Mr. K walked to the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul on the 2nd of October 2018 to apply for a divorce certificate in order to remarry Mrs. Turkish C. Upon entering the embassy, Mr K was no longer heard, he disappeared. The disappearance causes widespread political conflict, leading to a 9% collapse of the Saudi Arabian Stock Exchange in two hours. This piece tells the true story of the assassination of journalist, dissident, Jamal Khashoggi. Events are told on the timeline on which the event was reported in news, not in which assassination was possibly committed. It is certain that Khashoggi was the victim of a political assassination, but what happened and where the body ended up… is unknown.
