Arrest Made in Murder of Australian Woman

Police Trace Calls Made on Victim's Hand Phone to Man in Central Java. One Assailant Still at Large.

(2/23/2008) Police have made an arrest in the February 10, 2008, murder of a 34-year-old Australian woman in Canggu.

Police apprehended Nuryanto Din Sudar (27) In Tegal at a Central Java bus station on Wednesday, February 20th, after tracking his movements via a hand phone taken in the course of the murder of the Sydney woman. A suspected accomplice in the crime, Achmad Fahrul Arozi, is still at large and being sought by police.

According to press reports, Nuryanto told police he had no role in the murder and only came to the villa after being telephoned to come pick up his fried, Arozi. Nuryanto did, however, admit to taking the telephone and laptop of the victim.

Police report that both men have previous convictions for robbery.

Police have yet to find a murder weapon used to stab the woman 37 times.

Also still missing is a motive, other than a simple burglary gone wrong; an explantion at odds with the passionate modus operandi employed in the murder.
