Revealed: Chilling Phone Call Made Moments After Gigolo Killed His Wife
The chilling phone call made by a gigolo after brutally murdering his Indonesian transsexual prostitute girlfriend has been released to the public.
After chef-turned-escort Marcus Volke killed his wife, Mayang Prasetyo, he requested an electrician fix the power supply in his apartment, where he had been cooking her body on the stove in an attempt to dispose of her body.

In a phone call to electrician Brad Coyne, Volke said: "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."
He then asked: "Does it sound like something you'd be able to fix today?"
When Coyne went to the flat to carry out the work, Volke told him: "You have to mind the smell." The electrician would go on to tell officers the smell in the flat was like 'rotting meat'.
Police arrived at the property where Volke showed them his wounded hand and blamed his 'crazy' girlfriend for the injuries, the Australian reports.

The inquest, which will examine both deaths, opened on Monday and is expected to last three days.
When the police showed up, Volke said the foul smell was due to him cooking pig's broth.

The tradesman noted that there were bottles of bleach, rubbish bags and rubber gloves strewn around the apartment.
He restored the power and alerted the building manager, who called the police to carry out a 'welfare check'.
After initially acting in a co-operative fashion with the authorities, Volke said he needed to go back inside and secure his dogs.
He then locked himself in, slashed his throat and jumped the garden fence, hiding inside a bin as he bled to death.
After entering the apartment, police discovered his wife's remains inside a rubbish bag.
Constable Liam McWhinney told the inquest: "Originally I thought it was some sort of sick prank... Halloween or something. When I put two and two together, I realised it wasn't a prank.
"There was a pool of blood at the base of the fridge."
Constable Bryan Reid added: "It was a bad smell, it was something I hadn't smelt before - I can't really describe it. I'm thinking, 'It could well be a murder that's happened.'"
Volke met his transgender wife while they were both working as escorts, ABC reports. The inquest also heard that Volke was seeking treatment for mental health problems in the weeks running up to the couple's deaths.
The crime scene took four days to clean up, and included disturbing items such as rubber gloves and bleach.
The inquest held in Queensland, Australia hopes to determine what role police had in Volke's death, and whether they complied with police policy and procedure.
