KUALA LUMPUR -- Battered and bloodied, the body of an Indonesian businessman is found inside a yacht. He is bent on his knees facing the couch where his wife and two baby daughters are slumped in a macabre file of dead spectators. Like a stake, a dagger goes through the back of the man's neck, emerging from his lips.

The murder is not just gruesome, but complicated: The Indonesian family was holidaying in a Singapore-registered yacht, and killed in Malaysian waters.
