Death of Angeline in Bali

Q. Hi Lynn, I was writing about the chronology of Angeline, the child who went missing in Bali and found buried under the ground of her stepmom's backyard. But I'm afraid the writings was accidentally deleted. Can you read about what happened to Angeline who killed her based on the articles? It will be very helpful for me. May the Light be with you xx

Angeline was adopted by a family in Sanur, Bali when she was only 3 days old. Her original family resides in Banyuwangi, East Java, and had to gave her up due to financial reasons and they trusted the adoptive family to give her a better life. On 16th May of 2015, 8 years old, Angeline was reported missing while she was playing in her house in Bali. Her stepsisters, Cristina and Yvonne made an account "Help Find Angeline - Bali's Missing Child" in Facebook to help begin searching for their little stepsister. Angeline lived with her stepmother, Margareith Megawe. Her stepfather died, but I couldn't find when exactly. According to the teachers and students in her elementary school, Angeline was a very quiet kid. One of her classmates even said that she changed when her stepfather died. She often came to school in an inappropriate condition. She smelled really bad and her friends didn't want to play with her. The teacher even had to bath her in school so she wouldn't get bullied. She often came late to class and said she had to feed 50 chickens in her home before leaving for school. According to the neighbours, Margareith (stepmother) often yelled at her. Her nose was reported bleeding due to her stepmother's slapping her so often (it was reported by the previous household assistant that previously worked for the family). 


When the news about her being missing was spread nationally in Indonesia, her stepmother even invited some tv shows and expressed her sadness about the lost Angeline. She gained a lot of sympathy from the public and some psychics even tried to help her find Angeline. Two of the National Ministers even visited for Margareith's house, but she didn't approve of them comings to her house. This raised the suspiciousness among polices and crime investigator. Especially when the family never reported Angeline missing to the police before, only to social media first. 

Angeline was finally found in 10th of June buried in the ground of Margareith's backyard near the chicken's coop. There was a house guard named Agus who was also investigated for this case. Margareith, Angeline's stepsisters (Cristina & Yvonnes) and Agus are being investigated by the police about their involvement in killing Angeline. The result is still blur. There was some speculation regarding the motive to killing Angeline. It was said that Angeline's stepfather left her 60% of his wealth when he died, two houses in Bali and a lot of property in Java and Borneo. Margareith and her daughters was jealous because of this and they decided to bribe Agus to kill Angeline and promised him a large amount of money.

Lynn, could you look at Angeline's picture in the article above and get some insights who was the person that killing her? Was it her stepmother/stepsisters/Agus? Or maybe all of them? Thank you for your help...love and light. Xoxo
A. The first thing I see is an image of the entire family together, even the stepdad.  They are happy, all of them.  Then the dynamic drastically turned after his death.  I see the stepmom terribly depressed, and starts to see Angeline as more of an obligation than a stepdaughter (like a tangible asset to the family and emotionally detaches from her).  It looks like when the stepdad passed away he left an inheritance in equal portions to both his biological daughters and adopted daughter, which the stepmom highly resented.  I also get the word "trust" as if a trust was set up for Angeline to help ensure she would be taken care of for life (some element of property was tied with this).  The stepdad saw this as being proactive, but the stepmom was very jealous of this.  The stepdad looked to view Angeline as a daughter, but the stepmom looks to be acting a role, and without the stepdad there to "watch" her, she began to show her true nature and could no longer hide any jealousy.

The stepmom looked to have this involuntary reaction of being neglectful (and mean) towards Angeline.  She would feel back afterwards, but couldn't stop her actions..Something in her made her act the way she did (like she was projecting her anger regarding her husband's death, feelings of jealousy and depression onto Angeline).

Then I fast forward to the day of her going missing... It looks like an average day. I see her walk to the chicken coop area, and start to feed the chickens.  She is moving really slow this day and I see her grabbing the side of her face.  It (as it comes to me) feels like a toothache.  It is really bothering her, and I get she mentioned it to her stepmom, but it fell on deaf ears.  I see her talking to "Agus" and it looks like he is asking what is wrong and she tells him.  Agus mentions to the stepmom about Angeline's tooth while Angeline was still out feeding the chickens.  I see the stepmom "snapping" (she was irritated that Angeline was getting sympathy and that Agus was standing up for her just as her deceased husband did).  The stepmom then walks to the chickens and says something to Angeline about her being disrespectful and talking about her to other people...etc...  The stepmom then starts to slap her repeatedly.  It looks as though Angeline passed out, and then died of some kind of brain trauma. 

The stepmom then starts to panic (show immediate remorse and fear of getting caught).  She approaches Agus and pleads for help. It was then that she made a deal that if he helped her, she would give him a big payout.  He did end up helping her by burying her by the chickens.

The daughters also knew what happened, but weren't involved.

When people began to visit, and the media was involved, she used this for attention (which she liked) and began to act the role she acted with her late husband (like she transformed into the person again for the tv).  She could only do that for so long, and when that was no longer possible she refused anyone else on her property...

And that is all I have for this reading.  Love and light to Angeline...

Heart breaking, even with the legal protection, there wasn't one for someone so defenseless and vulnerable.

Wow..this poor child. @Lynn - If Agus only buried the body, why has he confessed to sexually assaulting her before burying her?

RFK: I get the step mom paid him to say this... I also get that Agus has some mental challenges and I don't get he fully understands what he is saying...??

I feel sorry for the little girl. I hope she finds peace in the next World.

RFK Pope said...

Wow. In doing so the mother was able to completely shift the blame away from her. This reminds me of the scenario in the movie, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. Wow.
