First of all " KILLED " is the very wrong verb for the situation.I am one of the strategists of Chad’s search an rescue team AKUT which is a member of INSARAG. First of all we are very sorry for your loss. When he lost his life in our country, he became a brother of ours too. We search the field about 50 rescuers, scout leaders, climbers, gendarms but we could not give you a good news. I can not give more details about the operation but I can say that there was nothing to do.. again we are sorry for your loss.we believe that he is with Allah now.
RIP Chad.

He was killed in Turkey, plain and simple - please do not buy into kursat utku's bs - by his logic he has over 1.5 million dead Armenian brothers and sisters. For all anyone knows kursat's ancestors participated in making 1.5 million dead armenian brothers an sisters actively.

I guess those were not enough and more gavour blood had to shed.

Kursat Utku thank you for your assistance in recovering the earthly remains of our beloved Chad.
Sadly there remains many unanswered questions and concerns about his passing. Since you indicated you were present, perhaps you could provide more details.
