The suspect went to Ukraine 10 days before the murders, according to security sources.

The door of the apartment was not opened forcibly, making the police believe that the suspect had spare keys or Yıldız invited him in.

The murderer first killed Yıldız, slitting her throat, according to findings. Then he came across her housemate Zeynep Hüsünbey, who was coming home from shopping, at the door and stabbed her to death.

The bodies of Yıldız and Hüsünbey were discovered on January 3 after one of the victims’ friends failed to reach them and went to the police.

Hüsnü Can Ç. took a flight to Istanbul, the Ukrainian police told Turkish counterparts. An international arrest warrant was issued for him.
