Jamal Khashoggi’s Body Could Have Been Dissolved in Acid

After finding traces of hydrofluoric acid and other concentrated chemicals in a well at Saudi consul general’s home in Istanbul, Turkish officials claimed that Jamal Khashoggi’s body could very well have been dissolved in acid.

Jamal Khashoggi who was a very well known columnist at Washington Post went missing when he visited Saudi consulate located at Istanbul, to collect his marriage documents on October 2nd. However, Khashoggi never made his way out of the consulate that day. After the initial denial, Saudi officials accepted that he could have been murdered inside.

Sources reveal that Turkish investigators were denied access to the garden and well shaft of Saudi Consul general’s home during October 16 to 17th. However, they were able to collect samples with the rods on top of it. When the samples were tested at a laboratory they revealed traces of hydrofluoric acid and other chemicals. The concentrated acid and other chemicals could have very well been used to vaporize Khashoggi’s body after he was dismembered, suspects Turkish investigators.

Other samples collected from the drainage and sewers around the place also showed traces of acid and the same chemicals. Reported Aljazeera’s, Andrew Simmons.

Meanwhile, Hatice Cengiz (Khashoggi’s girlfriend) expressed her deep regret and sadness over the recent reports.
