Turkish father 'kills daughter by shooting her 20 times after she refused to say where ex-wife was'

A Turkish father allegedly killed his daughter by ramming her car off the road before shooting her 20 times in the head and body when she refused to tell him where his ex-wife was. 

Mustafa Ali Yilmaz, 69, crashed into his daughter's car in Balikesir, Turkey, dragged her out of the vehicle and demanded to know where her mother was, it is claimed. 

General practitioner Gulnur Yilmaz, 28, refused to answer her father who then allegedly fatally shot her.

Gulnur had been travelling from Balikesir to Antalya to prepare for an exam with two friends on 27 June 2019. 

Her father followed her in his car after attaching a GPS device to her car and reportedly crashed into her vehicle, sending it careering off the road.  

Yilmaz then dragged his daughter from the car to his vehicle and demanded to know where her mother was. 

But when Gulnar refused to tell him, he shot her with 20 bullets, 11 of them in her head, according to local media.

The father fled the scene on foot but was soon caught by local police teams with the gun in his possession.   

He now faces life imprisonment if convicted of murder.

Meanwhile, the victim's mother Gulden Yilmaz divorced from Yilmaz in January 2020.

During a hearing at Balikesir Burhaniye High Criminal Court, Yilmaz reportedly claimed that he was mentally unstable.

The court has adjourned to wait for a psychological evaluation of the defendant.   

In 2018, a Turkish husband allegedly threw his heavily pregnant wife off a cliff in Mugla, Turkey, so he could claim life insurance money. 

Moments before, Hakan Aysal, 40, had posed for a romantic photo on top of the cliff with his wife Semra Aysal, 32.
