Boy, 14, ‘smothers his seven-year-old niece to death and dumps body in creek’ because she ‘wound him up’

A TEENAGE boy allegedly smothered his seven-year-old niece to death and dumped her body in a creek because she "wound him up".

Ikranur, seven, disappeared near her home in Bulancak, Turkey.

Authorities and a group of volunteers searched the area with sniffer dogs, drones, and thermal cameras to try and find her.

The team of around 150 people eventually found the girl’s body in Adakoy Creek, about 7km from her home.

The teen suspect claimed that seven-year-old made him angry when she pulled his arm and hit him.

He said he decided to hit her back and when she fell over and started crying, he put his hand over her mouth to stop her screaming.

He added: "I closed her mouth to silence her so that no one could hear her. She died when she was out of breath

"I informed my sister about what happened. We carried the dead body and threw it into the creek."

An autopsy is planned to see if she was still alive when she was thrown into the water.

Cops confirmed that his sister, the girl's aunt, has also been arrested.

She posted on social media when the body was discovered that she was destroyed by news of the death, that she loved her niece very much, and would "never forget her".

The Bulancak Chief Public Prosecutor's Office has requested the arrest of the boy for "deliberate killing" on charges of "destroying, changing or hiding criminal evidence".
