BALI, INDONESIA - Sounds like someone was packing an extra pound of crazy on this story.

In Bali, 21-year-old Tommy Schaefer, of Chicago, has confessed to killing his girlfriend's 62-year-old mother. His girlfriend, 19-year-old Heather Mack, has said she helped him stuff her mom`s body in a suitcase.

Sheila Von Weise Mack's beaten body was found last month in a suitcase outside the St. Regis hotel. Just before the murder, the trio was seen arguing about mom not wanting to pay Schaefer's hotel bill.

Witnesses say the suspects wheeled the suitcase with mom inside to a taxi stand in front of the hotel, told the driver to wait, then snuck off to another hotel.

The young couple is charged with murder.
