Man caught driving with his girlfriend’s dead body in car in Turkey’s southeast

A man who killed his girlfriend has been caught by police while driving his car with his girlfriend’s dead body in the southeastern province of Gaziantep

Cuma Pancar, a 38-year-old businessman, met with his girlfriend Arzu Gültekin, 31, at noon on Oct. 17 to have lunch. But a quarrel erupted between the two when the woman said she wanted to break up with him. Pancar then allegedly forced her to get into his car and shot her dead with an unlicensed gun.

Locals reported Pancar’s car to the police when they saw the vehicle’s windscreen was broken.

Pancar was detained after he was caught in the car with his girlfriend’s dead body in the Kale neighborhood by police two hours after he was reported by the locals.

He had reportedly been driving the car with the woman’s corpse for five hours when he was captured, according to police sources.

Gültekin’s body was taken to a forensic morgue for autopsy.

In his testimony, Pancar confessed to killing the woman and said he did not remember what happened after the murder.

Meanwhile, police officials said Pancar had a criminal record for “damaging property,” “possessing unregistered firearms” and “injuring.”
