Yali (52), was staying at the Villa in the company of her daughter, son-in-law, a granddaughter and a domestic servant. 
 
The woman’s daughter, Ge Qi (32) reportedly discovered her mother’s lifeless body in a pool of blood with numerous stab wounds. 
 
Police from the Badung Precinct, backed up by officers from the Bali Provincial headquarters, responded to secure the scene of the crime, to interviews those staying in the villa and villa staff, and commence a forensic crime scene investigation. The woman’s body was sent to Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital for an autopsy examination. 
 
NusaBali reports that the Chinese visitors had owned the villa.

The female domestic helper told police that she heard voices at approximately 2:40 am emanating from the dead woman’s room. Because the language used was Chinese, the maid could not tell police the content of the conversation.Moreover, shetold police she could not definitely confirm if a second voice was involved. 
 
Frightened to leave her room on the lower floor of the villa, the maid said she heard a crashing sound at around 3:00 am of something falling – a sound that caused most staying in the villa to awake. Shortly thereafter, the woman’s daughter screamed when she found her mother’s lifeless body in her room.
 
Police say none of the woman’s valuables appeared to be missing from her room, minimizing robbery as a possible motive for the crime. Police have collected a great deal of forensic evidence, including fingerprints and foot prints from the crime scene that they continue to investigate.
 
The family group had moved into the villa on December 1, 2017, after the villas was  purchased in November 2017 from its former owner, an Italian named Jonathan.
 
Forensic doctors at Sanglah Hospital say the woman was stabbed 4 times in her chest with one fatal stab wound puncturing the woman’s heart. Signs were also found indicating the woman fought her attacker with wounds on her arm and hands.
 
Police continue to investigate the homicide.
