On October 2, Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi went missing, sparking a global outrage. I have gathered a lot of facts and evidence on this case which has lead me to believe that most of the information reported is somewhat false because of how it keeps changing. A report from the Turkish Government to the United States announced that Jamal Khashoggi had been murdered. According to USA Today, a memorial service was held for Jamal Khashoggi on Monday October 29. While the United States was investigating the disappearance of Khashoggi, Turkish investigators requested to search at the residence of the kingdom’s consul-general in Istanbul, Turkey.

Khashoggi’s fiancee said in an interview that he was worried about going to Saudi Arabia, a fear that was proven to be warranted by reports explaining that the Saudi Arabian government was involved in Khashoggi’s death. President Donald Trump also weighed in  that he believes Saudi Arabia was involved in Jamal Khashoggi’s death. Saudi Arabia later confirmed that Khashoggi had died in a fist fight.

If it is confirmed that the Saudi Arabian government was involved Khashoggi’s death, relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia could be damaged.  The story continues to evolve. One source explained that the Turkish law enforcement had a surveillance video of a stunt double of Khashoggi walking around the streets of Istanbul. According to Turkish law enforcement, Saudi Arabian agents used a body double to cover up any sign that they were supposedly involved in the death of Jamal Khashoggi.

I think that this story is far fetched because they could not have coincidentally found someone to dress up as him. I believe that the higher officials of the United States and Turkey know the truth about what really happened. It is possible that the information could become classified and we will never know what really happened. It is difficult to get the accurate story. It is difficult to get the accurate story.
