Miraş was found wrapped in a blanket on a sofa bed in her home. Investigators determined that she died from blunt force trauma to the head.

It has emerged that a transgender person, whose body was found wrapped in a blanket in the Bornova district of Izmir, was killed as a result of being hit around the head by a hard object.

When bad smells began to emanate from the apartment of the transgender person who used the name 'Miras Günes', the residents of the building reported the situation to her relatives. She had not been heard from for a while and her relatives had reported her missing.

Three suspects were subsequently arrested.
