Nilay's body was found by friends in her home. A client had stabbed, drowned and then strangled her with the belt of a bathrobe.

He stabbed her first and then drowned her in a bathrobe!

Our partner, Emel, was talking with Nilay. Nilay says her client is coming and she hangs up. Then we can't reach her for a long time. Emel goes to her house at night after getting suspicious. The door would not open, and after calling a locksmithn they found Nilay's body.

“I saw the house. There was blood everywhere. She was stabbed all over. Finally, she was drowned and strangled with a bathrobe and then he ran away, leaving the knife he had stabbed her with at home.
