The ring that burned Aydin S. via Facebook
The burned body of Sinan Furan (16) was found in an
abandoned factory in Cerkezkoy village, Tekirdag province.
Police found a ring at the scene of the incident.
Sinan's close friend Aydin S. attended the funeral and
shared Sinan's family's grief. Aydin also posted a condolence
message on his Facebook page, where there was a picture
of Aydin with a ring on his pinkie finger - the same ring that
was found at the factory.
Police noticed this and next checked Aydin's telephone
records. They determined that Aydin was with Sinan at
the factory on the day of the killing. Aydin was arrested
and made the following confession: "we used drugs and
paint thinner with Sinan in the factory. We had an argument
over a oil-soaked rag and then I spilled paint thinner on
Sinan. As we tried to dry his t-shirt with a flame he caught
fire. Myself and two friends watched as Sinan burned and
then we fled." Aydin and his two friends were arrested.
Cerkezkoy is on the far right, in Tekirdag province.
