National Science Olympiad winner Christopher Melky Tanujaya, 16, was murdered in Jakarta on Tuesday, with police clueless as to the possible motive.

Christopher was found dying, bleeding from stab wounds to his neck, near a TransJakarta bus shelter in Penjaringan, North Jakarta, at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

He was immediately admitted to nearby Atmajaya Hospital, but died soon after.

Police have no idea what triggered the murder as Christopher's belongings were found intact.

Christopher's mother, Norma Susilowati, 50, said she could not figure out why anyone would have wanted to kill her son, saying that he had no enemies.

She said that Christopher hung out with his friends, all of whom were fellow scholarship grantees in Singapore, on Monday, the day before the murder took place.

Christopher, the second of Norma's three kids, won the National Science Olympiad in math while he was at junior high school in 2009.

He then obtained a scholarship to continue his high school education in Saint Joseph’s School in Singapore, reported.
