More details on Hout Bay murder

More details on Hout Bay murder

Hours before Veskes murder, a person had called in saying they could hear a woman screaming in the Saddlers Close area. But no address or street number was given.

More details have emerged about a Hout Bay murder which has made headlines in Turkey – with reports alleging that a family member may have been involved.

Suzan Veske, 41, originally from Turkey, was found murdered in her Saddlers Close home early on January 5.

Earlier this month a number of Turkish publications quoted Veske’s mother, Ilknur Yilanci, as alleging she suspected a relative had been involved in her daughter’s murder, which she believed had to do with three life insurance policies taken out in Veske’s name.

Yilanci alleged that when her daughter had visited her in Turkey last year, someone had called her from Cape Town demanding that she return and threatening to kill her if she did not.

On Tuesday, Hout Bay police spokeswoman Tanya Lesch divulged further details.

She said in the hours before Veske’s murder, a person had called in saying they could hear a woman screaming in the Saddlers Close area. “But no address or street number was given,” Lesch said.

She said officers had gone to the area, but by then the screaming had stopped so they had been unable to locate the home in question. They then left the area. An ADT security guard had been at the home, but had been unable to get inside and had therefore also left.

ADT had been alerted by a neighbour.

Later, Veske’s husband, Munir Veske, called the police saying he and his son had returned home at 1.15am and found his wife’s body in the lounge.

Lesch said officers had not found any sign of forced entry. Veske’s laptop had been stolen.

One of the witness statements said one person had been seen leaving the home.

Since investigations were ongoing, Lesch said she could not divulge details. Suspects had been identified, but arrests were yet to be made.

Last week, Veske’s husband said he had heard about the articles in Turkey, but had not yet read them.

Hout Bay murder ‘linked to relatives’

Hout Bay murder ‘linked to relatives’

By Caryn Dolley/iol.co.za

A Hout Bay murder that happened about three months ago is making international headlines with Turkish newspapers carrying stories saying a family member may have been involved in the killing.

Suzan Veske, 41, originally from Turkey and who had dual German and Turkish citizenship, was found murdered in her Saddlers Close home.

Last week a number of Turkish publications carried stories on the murder.

Veske’s mother, Ilknur Yilanci, was quoted as saying she suspected a relative had been involved in her daughter’s murder.

The publications said Veske had been cremated about two days following the murder, which Yilanci found suspicious.

When she had asked if she could travel to Cape Town to see her daughter’s body, she had been told Veske’s body had already been cremated, something she had not been consulted about.

In the publications, Yilanci said she believed the murder had to do with three life insurance policies taken out in her daughter’s name.

Yilanci was quoted as saying that when her daughter had visited her in Turkey last year, someone had called her from Cape Town demanding that she return and threatening to kill her if she did not.

Speaking to the Cape Times in a telephone interview, husband Munir Veske said he had heard from friends in Turkey about the articles regarding his wife’s murder, but he had not yet read them. He said he did not know what to make of Yilanci’s comments. “It changes nothing,” he said, adding that police had told him they were yet to make arrests in the case.

Hout Bay police spokeswoman Tanya Lesch said suspects in the case had been identified but were yet to be arrested.

Veske’s husband and her son discovered her body on the lounge floor. She had no visible wounds and had apparently been alone in the house.

Her husband and son called police and paramedics before Veske was declared dead.

Lesch said officers had not found any signs of forced entry as all the doors to the home had been open, but realised Veske’s laptop had been stolen.

A post-mortem was performed on Veske’s body the day after she was found murdered, but Lesch said the results were yet to be released.

The Cape Times was not able to reach Yilanci in Turkey.
