Ex-convict in Turkey’s southeast murders wife, son for second time
An ex-convict in the southeastern Turkish province of Adıyaman, whose past murders include his first wife and son, has killed his third wife and her son.
Local media reported on Sept. 25 that the 76-year-old man, identified only as Bekir A., killed his third wife Emine and their 18-year-old son Enes in the Güzelyurt village last week.
Police launched an investigation to catch the man, who fled the scene after committing the murders.
According to reports, the man had killed his first wife and son 34 years ago.
After spending only eight years in jail, he was released but arrested soon after for killing his aunt’s son.
Suffering from psychiatric issues, the man was released again with a medical report.
He had a short marriage with his second wife, before divorcing her and marrying 61-year-old Emine Orki.
Their son Enes was reportedly preparing to start university this week after winning the entrance exam for Iğdır University.
