At that age she should have known "if you don't have
something nice to say..."
In Kayseri, Pembe B. (82) was brutally murdered in what was
said to be a family execution. The murder occurred on 28 April
2012 in Kayapınar village of Felahiye district, where Pembe B.
was found with 12 ax wounds, 6 stab wounds and her throat
The culprits were not found but in November 2017 the Kocasinan
district Gendarmerie Command re-opened the case, interviewing
82 individuals and eventually taking Pembe B.'s granddaughter
Fadime B. (24), son Faruk B. (55) and daughter-in-law Songül B.
(56) into custody. An arrest warrant was issued for another
granddaughter, Rukiye K., who married and moved abroad 2
"To Grandmother's house we go, over her liver and
through her head..."
The Gendarmerie learned in their investigation that Pembe B.
was killed because she was gossiping about her grandchildren.
Granddaughters Fadime B. and Rukiye K. went to Pembe B.'s
home in a rage about the gossip, argued with her and killed her
with knives and an ax. Allegedly, their parents helped the girls.
Fadime B. has been jailed but Songül and Faruk B. were released.
A "red bulletin" has been issued for the capture of Rukiye K.
Felahiye district is way up north.
