Alleged killer to cut album
An Indonesian man on trial over a string of gruesome murders is planning
to release an album of pop songs.
Verry Idham Henyansyah, also known as Ryan, is facing a possible death
sentence over the murder of 11 people, including a toddler. 10 of
Henyansyah's alleged victims were found buried behind his parents' home in
East Java province.
The accused serial killer told reporters as he was led away from his 1st
trial hearing that he was planning to record an album of pop songs in the
Indonesian and Javanese languages, Kompas.com reported. 'I was offered a
recording contract by a Mr John. I've signed it,' he said.
Henyansyah said he plans to release the album next month. Said his lawyer
Nyoman Rae: 'Ryan's story and everything connected to him is being
commercialised and made into cassettes or books.'
Police arrested Henyansyah in July after finding bags containing body
parts on the side of the road in Jakarta.
