Rurik Jutting: Suicide, Sex And Murder

by | 1st, December 2014



The Sun has news of “Banker Rurik Jutting”, the British man accused of murdering two women in Hong Kong.

Or as the Sun puts it:

British Banker Rurik Jutting sat like a fat emperor with harem but he had violent sex fetish

Fatso! Not yet a crime, but soon…

And as for violent sex, the Sun has told us:

The Sun also told us:

Psychotherapist Christine Webber…said: “Attitudes towards spanking and bondage are changing. It seems that people – particularly those living in cities and urban areas – are becoming far more open to alternative sexual behaviour.”

So. How violent is violent? And was it consensual?

THE three young women beamed excitedly at the camera as they took their seats in the helicopter for a ride over one of the world’s richest and most decadent cities. As they looked down over Hong Kong’s spectacular Victoria Harbour, they must have felt a world away from the dirt-poor villages in Indonesia where they grew up.

It is not clear who paid for the extravagant tourist trip for these friends as they enjoyed the glamour of a city with a notoriously hedonistic nightlife. But the picture was taken in early August at around the time the youngest of them, 23-year-old Sumarti Ningsih, began a relationship with big-spending British banker Rurik Jutting.

He was her ticket to the high life — but just weeks later, Sumarti was found hacked to death and stuffed inside a suitcase on the balcony of Jutting’s luxury Hong Kong flat.

It’s a grim story of sex and poverty.

The grim discovery came a week after she disappeared along with a second victim, 30-year-old Jesse Lorena, who the banker picked up in a bar on Halloween night.

So much for the facts. What about the accused?

Cambridge-educated Jutting, 29, who earned hundreds of thousands of pounds a year with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, is in a Hong Kong prison charged with murdering Sumarti and Jesse in his apartment.

He resigned on the Monday before the murders, leaving an automated reply on his work email account saying: “Please contact someone who is not an insane psychopath”.

Yes, he said that. But his full automated email reply runs :

“I am out of the office. Indefinitely. For urgent enquiries, or indeed any enquiries, please contact someone who is not an insane psychopath. For escalation please contact God, though suspect the devil will have custody. (Last line only really worked if I had followed through . . )”

Bit odd. But more an attempt at humour than a confession of a dangeorus mind.

Five days before she vanished, she [Sumarti] was seen out with Jutting with a badly bruised neck which she said was inflicted by him during sex, according to one of her friends.

Good job this isn’t a trial scheduled for a British court because the reporting is not eactly impartial.

The Sun can reveal that 11 days ago Sumarti’s distraught best friend and flatmate Sarah not her real name who sat next to her in the helicopter, went on to the roof of the shabby seven-storey apartment block where she lives and apparently attempted suicide…

She has since been released from hospital but declined to talk when contacted by The Sun yesterday.
