A Turkish man recently committed a terrible crime while pretending to want to take many shots. He convinced his pregnant wife that they would be taking photos on a cliff that was 1,000 feet (304 metres) high. He lured her to the edge of the cliff before pushing her over the edge and murdering her instantaneously.
Hakan Aysal, 41, was convicted guilty of murdering Semra Aysal, his wife who was seven months pregnant (32). According to the New York Post, the couple was visiting Turkey's well-known Butterfly Valley in Mugla. Hakan seemed to have persuaded Semra to approach the brink of the cliff despite her fear of heights. She was about to fall from that height if he hadn't shoved her down as she drew near to him.
The New York Post was the first to contest Hakan's death. Unusually, he supposedly purchased a $25,000 life insurance policy on his wife's life not long after she passed away. He was recently held responsible for the death of his wife, but he allegedly tried to overturn the verdict by claiming he was mentally disturbed. Thankfully, his charges were found to be untrue, and he will most likely serve the remainder of his life behind bars. He must serve at least 30 years in prison, according to the court, before being given parole consideration.
Unfortunately, in our work as reporters, we have witnessed countless inadvertent selfie deaths in addition to crimes like murders and armed robberies of photographers. These tales often give me the creeps, but this one made me especially sad since it reminded me of all the women who endure various sorts of domestic abuse. I would like to use this opportunity to call your attention to the rising instances of femicide.
A recent UN research states that of the 81,000 women and girls who were intentionally killed last year, 45,000, or nearly 56%, were killed by intimate partners or other family members.
