It has been revealed that murderous chef Marcus Volke made a chilling phone call to an electrician asking for help after the power in his home broke down while he was boiling his transgender wife’s body parts in a pot.

Volke, 28, was accused of killing his wife, Mayang Prasetyo, 27, inside their upscale flat in Brisbane, Australia in October 2014. Prasetyo is a transgender and a sex worker. Volke is also a sex worker himself moonlighting as a chef.

The two reportedly had a heated argument leading to Volke killing Prasetyo. He then chopped the transgender’s body into pieces before cooking some of the parts in a large pot in a bid to dispose of her.

However, the pot boiled over into the oven and the spilled water caused a short circuit. Volke immediately called a power company to seek help.

In the recorded phone call recently made public, Volke spoke to electrician Brad Coyne of Positive Power.

‘Yeah I got a bit of a problem. Um, I was cooking on my stove, it’s an electric stove and the stock pot boiled over, dripped down and got into the oven and basically made this big bang and then all the power turned off,” Volke was heard saying, before asking Coyne if he could make the fix  as soon as possible.

Coyne arrived a few hours later and immediately noticed the strange smell inside the apartment.

“You’ll have to mind the smell, I’m cooking pig’s broth,” Volke told him.

The electrician also noticed garbage bags, bottles and chemicals around the house. He went to work and managed to get the power back.

He even tested the oven where the pot with Prasetyo’s half-cooked feet had been waiting for hours.

Feeling something odd, he reported to the building manager who in turn reported the matter to the police.

When the police came, Volke probably realized he had been caught and excused himself for a few minutes. His body was found later with a slit throat; apparently killing himself.
