On a day which, barring one regrettable action, would have ranked among the best in his life, Tevfik Altin’s world quite suddenly turned to shit. By the time the sun had set, this Turkish newlywed found that he was not only a patricide, but also whatever a person who kills his aunt is called.
Things turned sour when Altin chose–in retrospect, perhaps unwisely–to participate in the celebratory local custom of firing an AK-47 into the air. Altin, clearly a Turk above all others, somehow managed to slay his father and two aunts. He also injured six other people, three of whom were children.
Police promptly arrived on the scene and took that turkey into custody.
