Khashoggi’s fiancee too could have been murdered: Investigation

Turkish police has come up with shocking truth. The fiancee of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi could have been the next victim at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The Washington Post journalist was killed on October 2, 2018. His killers were not aware Khashoggi’s fiancee was waiting outside.

Investigators reveal Ms Cengiz would have been killed too if gone into the consulate with Khashoggi to collect divorce papers required for their wedding.

The writer was a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and police believes his body may have been burned at the nearby consul general’s residence as remains have never been found.

Turkish state-run news agency Anadolu said two wells and a gas and wood floor furnace were found inside the consulate and it is learned heat of more than 1,000 degrees could be reached inside it to even destroy any DNA traces.

Following several contradictory statements Riyadh said body of the 59-year-old was dismembered when negotiations to persuade his Saudi return failed.

Meanwhile, the ties between Turkey and Saudi Arabia have been strained after the incidence and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said the killing was ordered by highest level of Saudi leadership.

Lately a UN human rights expert too said the murder was carried out by Saudi officials.
