Father “Buried Daughter Alive for Talking to Boys”


The father and grandfather of a 16-year-old girl face murder charges for burying the girl alive, as they objected to her associating with boys and decided to slay her in a so-called “honour killing.”

Police in south-eastern Turkey received a tip-off that a family council was behind the disappearance of a local girl, and found her body buried in a 2m deep hole under a chicken enclosure, sitting with her hands tied. She had been missing since December.

Autopsy reports say the girl was alive when she was committed to the earth, as she was found to have significant amounts of soil in her lungs and stomach, and stress that she was fully conscious:

“The autopsy result is blood-curdling. According to our findings, the girl – who had no bruises on her body and no sign of narcotics or poison in her blood – was alive and fully conscious when she was buried.”

Police arrested both father and grandfather on suspicion of murder.

The father told police he was unhappy that his daughter had male friends. The girl had previously complained to police that her grandfather had beat her for just this reason.

“Honour killings,” usually male relatives murdering daughters or sisters for what they consider to be improper dress, marriage or sexual behaviour, are common in many Islamic nations and amongst some Islamic immigrant populations elsewhere.

    I don't agree with this, I'd more suggest a "Shotgun Wedding" for any foolin-

    In AmeriKKKa, back when it was "America", esp. in the "Western" parts they had semi-arranged marriages and this would also include the "Encouraged" wedding. When they saw kids who were growin had the hots for each other, their parents would talk and usually arrange something, or if they were sure it wouldn't work out, strongly discourage it by moving one of them away. The thing they were really afraid of was having a "Bastard" in the family, a child born out of wedlock, so that led to quick weddings of the name. It'd be a private scandal on how soon after a couple was married the lady dropped her kid, but no real shame, versus the "Bastard" label that made someone untouchable and did hurt their family.

    There was a popular circuit judge who did weddings and had a character later judges tried to imitate for years. He'd have a wedding and he'd get paid as often is whisky as money, and he'd go "Ok... I now pronounce you Man and Wife and may God Almighty have mercy on your eternal souls!"

    Anyways, though these "Islam is sexist!" posts here are amusing, I'm worried there's too much on Islam, which suggests some kind of bias or hate mongering. The "Good Christians" do plenty in this day and age also. How about the "Lil brown collection from Hati?" Where they are trying to smuggle kids to 'resuce' them but as more and more comes out, something else might be going on... Or the Christians who used a speedboat to deliver solar powered electronic bibles right after the quake? (no food or medicine, they filled it with talking bibles, I guess to turn them from Voodoo and their "Pact with Satan" according to Robertson...) And almost every year there's a neurotic "Carrie" wanna-be that has a baby then thinks it's "Lucifer" and burns it in the oven...

    Where DO you submit them, then? Maybe I've been looking in the wrong place, but a time or two I tried to find where to send a note about this or that...?

    Be appreciative if you'd show me:-)

    islam a religion supposedly of peace...

    thousand year old scriptures that dictate how one lives one' life... the original texts may not have intended the such interpretation...

    but such is a work of literature, and it will be interpreted regardless....

    women getting killed for honor may or may not have been originally in those ancient scriptures...but so long as it is something that can be interepreted then it's intent, purpose and meaning can be corrupted and twisted in any form the interpreter deem correct...

    if there is no absolute word that such scriptures should be regarded in a certain way, even if one interprets that killing your daughter for honor is incorrect, well your interpretation is just part of the countless other interpretations that are deemed correct buy their interpretors...

    if the scriptures didn't exist there wouldn't be a misinterpretation of it's text and thus no reason for that girl to suffer and die horribly..

    Really now, could it not be he simply wanted to kill someone who could not fight back, and blame it all on his upbringing and religion?

    Its only fitting if he is buried alive himself, to accompany his daughter.

    But it still does not solve the problem: rotten hearts of people.

    Well we can't nag on Buddhism since they haven't really done so much. Though I think they actually said that violent games are good for relaxing. huh...the jury is yours Mr. Thompson.

    this is why religion is poisonous. comes priority to other human rights and all.

    Well, catholic did these kinda things to in the medieval age too.

    fuck, can't believe there are so many people who still believe in purity of religions without political concerns.

    And of course, SC finds it somehow pertinent to the story at hand to mention in the very last sentence the fact that Turkey is a largely Islamic nation.

    A+ for astounding bigotry, Sankaku.

    It appears that the killers wanted her to be a yuri. *joke*

    Seriously, I think the problem is stupidity and/or laziness, in that the murderers never questioned what they were told, or what they read.

    I don't mean questioned as in, "I won't believe in God/Allah unless you can prove to me He exists."

    I mean questioned as in, "Does this seem reasonable? Does it seem fair? If not, I won't go along with it."

    When I was a child, my grandfather told me he had thirteen fingers, and could "count" them in a way which would result in this total, but I didn't believe him. (He was straight-facedly joking with me.)

    The Weekly World News reports Elvis' ghost having hot gray-man alien sex, or whatever, but I don't believe that either.

    Stupid and lazy people just don't question.

    Or, these murderers might simply be Evil Bastards(TM) on a power trip, using the Qu'ran as an excuse.

    As if honour killings weren't bad enough already, now they have to murder their daughters in the most gruesome fashion possible for the most absurdly trivial of reasons.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Islam should be wiped out. I don't give a fuck about the moderates and innocents; any religion that can inspire these monsters needs to be destroyed. Now.

    I agree, medieval traditions should be erased from todays societies.

    They go on about abortion being wrong yet they do nothing about these "honour killings".

    The leaders of these religions don't even condemn them, makes you think that even these leaders are just as bad.

    Man people sure are dumb. I'm not talking about the two men, but the people who post comments here.

    Religion doesn't teach this. Christians, Jews, Hindus, Budhists, they all do this (honor killing) too. Just go visit the arab countries or the indian subcontinent.

    It's not religion, it' culture that teaches this.

    I've never heard of a Buddhist or Christian in modern times doing this. Just admit it, Islam is a hateful intollerant religion that refuses to intergrate. You can't have religious equality, if one religion doesn't see other human beings as their equals.

    The reason why you can't lump Islam, into the same category as other religions. Is that Muslims are taught to believe that the Quran is perfect and that peaceful verses that contradict the violent ones, are not relevant. If a religions main teachings are to take the holy text completely literally, there is going to be extremism, this is why Islam as a religion is extreme.

    Islam only has one prophet aswell, giving him free reign to demand a specific way in which to follow Islam.

    No, it is NOT a hateful intolerant religion, at least no more than Christianity, Judaism, etc. are..... and yes, I HAVE heard of Christian fathers killing their daughters for this over here in the United States.... it's not well publicized since it puts the old 'black light' on the whole of Christianity and exposes what IDIOTS they are and they don't want nor allow that.

    again a anonymous dumbass who knows shit. dumb people are not muslims, that cant be (like expelling from religion)
    the teaching is, kill one innocent life, you kill the whole mankind" but those murderer family does not know. still turkey has laws against this. and when they die, they burn in hellfire (from religious view). life is not that simple.
    Simple to kill somebody, yes, but hard to face the prosecution

    i like how all of you faggots like to give a label for everything like "religion" is the cause of ignorant people everywhere. or how so-and-so is the cause of whatever.

    look lets keep it real, and simple.

    humanity as an entirety whether good or bad is neither remarkable or astonishing. for everything good there is something just as terrible. with the shit i have gone on to read in this article, it only affirms to me that if something where to destroy this shitty blue speck of dust in this endless sea of void, i would not miss it. and if the entire world were in a dire situation, i would laugh at the cries of suffering and torment as doom lay upon us all.

    you all get emotional when hearing about the unusual death of an individual, scrambling to shit out your opinion like some kind of festering pig with a stomach parasite, before stopping to realize that no matter how you die, it does not matter what you do in life, you will all end the same way. whether you're some piss soaked homeless man who has not had a home for 20 years, a rich fat slob who could care less about the world, or perhaps one who cares and readily assists the needy at any moment. in the end it all amounts to nothing, because no hard work or suffering matters at the hands of death, you will experience the exact same thing as anyone else.

    that being said, above all i really want to believe in humanity. because i know for everything atrocious we can commit, we all have the potential to do something just as miraculous.
