Relationships aren’t always cuddles, kisses, and warm hearts. Arguments are common and even necessary in a relationship because it allows you to communicate your needs to your partner and helps your relationship grow.
People handle arguments differently, however.
A recent study conducted by no one revealed that chopping up your partner is not the most effective way to resolve an argument.
This came as a shock to many, and by many, I mean one Singaporean man in Melaka.
Singaporean Arrested For Dismembering Wife And Stepson in Melaka; Showed Police Their Decapitated Heads
A Singaporean man has been arrested for gruesomely murdering his wife and 11-year-old stepson in Melaka.
The man led Melaka police to the decapitated heads of his victims on the roof of his house. Other dismembered body parts were discovered by a grass-cutter in bushes next to an industrial area.
So, what the hell happened?
According to China Press, the man had a fierce argument with his 27-year-old wife over family issues. He grew increasingly angry as the argument escalated and eventually turned violent, stabbing her with a kitchen knife.
He then decapitated her with a machete.
Now, I’m not a relationship expert, but this seems like a bit of an overreaction. He won’t be giving a TED Talk on conflict resolution anytime soon, that’s for sure.
The man also reportedly killed the woman’s 11-year-old son because he witnessed the gruesome murder.
According to The Straits Times, the 31-year-old later allegedly cut off the victim’s heads and hands with a machete and dumped the hands in a trash bin near the house.
The remaining body parts were further dismembered, packed into bags, and stuffed into the boot of a car for disposal.
The victim’s youngest child was reportedly riding in the car when the man was discarding the remains.
Investigation and arrest
Fortunately, the man didn’t get away with his heinous crime.
A grass-cutter came across the mutilated remains in bushes next to an industrial area and reported it to the police.
After their investigations, the police arrested the 31-year-old man with the cooperation of the Singapore authorities, said Melaka police chief Mat Kassim Karim.
The Melaka police took the suspect to his rented two-storey house in Taman Merdeka Jaya, where the crime allegedly occurred.
They found bloodstains in one of the bedrooms, and the suspect also showed them the severed heads of the victims on the roof.
The Singaporean man appeared in court on Saturday (Oct 12) and was granted an extension of remand by the judge until Friday (Oct 18).
The man had worked as a food delivery man in Singapore, reported Shin Min Daily News. He lived in a rented flat in Toa Payoh Lorong 7 with his wife and two children, a six-year-old girl, and a boy aged seven.
If this man is guilty of this horrific crime, we hope he’ll be punished severely.
