Ahmet Yıldız was killed by bullets from a firearm fired by his father on the night of 15 July 2008.
There is still no progress at the 13th hearing of the murder of Ahmet Yıldız.
Despite the fact that a red notice has been issued for the defendant’s father Y.Y., he has not been found.
Ahmet Yıldız (b. 1982), the son of a family from Urfa, left his partner İbrahim Can at home and went out to get ice cream on the night of 15 July 2008. He was 26 when 5 bullets allegedly fired by his father Yahya Yıldız killed him. He was a senior in Marmara University’s Physics Department and was preparing for his last finals to complete his studies. Though he tried to get away from the aggressor by running to his car and starting it, he could not get far because of 3 injuries to his chest; he lost control of the steering wheel and crashed into a pharmacy’s wall. He died there. His corpse was not claimed by his family and was only received days later by his uncle at Yenibosna Forensic Medicine Institution.
