Ozgur Dengiz

Ozgur Dengiz, a Turkish serial murderer, who earned the nickname, “Cannibal of Ankara” was known for killing several men and attempting to kill another.  He was also believed to dine in on one of his victims.

During his younger years, Dengiz will have a frequent confrontation with his parents causing him to constantly run away from their home.  He also stopped in his study after he finished his middle school.

He first committed his crime when he was just 17 years old when he and his friend went on to a heated argument.  He was then ordered to spend 10 years inside the prison cell.  But he only served 3 years and after that he was given a parole and he was set free.

Due to his father’s persistence, Dengiz joined the army.  During his military service, he would constantly be hospitalized due to some psychological problems.  After he managed to complete his service, his mother opened a tailor shop for him but he didn’t seem to like it as he didn’t even bother to look at it.

On the 5th of June, 2007 Dengiz was angered by a computer engineer named Sedat Erzurumlu after telling him that he couldn’t afford a laptop.  Dengiz killed the computer engineer and took two laptops as well as his mobile phone.  Dengitz then sold the other laptop but he was cheated, he decided to keep the other laptop with him.

On the 9th of August, 2007, he shot Abbas Inan 8 times in the head and in stomach.  Miraculously, Inan was able to survive that assault.

On the 12th of September, 2007 he shot a garbage collector at a dumpsite.  A little later, he stumbled upon Cafer Er, 55 years of age and a municipal worker.  After having a short conversation with him, Dengiz shot him in the head twice.  He then dragged the poor man’s body into his car where he skinned him using a meat cleaver.  He then ate some of the flesh raw and put the rest inside the bag.

Fortunately someone was able to see that Cafer Er is having an argument with Dengiz.  The police were able to connect him with the crime and he was arrested.  The police conducted a search on his apartment where they found the stolen mobile phone and the chunks of flesh that is stored inside the refrigerator.

He later claimed that if the police had not caught him, he would definitely continue on his killing spree.
