Gruesome new revelations have emerged about the murder of Herman Rockefeller

burned remains were found in the cluttered backyard of a Department of Human Services house in the Melbourne suburb of Glenroy following a massive manhunt launched when the 51-year-old millionaire vanished on January 21 after a four-day business trip.
The killing of Rockefeller, a Harvard graduate who was Brierley Investments' New Zealand-based chief financial officer for eight years, has rocked Australia.
The revelations reported in Melbourne's Herald Sun yesterday have added macabre details to Rockefeller's secret sex life while appearing to be a happily married husband and father of two in the affluent suburb of East Malvern, and working as a director of 45 companies with interests across Australia.

had a secret girlfriend and a covert life through internet sex sites, where he
had allegedly met Schembri and Denny.
The pair admitted having been involved in an altercation with Rockefeller

went missing, and to having assisted in the disposal of the body.
Police initially alleged he
was murdered at Denny's home in inner-city Hadfield, and later incinerated and buried at a house in nearby Glenroy.

was killed in a fight that erupted after he
arrived without his
"wife" for a sex tryst with Schembri and Denny.

was taken to Heathcote, near Bendigo, and may have been alive as he
was transported in the back of a car.
At some point he
was driven back to Melbourne's northern suburbs and his
body dismembered with a chainsaw bought the same day.
