According to an explanation from the Head of Public Relations of the Polda Metro Jaya Police Commissioner Trunoyudo Wisnu Andiko, the police will be investigating the origins of the funds to the Bekasi-Cianjur serial killer with nine identified victims.
The police, said Commissioner Trunoyudo, suspected an economic motive in the case, namely that the perpetrators had a mode of taking money belonging to their victims, who at that time were said to be mostly female workers (TKW).
"Since when did the economic motive start, which was then motivated by supernatural promises so that the victim handed over money or other assets," said the Head of Public Relations of Polda Metro Jaya in his statement, Monday, January 23, 2023, as reported by PMJ News.
The total flow of incoming and outgoing funds which is recapitulated to the suspect's account is said to have reached Rp 1 billion.
"Related to the economic motives, the investigator's release has stated that there is a nominal value of one billion, of course, this is a recapitulation over time, so investigators must study the entry and exit of finances in the account book," said Commissioner Trunoyudo.
"Regarding this motive and mode, how do the perpetrators convince the victims, especially the TKW, we are still continuing to intensively carry out the investigation process," he stated.
