Strange But A True Story

Her name was Sivasli. She was 41 years old. Teacher. She fell in love with a married man. After a few years, he left her. Sivasli could not bear the loss of her lover. She was dejected. She wanted to commit suicide.
 
But she did not have the guts to commit suicide. She thought about how to end her life. Then she had a "brilliant" idea. She hired a “hit man” to kill her. Contacted the hit man. Money was negotiated. Sivasli paid him the full amount to kill her.
 
The first time the hit man saw Sivasli, he fell in love with her. Her beauty, her charm, her grace—all affected his mind. He did not want to kill her. He pleaded with her not to take her life. He told her he is in love with her and would take care of her. But Sivasli was firm in her mind to die.
 
One day, she pressured him to kill her. One time the hit man tried to strangle her. But couldn’t do it when she started turning red.
 
Then she bought a gun and gave it to him to kill her. When they met one night, she told him “if you really love me, please kill me.” He put a pillow on her face and shot her twice on the pillow. He thought she would not die. Called the emergency line and fled the scene.
 
Police and ambulance came. Unfortunately, she died while paramedics were trying to save her when they got to her house.
 
She died in Istanbul on April 21.
 
PS:  While I feel really sorry for Sivasli, this would make a good story for the Indian movies.   They would change the ending as if they happily lived ever after.

  1. This story truly depicts the mindset of people we always run after what we dont have instead of appreciating what we do have. Most of us either base our life on what happened in the past or what is to come in the future...wish she could have had a happy ending

    1. Thanks for your comments Dee. I certainly agree with you. We should forget the past as a bad dream and get on with life.

  2. Definitely feel bad for the woman. Hell, I feel bad for the hit man too.

    I was thinking the same thing. Make an Indian movie out of this story.
    Just add four songs, three fight scenes, two comedians who have nothing to do with the overall story, one happy ending (not the kind you get at a massage parlor)...and then voila...a ready-made Indian movie.

  4. A strange but a different true story! Bollywood, I am sure, is thirsty for such exotic plots. The movie's title could be - 'Two Crazy People' - translated into Hindi?

    Destination Infinity

  5. That this is true is really mindbending.

    I wonder how many such real stories exist.

  6. I have heard of killers being hired to get other people killed. For the first time, I am reading about someone hiring a killer to kill oneself.

    A sad story, but a very unusual incident. Just to know more about it, I checked the web, and I found that only two English publications have this story -- Daily Sabah of Istanbul and Daily Mirror of London. Quite surprising that such a strange crime story didn't get picked up by other media.

    Yes, it won't be surprising if a movie gets made on this.

  7. True it is a good plot for a movie. Ending a life is the job of feeble minds. Surviving the defeats requires reason leading to an introspection.Different from the usual spices.Nice.

  9. Unable to believe that this incident happened. There are so many other distractions in the world to set aside a bad incident in life. She should have carried on with her life.
