BANDUNG – The police have obtained strong evidence pointing to the perpetrators of the murder of the victims, who are mother and child, namely Tuti (55) and Amelia Mustika Ratu (22). The bodies of the two victims were stored in the trunk of an Alphard car parked at his house in Ciseuti Village, Jalancagak Village, Subang Regency.
In addition to evidence, the police also obtained statements from a number of witnesses, including Tuti’s husband, Yosep, who is suspected of knowing about the murder on Wednesday (18/8/2021) early this morning.
The Head of Public Relations of the West Java Police, Kombes Erdi A Chaniago said that one of the strongest pieces of evidence that the police had secured was surveillance camera (CCTV) footage.
“For the time being, regarding the instructions (CCTV), we have secured it, it is being studied and analyzed by investigators from the Subang Police,” Erdi said, Thursday (26/8/2021).
Even so, continued Erdi, his party together with investigators from the Subang Police continued to collect evidence and clues to reveal who the perpetrators of the sadistic murder were.
According to Erdi, the identity of the perpetrators will be revealed based on the evidence collected by the police. It is hoped that, in the near future, the perpetrators of the murders will be revealed and announced to the public.
“So, the point is that until now investigators are still working to collect evidence and instructions, God willing, in the near future it will be possible to reveal who the perpetrators are,” he said.
Erdi emphasized that the police did not pursue the confession suspected to be the perpetrator of the murder, but strengthened the evidence to uncover the murder case that caught the public’s attention.
“We are not after confessions, but we will strengthen the evidence that existed at the time of the incident,” he said.
The Victim’s Husband and His Young Wife When the Murder Happened
Furthermore, Erdi said, based on the results of the examination, Yosep, who is Tuti’s husband, was with his young wife, M when the murder took place.
“According to Brother Y’s statement, that night, Brother Y was with his young wife,” said Erdi.
Still based on Yosep’s confession, Erdi continued, the condition of the victim’s house was in disarray when Yosep arrived, as seen in the room and bathroom.
