JAKARTA (AFP) – Two men have been arrested over the murder of an elderly Dutch man whose decomposing body was found at his home on the Indonesian holiday island of Bali. The corpse of Robert Gilhooad, 80, was found on November 3 at his rental property in Jimbaran, a resort area in the southern
part of the island. An autopsy concluded the Dutch expatriate had been murdered, said policeman Aris Purwanto, the region’s criminal investigative chief. “He had injuries to the left of his head,” he said, adding that the perpetrator had used a steel object.
Two suspects have been detained in connection with the crime, Mr Purwanto said. Police believe there was a monetary motive for killing Gilhooad, a long-term Bali resident who lived alone.
