Survivor Turkey mourns for slain cameraman

The family and co-workers of a young Turkish cameraman, who was killed in Dominican Republic, are mourning the loss.

Alper Baycin, the 24-year-old cameraman for the Turkish version of Survivor reality show, was stabbed to death by two robbers in the town of Las Terrenas on June 27.

Ahmet Baycin, his father, told Anadolu Agency at his residence in southern Antalya province that his son was in Dominic to follow his dreams. 

"They stabbed my son as he refused to give his bag. He wanted to become a director," the devastated father said. 

Acun Ilıcalı, host and producer of the show, also expressed his grief on social media and condemned the “heinous attack."

"Words can’t describe our pain and sorrow. May heaven be your home, my brother,” Ilıcalı said in a tweet.

The popular show's broadcast was postponed for several days after the murder.
