Pain behind her smile.
In Istanbul, retiree Ali K. (51) and banker Oya
C. (40) married in 2006 and divorced last year.
The couple met last week at a house.
First Ali K. swallowed a number of pills and
then Oya C., seeing that her ex-husband had
passed out, took a bunch of pills herself in a
suicide attempt. Oya C. wrote on a photo of her
and Ali K. "you ended our marriage. Now bury
both of us." A while later Oya C., bleeding from
her nose and mouth, died.
Vomiting, Ali K. woke up and saw Oya C.'s body
and the note she had written. A few hours later
he went to a metrobus bridge over the E-5 highway
and jumped. The seriously injured Ali K., lying on
the sidewalk, was taken to a hospital and, based on
the statement he gave there, police went to the house
and found Oya C.'s body.
The suicide note was examined and Oya C.'s body
was taken to the morgue to determine the precise
cause of her death. Meanwhile, the day before
yesterday Ali K. was moved to a nomal hospital
room where he found a fruit knife and stabbed
himself in the chest and heart.
A nurse entered the room and found Ali K.'s
body, which was taken to the morgue for an
autopsy. Police have begun an investigation
into the incident.
