On 10 June 2015, eight-year-old Angeline was found dead in the backyard of her adoptive mother's house in Denpasar in Bali.

Angeline was originally from Banyuwangi, a centre of black magic and military activity in East Java.

In 2007, when Angeline was three days old, she was adopted by Douglas Scarborough, from Galveston in Texas, and his wife Margaret Christina Megawe.

Margaret originaly came from Bekasi in West Java.

Reportedly she obtained American citizenship.

Douglas Scarborough, a wealthy oil man, married Margaret in 1986.

Douglas Scarborough died in 2008, a year after the adoption of Angeline.

Some poor 'patsy' may now be blamed for the violent death of Angeline.

Traces of plastic rope were found around Angeline's neck.

The police found spots of blood in the room of Margaret, the adoptive mother.

Margaret's family has homes in Pondok Gede, and in Fatmawati, in Jakarta.

Margaret has several houses in Bali and outside Bali.


Robert Finnegan was editor of the Jakarta Post at the time of the first Bali Bomb.

Finnegan clashed with Ralph Boyce, the then U.S. ambassador to Indonesia, and got sacked. 

Reportedly, Finnegan had produced evidence linking the Bali Bombing to the security services.

"Finnegan said that while he was with the Jakarta Post, he became aware that Boyce, while ambassador in Jakarta, used the services of two known local procurers of child prostitutes and sex slaves.

"They were both Indonesian nationals, one was a CIA asset operating as a businessman and the other was a journalist."

When the CIA took over Indonesia in 1965, they organised mass killings of civilians.

On Bali, vast numbers of civilians were murdered by the CIA's militias.

The Balinese death squads were calling the tameng, men dressed in black.

There are many bodies buried near the tourist hotels.


The Jakarta Post lists some recent cases of child abuse below.
