ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan24) - A man who confessed the last week murder of a woman in the southern city of Adana in Turkey told prosecutors he killed the victim Songul Elcil after she said, "we will create Kurdistan."
The incident took place at 01:30 AM, November 3 at a teahouse which the German-born Elcil (27) entered in the central Seyhan district of Adana.
"While sitting at the teahouse, she came to me and said I am cold and hungry. I ordered pastry for her. Her eyes were black. So I applied some ointment. Meanwhile, my friend left. I was alone with the woman. We got into an argument," said the murderer Fatih K. (37).
K. added that his victim took out and used drugs over which he got angry, demanding to know why she would do drugs and ask for food from others.
"She told me that she stayed for two-three years in PKK ranks. 'PKK is not doing enough to you. We will eventually found Kurdistan.' So I got furious. When I confronted her, a fight broke out between us. I lost my control. I started choking her. Then she began to tremble. So I hit her head with a hammer," K. continued.

There was no evidence to corroborate K.'s statement regarding Elcil's alleged membership in the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
Since 2005, she lived between Berlin and Adana where she married two times, had four kids before getting divorced both times over drug addiction, according to her brother, Oguz Elcil who flew from Germany to Turkey for a DNA test.
K. also recounted how he dragged the body of Elcil to the toilet and cut her body into six pieces, dismembering her head, legs, and arms from her torso, according to the private-owned Turkish Dogan news agency that published on Thursday the murderer's testimony to the Adana Prosecutor's Office.
Elcil was homeless and living at cheap hostels in the city.
"Later I put her head in one sack, her torso and limbs in two other ones, and dumped them in three different garbage containers nearby," said K. adding he later cleaned the blood stains in the toilet before going to bed.
The victim's legs were found later the same day at a municipal waste treatment and separation facility some 100 kilometers (62 miles) north of the city center.
After a days-long investigation, the police pinned the location of the murder and arrested the suspect on Wednesday, as a search for Elcil's other body parts went on as of Thursday.
