Horror story of the day

16-year-old girl buried alive by her own family for “befriending boys”.

ANKARA – A 16-year-old girl was buried alive by relatives in southeast Turkey in a gruesome honour killing just because she reportedly befriended boys, the Anatolia news agency reported Thursday.

It doesn’t even say that she was sexually active or anything; for goodness’ sake these dickheads killed her for befriending boys. WTF is wrong with people?

A subsequent post mortem revealed that she had a significant amount of soil in her lungs and stomach, meaning that she was buried alive, foresic experts told the agency.

“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,” one anonymous expert said.

Who would do that to their own flesh and blood? I can understand a stranger, a mentally ill person, but a supposedly sane father should be unable, mentally and physically, to do that to his own daughter. Fuck!

Medine’s father and grandfather have been formally arrested and jailed pending trial over her killing, the agency said.

The father is reported to have said in his testimony that the family was unhappy she had male friends.

This is one of the few instances when I think the eye-for-an-eye, or in this case lung-full-of-dirt-for-lung-full-of-dirt, is warranted. Let them rot!
