The Torso Murder
In the year 1992 in Australia in a suburb called Revesby located in the south west of Sydney, happened a gruesome murder.
The married couple, Wayne Robert Chant and Joyce Chant, reportedly had problems since the beginning of their Marriage. Mr. Chant was often described as a very abusive and violent individual.
When another fight seemed to escalate in their House, Mr. Chant went to another Room in the midst of the argument. What Joyce didn’t know was that he came back with a gun in his hand. He provocatively held the gun near her face, making her afraid what he’s capable of. However, she seemingly accidentally shot him dead in a struggle for his gun in the bedroom. She left the corpse in the bedroom for two weeks and didn’t see another chance than starting to dismember his body due the bad smell that started to grow worse with every second.
She distributed the arms and legs into the Georges River and disposed the torso at a truck stop. Joyce kept the hands and head, placing them in an ice box filled with cement in her backyard.
She later unearthed both his hands and his head, dropping them elsewhere.
Mr. Chant was reported missing since 1992, and no one had a clue where he could have been. Shockingly in the same year in October, his torso got discovered, giving this case the name ‘The Torso Murder’.
Joyce took two of her sons, Craig and Scott Chant, two little toddlers back then, to two trips where she dumped the body of Mr. Chant. The Case was unsolved until it got reopened in the year 2006. Due the Fact that DNA Identification was more efficient than it was in the year 1992, Joyce Chant got identified as the Murderer of her husband.
She claimed all over the years that Mr. Chant disappeared and that she isn’t responsible for his disappearance.
