Everyone has problems in their relationships, but it’s pretty safe to say that most of us won’t snap and try to kill our significant other. Usually, a breakup will get the job done just fine!
But Marcus and Mayang aren’t the typical couple, and while they had a whirlwind romance, their story ended in the most shocking way imaginable. While Mayang met her end in the most brutal, senseless fashion, Marcus’ own fate in #2 proved a dramatic end to this horrible story.
10. Love At First Sight
Transgender prostitute Mayang Prasetyo met her partner Marcus Volke in Melbourne, Australia while he was secretly making money as a gigolo. After a lengthy period of dating, the two actually attempted to wed on August 1, 2013 in a small ceremony Denmark. But since Mayang was still a pre-op woman, their marriage wasn’t legally recognized.
9. Skeletons In The Closet
For a majority of his life, Volke dealt with depression and several sleep disorders; when he was 16 years old, he was treated at the Ballarat Hospital in Victoria, Australia. After selling his services all over Europe and Asia, the man wanted to step away from his job and start anew as a dog breeder.
Unfortunately, an incident with his partner changed everything.
8. The Neighbors Heard Screaming
Like many married couples out there, Prasetyo and Volke have had their share of arguments. One night in October 2014, they had multiple disputes that lasted for nearly an hour. Many neighbors were concerned with the pair’s loud bickering; a handful of them were awoken by the constant screeching.
7. A Horrendous Decision
Scared that Prasetyo would expose his past as a gigolo to his family, Volke brutally murdered her. Worse, he ended up chopping up her body into little pieces and started broiling her remains in the electric stove until it blew out the apartment’s power.
A phone call would further complicate the situation for Volke.
6. Unaware Of What’s To Come
With a calm demeanor, Volke called Brad Coyne, who was a 24-hour electrician in the area. The murderer wanted to know if Coyne could come over to help turn the power back on. A few hours later, the electrician made his way to the front door unaware of what was happening.
