- He explained the horrifying details of the crime
Himmet Akturk from Turkey agreed to show up on a TV show on investigating family dramas. He has admitted to raping and killing a girl (4) in front of a live audience.
Muge Anli, the presenter, was talking about the case of a four-year-old Irmak Kupal disappearing after she was playing outside her home.
The pressure piled up and Akturk finally broke down, admitting that he's the one behind the girl's death.
The police reacted immediately; he was arrested and questioned at the station. Apparently, he confessed everything there. He has told the police that he is guilty of raping Irmak, strangling her, and burying the body.
He explained where the body was buried, so the police started searching. They found her remains after two days.
The local Mayor Gokhan Karabocan was shocked like the rest of the people: "This is a very bad incident for Alasehir. I can’t even call human the person who did this."
When Irmak was first reported missing, the police started to look for her. However, after the realization that she had a genetic foot disorder for which she couldn't walk too far, they gave up and moved to investigating the kidnapping.
