Victorian chef behind horror murder-suicide in Brisbane

POLICE have named Victorian chef Marcus Volke as responsible for killing then dismembering his Indonesian girlfriend in Brisbane's Teneriffe

Fairfax is reporting Mr Volke murdered his girlfriend before severing parts of her body, which he then boiled in chemicals.

Mr Volke was caught as he cooked parts of his girlfriend's remains on the stove.

Police had been called to do a "welfare check" at the Double One 3 apartments in Teneriffe.

Mr Volke reportedly hid inside a garbage bin, taking his own life with a knife as police searched.

Residents have told reporters a scent of "rotting meat" had permeated through the building for days.

 

Police find body parts boiled in Brisbane horror scene

POLICE reportedly discovered a woman's dismembered body parts boiling in chemicals when they were called to a Teneriffe apartment on Saturday night.

A murder-suicide is believed to be behind the woman's grisly death, as well as that of a man whose body was found in a wheelie bin in nearby Dath Street.

Detectives are yet to confirm details revealed in a Channel Nine news report on Sunday night that alleged the woman's severed body parts were found in garbage bags and boiling in chemicals at the recently-constructed Commercial Road apartment complex.

Police made the grim discovery when they responded to requests for a welfare check about 9pm on Saturday.

A man who lived in the apartment with the woman fled the scene when they arrived.
