Sad story, I hope it ends well.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

I've been in Turkey and neighboring countries many times, and I can not understand wh any right-minded woman would travel there on her own. There is a big number of people there with a truly twisted perception of women, which is comparable to that of the dark ages.

Might as well play russian roulette.

I do hope that she is ok, but I kinda doubt it.

Very disturbing news. I hope she's alright and will be reunited with her family soon.

This may be a bit naive, but I hope any Turkish members here could help in the effort... even if just passing the story along and make sure people know her face.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

I can't begin to understand what would possess a young mother of two, one who has never traveled outside her home country, to travel solo in that region.

I hope this story has a happy ending.


Check out my feedback here.

agreed.... You should never travel alone unless you have been across seas a few times.

Damn.

Let's not try to blame her for traveling alone, after all the reason she is dead is because of a terrible person.

I don't think anyone is blaming her for getting killed, it's just not a good idea to travel alone these days. Sad that it ended this way.

I spent a lot of my summers growing up as a non turkish/non muslim american in Istanbul.
She went to Istanbul, which is certainly where east meets west... Beautiful city with amazing culture and very warm people.
It's not like she went to Trabzon or some of these far away hillbilly towns where women can only show their eyes.

I don't see any security concerns, as New York and our big cities are farrrr more dangerous to travel.

She herself looked turkish, so it's not like she stood out from the fray.

It's a sad story, but in the pure numbers game, it's far more unsafe to take pictures in NY or Chicago, than it is in Istanbul.
Someone just got shot driving down lake shore drive the other day... It happens everywhere.

Hmmmm I mean I've been to NYC many times and have never feared for my life. But I also don't travel alone either... nor and I a 100 lb house wife that's never been over seas before.
