Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: Daughter Stuffs Mom’s Body in Pricey Luggage at 5-Star Resort

A family vacation to Bali turns deadly. Sheila von Wiese-Mack is found bludgeoned to death inside a suitcase. The socialite’s 25-year-old daughter Heather Mack and her 21-year-old then-boyfriend, Tommy Schaefer are charged and convicted by an Indonesian court.

Police say Schaefer bludgeoned von Wiese-Mack with a bowl and then he and Mack stuffed her body into a suitcase and attempted to flee the scene. Heather Mack was pregnant at the time and gave birth to a daughter in prison. When she turned two, she was placed with a foster family in Bali. Now, Mack is being released from prison and will be deported. The mom must decide whether to bring the now 6-year-old girl with her back to Chicago or leave her with the only family she’s known.

Mack says that she is nervous about returning to the States, and what could happen to her daughter, once she is exposed to the media attention surrounding her mother.
