Teneriffe murder-suicide leaves neighbours shocked

A transgender cabaret performer is killed by her boyfriend in a gruesome murder suicide in inner city Brisbane Saturday night.

When they tolerated an eye-watering, near vomit-inducing stench, the residents of an upmarket Brisbane apartment complex were oblivious to the horrors of a gruesome murder-suicide unfolding behind closed doors.

Human remains were found in one of the flats, some reportedly boiling in a pot on the stove.

Marcus Volke is believed to have fled when police arrived at the apartment, but his body was found soon after in a nearby industrial bin after apparently taking his own life.

Volke, 28, is believed to have met the victim, his Indonesian girlfriend Mayang Prasetyo, while they worked as chefs on international cruise ships.

The couple were engaged in August 2013, he posted on his Facebook account.

According to Ms Mayang's Facebook page, she had previously worked for a Melbourne entertainment company called Le Femme Garcon that performed a "Gender Illusion Cabaret Show".

Ms Mayang's death has shocked Bali's gay community, where she was well known.

Mia, an employee at Bali Joe Bar, says Ms Mayang treated him to a meal at a nearby food stall when he last saw her, last month.

"She's a prostitute. She came here only for drinks and looking for customers," he said.

She had also advertised her services as an escort in Brisbane.

Her friends expressed their grief on her Facebook page.

"You were always such a happy, cheerful person, I will miss you so much I couldn't possibly express it in words," one wrote.

Indonesia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it was aware of reports the victim was Ms Mayang, who it said moved from Melbourne to Brisbane six months ago.

Indonesian authorities are working with Queensland police.
