    October 05, 2014 7:08PM


    HUMAN remains were reportedly found in garbage bags and boiling in chemicals at a Brisbane apartment after an apparent murder-suicide.

    The grisly discovery was made after police were called to an address on Commercial Road in Teneriffe about 9pm Saturday.

    Inside the unit were human remains, believed to be a woman’s.

    Some of the remains were found in garbage bags while others were found boiling in chemicals, Channel Nine reports.

    A man reportedly fled the scene after police were called. His body was found shortly after in a wheelie bin on nearby Dath St. It is believed he took his own life.

    Oh No, - what a confronting scene for Police to have to come across.
    I wonder if we will hear any more about this case.

    Update: Death investigation, Teneriffe

    October 5, 2014 at 12:19 pm


    A crime scene remains in place in Teneriffe this afternoon as part of police investigations into two deaths.

    Around 9pm, police attended an address on Commercial Road to conduct a welfare check.

    Upon arrival, officers discovered human remains inside a unit.

    A search of surrounding streets later led to the discovery of a man’s body in Dath Street.

    Police are treating the death of the man as non-suspicious, however the Ethical Standards Command is overseeing this aspect of the investigation.

    Investigations into the circumstances surrounding the discovery of human remains inside the unit remain ongoing.

    Fortitude Valley CIB Officer in Charge Detective Senior Sergeant Tom Armitt is appealing for public assistance as part of their investigation.

    “We’d like anyone who may have been at the unit complex or around the area last night who may have seen anything suspicious to contact police,” he said.

    Officers, including specialist police, will remain at the scene throughout the day.

    There is no further information available at this time.

    Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.

    Chef Marcus Peter Volke killed, dismembered and cooked girlfriend in Teneriffe apartment

    October 06, 2014 12:00AM


    A CHEF who was discovered cooking parts of his girlfriend’s dismembered body seemed “happy” and “normal” days before the killing.

    Marcus Peter Volke, 28, cut his own throat while fleeing police who had been called to his high-end Teneriffe apartment building to investigate a putrid smell.

    Officers discovered a body part — believed to belong to his Indonesian girlfriend — in a pot on the stove as well as other parts of her mutilated body in the ground-floor apartment.

    Volke fled his unit on foot and his body was later found in a nearby street with a fatal self-inflicted throat wound.

    Whoa - this is a really full on incident.

    I think I've found his FB but not 100% so can't post the link. When his girlfriend's name is released that will confirm if it's his.

    Plus drugs? Wouldn't surprise me. This is a complete 'flip-out'.

    It's reminiscent of Jeffery Dahmer - he dismembered and cooked his victims when they wanted to leave him.

    I translated her FB page comments and her friends have posted on there speaking about her terrible death.

    It must be him and her. He's from Victoria, she's from Indonesia, he's just been travelling........
