Heather Mack Wiki – Heather Mack Biography
On Wednesday, November 3, 2021, Heather Mack was arrested after landing in the United States for the first time since 2014.
The “suitcase killer” was released from an Indonesian prison early last week on good behavior.
She is 26 years old.
A Chicago, Illinois native, Mack was allegedly helped murder her mother in 2014.
Mack was 18 and pregnant at the time of the murder at a resort in Bali, Indonesia. Her mother, Sheila von Wiese-Mack, was a socialite.
After serving seven years of a 10-year sentence, Mack was released from prison in Indonesia on good behavior. While in prison, Mack gave birth to her now six-year-old daughter, Stella.
Mack was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2015 after she and her then-boyfriend, Tommy Schaefer, helped murder her mother and stuffed her into a suitcase.
Upon arriving back in America for the first time in eight years, Mack was arrested at the gates of Chicago’s O’Hare terminal five.
She was arrested on charges of conspiring to kill her mother and one count of obstruction of justice.
Arrested in the United States
Mack was released from prison on Friday after serving seven years and two months of a 10-year sentence. Her then-boyfriend, who was also convicted in the killing, was sentenced to 18 years and remained in prison.
She was taken into custody again as soon as she landed.
According to her attorney, Mack was expected to land at O’Hare Airport at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, along with her 6-year-old daughter Stella.
These were not her original plans; they were changed by the FBI last week, who told her she could not go to Los Angeles as she wanted and would instead have to return directly to Chicago.
