Sami bey, right, is pretty handy with a döner knife. But
then again, he's a professional.
Sami Y. (43) has a döner kebap shop in Karapürçek, Ankara. A
while ago he moved to Ankara to escape blood feuds in his native
Batman. On 10 July Sami's nephew Süleyman Ö. (36) came to
his shop and asked for money. Sami shot Süleyman in the head.
In order to hide his nephew's body Sami came up with a horrific
plan - he cut off Süleyman's head, put it in a pail and filled it with
concrete. Then, Sami cut off Süleyman's arm and legs, putting
them in plastic bags. On the night of 11 July, Sami and his
girlfriend C.K. (35) loaded the body parts into a car.
The pail containing Süleyman's concrete-enclosed head was
thrown in a swamp at Ovacık. The bags with the arms and legs
were jettisoned at a point 3 kilometers from the Pursaklar
interchange on the North Beltway. One kilometer further on,
the body was disposed of.
Meanwhile, Süleyman's wife A.Ö. reported her husband missing.
Based on a tip, police found Süleyman's arm, leg and shoe, and had
A.Ö. identify them. A.Ö. told police that Süleyman had last gone
to see his uncle Sami so police reviewed video images, noting that
Sami could be seen carrying black plastic bags from his store.

Police determined that Sami was selling items from his store at
well below their value. He was taken into custody, confessed to
killing Süleyman and told police where to find the head-in-the-
concrete pail in Ovacık. In his statement, Sami explained that
"My nephew was gambling and wanted money from me. He
threatened to give my address to my blood feud enemies in Batman.
I got angry and killed him. I cut off his head so police wouldn't
find me and cut up the body for easier transport." Sami was taken
to Sincan Prison.
As for Sami's girlfriend C.K., she stated that "I didn't know there
were body parts in the bags (!)." And although Sami claimed that
C.K. was with him when he killed Süleyman, video images
confirmed that C.K. had come to Sami's shop hours after the murder.
