Target Hakan, victim Serkan, Grandpa Resul
In Kayseri, Resul U. (75) made an agreement with
Yakup K. (20) to have his granddaughter Gul C.'s (24)
husband Hakan C. (26) killed. Gul and Hakan were
in divorce proceedings at the time.
Grandfather Resul U. described Hakan C., who worked
as a barber in the Ziyagokalp neighborhood, to Yakup K.
and gave him a revolver. Based on this description,
Yakup K. began to follow Hakan C. and his brother Serkan
as they closed their barber shop on the night of 10 December
Because of the close resemblance between the two brothers,
Yakup K. followed Serkan, instead of Hakan, for about 100
meters and shot him three times in front of his home. Yakup
K. then returned the gun to Resul U., got the agreed-upon
fee and fled to Izmir.
Older brother Hakan was suspicious of the situation and
went to the police. Figuring out that grandfather Resul U.
had organized the murder, police took him, his son Omer
U., grandson Yusuf U. and Sakir B. into custody the day
