CANNIBAL CHEF ‘CHOPPED UP TRANS-SEXUAL WIFE AND COOKED HER’
A TRANS-SEXUAL was hacked to death and cooked by her chef husband – who left her body parts strewn over their flat before killing himself.
Marcus Volke, 28, slit his own throat after escaping from police when they called at the couple’s home after complaints of a “bad smell”.
Indonesian-born Mayang Prasetyo’s mother, Nining Sukarni, said she was shocked by her eldest child’s death – who she referred to as her son, Febri.
She said trans-sexual Ms Prasetyo was “fine” when they spoke last week and described Volke as “quiet” and “submissive” when the couple visited her in Indonesia last year.
She said Ms Prasetyo moved to Brisbane, Queensland, to be with her husband but wanted to return to Bali after complaining of being “bored”.
Ms Prasetyo’s mother said her eldest child would send back money to Indonesia, which paid for her two younger sisters, 18 and 15, to attend school.
The couple met while both working for an international cruise ship company.
An unnamed former school friend of Volke’s said: “He was a bit up and down, he could lose his temper. He was always a little different. He wasn’t a happy-go-lucky guy like the rest of us – he was a bit dark.”
As detectives continue their investigation into the two deaths, they confirmed Volke had no criminal record or mental illness history.
Cops found body parts from Ms Prasetyo boiling in chemicals and in plastic bags all over the apartment on Saturday.

Volke reportedly fled the scene by jumping over a balcony after police knocked on the door.
He had tried to dispose of his wife’s remains by using an oven but called an electrician to the apartment after his oven failed.
When the tradesman showed up he noted that the carpet made a squelching noise as he walked across it.
Managers of the complex raised the alarm after reporting the couple had not been seen for several days.
Authorities could not say how long the woman had been dead, but neighbours say a “rotting meat” smell had surfaced in the days before the grisly discovery.
