BALI — Newly unsealed documents from the Heather Mack murder case reveal some of the intrigue that led to the death of Mack’s mother.

Sheila Von Wiese Mack was beaten to death last year by Heather’s boyfriend Tommy Schaefer. Her body was stuffed into a suitcase in Bali.

The Sun-Times reports, just months before the murder, Heather wrote to Schaefer on Facebook, “Can you not tell people I asked you to kill my mom?”

Schaefer urged Heather to take her mother to court to seize her share of a family trust fund.

Schaefer is serving an 18-year sentence. Mack got 10 years for helping him.
