A mum of two has been stabbed to death before being dismembered and her father-in-law has been arrested as the main suspect.
Turkish national Fehmi Adsiz, 65, fatally stabbed his daughter-in-law, Kyrgyz national Ayat Adsiz, in his apartment in the district of Cerkezkoy in the Turkish province of Tekirdag on the night of Tuesday 12th October, two days after her 31st birthday.
After allegedly killing her, Fehmi Adsiz is said to have dismembered her body.
According to reports, his wife Seher Adsiz returned home where she noticed bloodstains and quizzed her husband on what had happened.
When she found out he had allegedly killed their daughter-in-law, she called the police.
Officers arrived on the scene and searched the apartment where they found a part of the victim’s dismembered body in a bin in the bathroom.
The officers found other body parts in bin bags in the boot of the suspect’s car parked in front of the apartment block.
The body parts were sent to the Institute of Forensic Sciences and Legal Medicine in Istanbul for an autopsy and Fehmi Adsiz was arrested.
According to the police, the suspect had already chopped off the woman’s arms and legs and was about to chop up her torso into smaller pieces when his wife arrived home.
According to the news site Haberler, the victim’s husband Tolgahan was at work as a security guard at a textile factory at the time of the alleged crime.
The suspect reportedly told the police in his statement that he asked his wife to take his grandchildren out before killing the mother in the apartment.
He reportedly said: “My daughter-in-law was constantly beating our grandchildren in front of our eyes and mistreating them.
“I warned her not to beat them many times, but she ignored my warnings. She would mistreat me and disrespect me as well. After stabbing her once, I lost control of myself.”
He was taken into preventive custody.
On her birthday on Sunday, 10th October, Ayat shared an emotional Facebook post reading: “Today I will ask myself a question: ‘Are you happy?’ Yes, I am happy.
“Of course, there are no people dear to me nearby: my mum, dad and brother. But I always think about them. What do I have? I have my happiness, the joy of my life – my sons.
“I have a home where I am loved and waited on. I have a husband who loves me.”
The investigation continues.
