The Turkish investigate team probing the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi found traces of hydrofluoric acid and other chemicals inside a well at Saudi Consul General Mohammed al-Otaibi’s house in Istanbul, according to a report by Al Jazeera.

Turkey was initially denied permission to search the well at the consul’s residence.

A source in the Turkish attorney general’s office conveyed that the killers vaporized the journalist’s dismembered body in acid in one of the rooms at Saudi consul’s residence, the report continued.

Mohammad al-Otaibi left Turkey on a commercial flight on Oct .16 before his residence was searched by Turkish police on Oct. 17.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed inside the Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul after he went there to obtain documents for his forthcoming marriage.

The Saudi government initially insisted Khashoggi had left the consulate, later saying he died in an unplanned “rogue operation”.

On Oct. 25, the kingdom’s public prosecutor Saud Al Mojeb said the attack was premeditated.

Istanbul chief prosecutor Irfan Fidan in his turn said that Khashoggi was suffocated as soon as he entered the consulate, and his body then cut up and disposed of. Turkey has demanded cooperation from Saudi officials.
