Police investigate torture killing at Schapelle Corby’s Bali prison

BALI Police are investigating a brutal murder at Kerobokan Prison, where Australian Schapelle Corby is serving her sentence.

The Jakarta Globe reports that a group of 13 inmates allegedly tortured and killed a 28-year-old prisoner, who had only been in the prison for one day.

The paper quoted Adj. Sr. Comr. Benny Arjanto, the Badung district police chief, who said the police had seized a bamboo pole, cane, four lighters and a plank of wood as evidence.

”The victim was sadistically tortured during this period, in which the perpetrators stubbed out lit cigarettes on his genitals among other things,” he said.

He said police believed the death was a revenge killing.
