From temporary examination results, Ambuka explained, has been two weeks the victim lived alone at home. That’s because his wife, Suhartutik was in Bali to manage their restaurant RM (restaurant). Like other couples who are in long distance relationship, communication is done by phone. Last Friday (23/2) around 17:00, Suhartutik still connect with Agus.
