Kristina was found dead at 8am in in a flat in Beyoğlu, Istanbul. Neighbours claimed that they heard shouting coming from the flat during the night but did not call the police.

The previous night she had been at a nightclub and brought a man home with her. The murder suspect was later arrested in Bursa after stabbing a taxi driver.

Kristina was originally from Azerbaijan but had left 5 years ago because of the lack of acceptance from her family and the social violence she faced there.
