Teen Arrested for Murdering Mom on Vacation Says She's Pregnant (VIDEO)

A teen accused of killing her mother while on vacation in Bali reportedly claims she is pregnant. Heather Mack, 19, and her boyfriend, Tommy Schaefer, have been arrested in connection with the murder of Heather's mother, Sheila von Wiese Mack. The two had traveled to Bali from Illinois and were staying at the St. Regis Hotel. Several days later, Heather's boyfriend joined them, but that apparently caused a severe disruption, and the three were caught arguing in the lobby by the hotel surveillance camera. Soon, the teen and her 21-year-old boyfriend allegedly snuck out of the hotel but left behind their luggage. Inside of one suitcase, von Wiese Mack's battered body was found.

After the body was discovered, the pair were tracked down to another hotel on the island. Heather Mack is reportedly now claiming that she is suffering from an ectopic pregnancy and that she needs to return to the United States to receive proper care. Police believe the father of the supposed baby is her boyfriend, the other suspect in the murder.

Despite her potential pregnancy, which hasn't yet been confirmed, the couple had videotaped themselves drinking and partying weeks before the murder -- they allegedly used Heather's mom's credit card for that escapade.

According to friends, Heather and her mom had a tumultuous relationship, with one friend calling her a "vicious little monster." Police had reportedly been called to the home 86 times over the past few years for domestic disturbances. Friends had begged von Wiese Mack not to bring her daughter on what was described as her dream vacation. But they say the mom had hope when it came to her daughter and couldn't give up on her. That may have been a fatal mistake.

After the murder, the suspects checked into a hotel near the airport, again using von Wiese Mack's credit card. There, they allegedly had sex.

If the two are found guilty, they could face the firing squad. No wonder she wants to return to the U.S.!

If it's true she is pregnant, you have to feel for this poor baby.

Ectopic pregnancy it's not a viable pregnancy and would have to removed immediately. It's kind of a medical emergency for the mother, not the embryo that can't survive.

Right an ectopic won't survive so that is a non issue. Death by firing squad for her and her boyfriend!

Oh I bet she isn't pregnant and just using it as trying to get back to the us. But she isn't so smart, women in Bali have babies too and they can check her there. Doesn't matter if the health care is "better" here. She deserves to be there! Thinking she could kill her mom and come back to the us and get away with it she is sorely mistaken. Firing squad for her!!

No need to feel for the poor baby. If she does have an ectopic pregnancy, the fetus isn't viable.

Why do grown people kill their parents? Just leave. You don't need your parents permission after 18 years old. Just why.

Ummmm do women in Bali never have ectopic pregnancies? If so, I'm sure they receive proper care and are not sent to the US to get it. Sorry little girl, but there are consequences for your actions.

I was reading the article and it sounds like all three had a weird relationship with each other. The boyfriend lost his girlfriend in April, so that means they had only dated for a few months and the mom let him move in with her and her daughter. And than the mom buys him a plane ticket but thinks he or her daughter can afford the super expensive hotel? As for her pregnancy she can't be more than three or four months because they have not been dating that long and even if its not ectopic judging by the photo of her smoking on Tuesday she has no plans to keep the fetus. And Bali has doctors that are perfectly capable of tending to her needs, she went to see an obgyn not a witch doctor. But, if the Bali government keeps talking about executing them when they have barely been even charged her lawyer's will gain sympathy and might be able to get her to

the U.S. and she would not be extradited back to Bali to face death, I mean this is the same country that gave immunity to Nazi war scientists.

Bummer for her. I guess she can die, too. oh. Wait. Bali has doctors! I'm sure if she's telling the truth, they'll take care of this monster.
