Feb 7, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Turkey seems to be still in the Barbaric age, given the news of the girl who was buried alive by her own family as a sort of punishment. The dead body of Medine Memi, a 16-year-old -girl was found by authorities. The girl had been bound and buried in a sitting position while she was still breathing. The hole had been dug outside her own residence in the southeastern Turkey, in Kahata. The two meter hole had been dug under a chicken coop so as to hide the body and had even been cemented over. The body was found more than a month after news of her disappearance surfaced.
A post-mortem was perform on the girl’s body and the coroner came up with the result that the girl had swallowed in a lot of soil, which was found in her stomach and in her lungs. The coroner said that the presence of this soil in her body was indication that she had been buried alive itself and that she had suffered “a slow, agonizing death”. An authority member said that there were no bruises on the body and no sign of blood also. Even the possibility of narcotics involvement had been eliminated from the crime.
Sources claim that before being buried the teenager had tried to resort to legal aid to complain that she had suffered physical abuse by her father and grandfather. It is also said that she was trying to take refuge at the police station but was sent home all the three times she tried to lodge complaint.
