A huge tragedy rocked Turkish football after Defender of the Turkish club “Gaziantep Yildirim” Jeffer Toktash, 32, admitted to killing his five year old son Kasim, who was hospitalized with suspected coronavirus.
The footballer visited the child in the hospital, after which he was found dead, and the doctors decided that the death was caused by complications due to the coronavirus. As is known, with this virus, death occurs after respiratory difficulties, and therefore doctors have no doubt that this is the reason why the child died.
Eleven days later, the footballer himself confessed to the police that he had killed his son by strangling him with a pillow.
