32-year-old Semra Aysal who was heavily pregnant at the time of her demise would have never thought that she would fall to her death from the very same spot where she was taking a photo with her husband. One can't imagine the horror the poor woman must have felt when her husband was trying to push her off the 1,000ft beauty spot in Turkey. The husband, Hakan Aysal, aged 40, had apparently done so to cash in on her life insurance, reported the Daily Star UK

Prosecutors argued that the death wasn't an accident but a deliberate murder to claim Semra's life insurance. They also pointed out that Aysal had taken out her life insurance a short while before her death. "(Hakan Aysal) planned the murder of his wife by first taking out a personal accident insurance on her behalf with a guarantee of 400,000 Turkish Lira (TRY) and where the only beneficiary was himself," states the indictment prepared for the crime of 'deliberate murder' against the husband.
