Australian chef who killed self after dismembering, boiling wife in a pot mourned by family

An Australian chef who killed himself after cutting up his transgender wife and boiling her body parts in a pot was memorialized during a funeral to the song “Killer Queen.”

Some 250 family and friends said their goodbyes to Marcus Volke as rock songs like “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd played Thursday afternoon in Ballarat, Australia, according to the Herald Sun.

Tearful mourners reportedly described 28-year-old Volke as “loving, loyal and caring” without mentioning the murder of his partner, Mayang Prasetyo, according to the Melbourne news outlet.

Volke killed 27-year-old Prasetyo in their Brisbane apartment last week in what was most likely a domestic dispute gone awry, homicide detective Sergeant Tom Armitt told the Brisbane Times.

The trained chef then tried to dispose of the body through such unusual means possibly because of his experience cooking different kinds of meat, the Brisbane paper reported.

Sitting on Amazon, reloading the page every three minutes, waiting for reviews to come in on my book. Luckily, I haven’t slipped to this level of neuroticism yet, but the thought has flashed through my mind a couple times. I feel like a mama bird who is having a hard time letting go of her baby.
