Prior to the incident, an employee named Ni Made Asa who had been working at the villa spotted Charles sitting down, unconscious on the floor when he came to clean up the property. Becoming suspicious, she immediately called the owner of the villa, Ni Luh Aryawati to check on his condition. “Prior to the incident, Aryawati said that she heard some weird noise from Charles’ room that morning.” AKP Sudita added.
