Survivor Turkey cameraman murdered in Dominican Republic
A cameraman working for the Turkish version of Survivor, a reality competition television franchise, was killed by two assailants in Dominican Republic’s Las Terrenas town on June 27, the show’s producer Acun Ilıcalı confirmed.
According to Turkish media reports, Alper Aycın was attacked in the street by two muggers who attempted to steal his bag when the cameraman left his workplace after filming on June 27.
Aycın reportedly resisted and was stabbed in the heart.
The young cameraman died at the scene.
Dominican police detained the assailants after they fled.
“I can’t describe our pain and sorrow with words. May heaven be your home, my brother,” Ilıcalı said in a tweet, condemning the “heinous attack.”
