An Uzbek couple has confessed to the murders of Jak Karako and his wife, Georgia Karako, owners of Turkey’s upscale yarn manufacturing firm Ören Bayan.

The bodies of the Turkish Jewish couple were found by Istanbul police in their apartment in the Ortaköy neighborhood on Friday.

The suspects, ages 28 and 26, were identified only by their initials in the Todays Zaman newspaper due to legal restraints. The suspects, who were caregivers working for the family, allegedly confessed to the murders under interrogation that they killed their employers in a fit of temper.

Police arrested them at their own apartment, according to the report. Both allegedly confessed that they killed the Karakos because the victims withheld wages in compensation for items the caregivers had broken in the home, and they were angry they had received no money for two months.

A judge at the Istanbul Courthouse handed down a decision to arrest them following their confession.

  7. Turkey will probably give them a standing ovation since they hate ISRAEL

  8. But the alleged killers will have to answer to the LORD, for the Lord curses those who curse ISRAEL and killing a Jew is cursing a Jew.

  9. In Turkey, they know how to get confessions! It isn’t pretty

  10. Pigs all of those anti Semites. Repulsive pigs

  11. Roman Druker says:

    What is the penalty in Turkey?

  12. I feel sorry for that Uzbek couple. Now they need to spend their life in prison for a long time. He should not have killed Jewish couple just because they refused to pay him his salary month after month promising one day you will get your money. Seems richer you are greedier you become. It’s not only Jews every nation has such greedy people who refuse to pay for the job you do and threaten you by his connections that if you tell police, you will be deported as you are not in your own country. If you boss act like lowlife, does not pay you but gives you empty promises you better leave because by arguing with him you lower yourself to his level. One of argument might get hot and somebody gets stabbed. He should not have killed them anyway. Because such people are not worth the time you spend in prison.
