Indonesia has been rocked by the gruesome murder of a man who was killed by a group of hitmen hired by his own mother to execute him because of his sexual orientation.
Apparently the murdered son was going to open up about his sexual orientation and declare that is he is gay.
Ironically he had more than one wife at the time of his murder and he leaves behind two children.
However, he told his mother (50) he will come out publicly to say he is gay, and this prompted the mother to plot his death.
In a confession, the mother told the police her son wanted to divorce his wives. But she learned about his sexual orientation from a ‘third wife’ of the son who reached out to the mother.
The police said the perpetrators are from Cibereng Village, Terisi District, in the Indramayu Regency and the incident occurred on August 26.
Police arrested three of the five suspects who carried out the murder and are looking for the other two.
A shock wave recently rocked the country with the story of a wife who tried all kinds of ways to kill her husband and his son in a dispute over the sale of property to pay debts.
The woman tried to kill her husband in Indonesia by hiring a hitman and using shamans and witchcraft. She ended up hiring more killers who carried out the orders for her before she got them to drive the dead bodies to a location. There she and her nephew burned the car with the bodies inside.
But a mother hiring hitmen to kill her own son is more shocking.
According to news reports, the perpetrators planned the murder by inviting the victim to visit a shaman for ritual purposes in a hermitage in the Protected Forest Area of Cikawung-Cikamurang.
