Istanbul: Turkish media on Thursday published images of a so-called “local collaborator” who allegedly helped the Saudi hit squad dispose of the body of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi, citing Istanbul police.

The dissident journalist and Wash­i­ngton Post contributor was dismembered after being killed on Oct 2 at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul but his remains have not yet been found.

Several Turkish media outlets speculated whether the oven may have been used to dispose of the dismembered corpse.

CCTV images leaked previously showed a Saudi agent leaving the consulate after the murder wearing Khashoggi’s clothes, who was identified as a “body double”.

At one point, a hooded man was seen walking alongside him, who was identified in an Istanbul police report as a “local collaborator”, the private NTV television reported.

The police report said that after the murder, the hit team ordered a large quantity of meat which was then delivered to the Saudi residence near the consulate where there was a large industrial oven.
