Khashoggi's body parts dissolved in acid

Jamal Khashoggi, Body parts, acid

Istanbul : The Saudi government operatives dissolved Journalist Jamal Khashoggi's body after murdering and dismembering him, an adviser to Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogen said.

“We now see that it wasn’t just cut up (the Saudi suspects) got rid of the body by dissolving it,” Yasin Aktay, an adviser to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and an official in Turkey’s ruling party, told the newspaper Hurriyet on Friday.  

The remarks represented the first official statement from a Turkish authority about what allegedly happened to Khashoggi''s body.

However, the forensic experts questioned the theory, as they pointed out that disposing of a body using acid can take months.

The Journalist's body has still not been found a month after his disappearance on 2 October, when he entered the consulate to obtain marriage papers while his fiance Hatice Cengiz, waited outside.
