Turkish Teen Buried Alive

Acting like a typical teenager was enough to merit a death sentence for a girl in Turkey—from her relatives no less. Turkish police said they uncovered the dirt grave of a 16-year-old buried alive by family members who murdered her for talking to boys, the Guardian reports. Soil was found in the body's lungs, indicating the body was buried alive. Southeastern Turkey, where the crime was committed, has faced a number of "honor killings" in the past, in which women are killed by family and neighbors for violating extreme standards of decency.
