Ketut Ayu Wulandari, 23 years old, was found lying on Jalan Raya in front of an inn, Jalan Poh Gading II, Jimbaran, South Kuta, Saturday, November 28. It is suspected that Ayu took a desperate action to end her life by jumping from the 4th floor of the inn.
She was found dead. The condition of the victim’s corpse was found with a torn right forehead, broken leg and wounded soles of both feet.
From witness testimony, Devina, the victim had left the house for two weeks. She is said to have had a fuss with his mother.
Still from witness testimony, at that time the victim had mentioned that she was going to Singaraja to meet her father. However, the victim turned out to be living with her boyfriend at the inn where her body was found.
“The witness, Devina, received news from her cousin that the victim died because she jumped from the balcony on the 4th floor of the inn. She immediately went there and saw the victim’s body lying on the road and died,” said the source.
Another witness, Gede Sumarta (57) who at the time of the incident was resting after cleaning the grass in the alley of his house which happened to be in front of the inn, saw the victim sitting on the 4th floor. The witness said that he had no suspicion that the victim would jump off the floor.
In fact, Sumarta had time to photograph the victim while sitting alone on the 4th floor. 30 minutes later, he was shocked by the voice of the other guests in the inn because the victim who had been sitting on the balcony on the 4th floor was lying on the street in front of the inn in a pathetic condition.
“Information from the scene, before jumping from the 4th floor, the victim sat on the edge of the balcony carrying a knife. Before jumping, the victim called her cousin, Putri to come to the location of the inn where she was staying,” said the source.
Putri who got a call came to the inn and was shocked when she saw the victim sitting on the edge of the balcony. She advised the victim to stay away from the balcony, but the victim jumped from the 4th floor and died.
Gede Sumarta stated that the victim jumped from the 4th floor around 10 am local time.
Then Putri contacted the victim’s mother to inform her about the incident. At 10.10 am local time, the Garba Med Kerobokan hospital ambulance arrived at the location and immediately evacuated the victim’s body to Bali Jimbaran hospital.

Regarding the suicide incident, the Head of the South Kuta Police, AKP Yusak Agustinus Sooai, when asked to confirm he suspected that the motive for the suicide had a romantic background. “Ayu reportedly just broke up in love. She checked in at the inn for the first time on November 5, 2020 at around 12PM with her boyfriend. However, her boyfriend checked out on Friday, November 20, 2020 at around 4.30PM, ”said Yusak.
After that, continued Yusak, Ayu lived alone. Then, Saturday morning he had a chance to talk with one of the guests staying there.
She asked the guest, what if someone fell from the fourth floor, would it cause death or not. The guest then replied, if it was not the time, he could not die but live with disabilities.
