Turkish man confesses to murder after keeping wife’s body for two years
ISTANBULA 54-year-old man has turned himself in to Istanbul police, confessing that he kept his wife’s body for two years after killing her.
The man, only identified as İ.K., reportedly killed his wife in 2012 in the Thracian province of Kırklareli after suspecting that she had cheated on him.
İ.K. brought the body to Istanbul and buried her in a forested area in the Kağıthane district of the city one month ago, after keeping it in his house for two years.
The man had reportedly checked the area where he buried the body several times.
İ.K. was sent to court after he surrendered to Istanbul Police Department on Nov. 10.
Police found the woman’s body by following İ.K.’s statement and have sent it for forensic analysis and autopsy.
