On a grisly Wednesday in South Jakarta, a chilling discovery was made: the lifeless bodies of four children, aged between one and six years, strewn on a single bed. The father, identified only by the initial 'P', stands as the prime suspect in this horrifying case of filicide. The scene of the alleged crime was a rented house on Jalan Kebagusan Raya in Jagakarsa district, where 'P' was found collapsed in the bathroom, his wrists bleeding from self-inflicted stab wounds.
The Unveiling of a Tragedy
Local residents had raised the alarm following the detection of a foul odor emanating from the house, leading to the grim discovery by the police. Upon entering the premises, authorities found a message scrawled in what appeared to be blood on the ceramic floor: “Puas Bunda (Satisfied Mom), tx for all”. The victims, identified with initials VA (6), S (4), A (3), and As (1), were found lying lifeless in one room.
A Trail of Domestic Violence
South Jakarta Police Chief Ade Ary Syam Indradi revealed the mother of the victims, identified as 'D', has been hospitalized since Saturday due to injuries sustained in a domestic altercation inflicted by her husband. Witnesses recount a violent assault on 'D' by 'P', resulting in her vomiting blood and bearing severe facial bruises. This brutal incident sets a grim backdrop to the unfolding tragedy.
The Investigation Continues
'P' was initially treated at Aulia Hospital in Jagakarsa, South Jakarta, due to his injuries. However, he was later transferred to the Polri Hospital in Kramatjati, East Jakarta, to assist the police in obtaining his testimony. This move was confirmed by the South Jakarta Metro Police's Criminal Investigation Unit on December 7, 2023. An autopsy has been performed on the victims, but the authorities have yet to disclose the results. As the investigation continues, the world watches, waiting for the unraveling of the macabre truth behind this heartbreaking incident.
