Civil servant commits suicide

Balcı lived in the village of Kuyucak and worked as a civil servant. He was found by his wife, Keziban Balcı, on Monday evening. Neighbors then called the gendarmerie, which took the body to Yalvac State Hospital for autopsy.

Local residents reported that Halil İbrahim Balcı also attempted suicide last year due to his grief over the loss of his son, who hanged himself in the same place in 2008 when he was 17.
