The indictment also notes that Aysal immediately claimed his money shortly after his wife’s death, but was denied when news of the investigation broke.
Semra’s brother, Naim Yolcu, told how his brother-in-law behaved strangely when they came to the forensic department to retrieve the victim’s body.
“Hakan was sitting in the car. My family members and I were devastated. However, he didn’t even look sad.
Yolcu said that all this time, Semra had been very much against debt. However, they were surprised to find out that Aysal had taken three loans on behalf of his wife.
“Apart from that, Semra is also very afraid of heights. Of course, what kind of extreme sports will be undertaken if he is afraid like that?” asked Yolcu.
Aysal joked that he likes extreme sports such as paragliding, bungee jumping, and rafting since 2014.
