He calls a friend and reports the crime. The body is found in a parking lot in Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt. There is a prayer chain hanging in the car. During the crime, the two daughters were with the perpetrator's parents.
The perpetrator flees by cab to Bosnia for 1800 euros, from there on to Turkey. He is being searched on the basis of an international arrest warrant.
What is an honour killing?
An honour killing is a murder in the name of honour. If a brother murders his sister to restore family honour, it is an honour killing. According to activists, the most common reasons for honour killings are as the victim:
Human rights activists believe that 100,000 honour killings are carried out every year, most of which are not reported to the authorities and some are even deliberately covered up by the authorities themselves, for example because the perpetrators are good friends with local policemen, officials or politicians. Violence against girls and women remains a serious problem in Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Serbia and Turkey.
