The Staten Island mother who took a vacation to Turkey and went missing was found dead today.
She was stabbed to death
Turkish officials released video of Sarai Sierra this week that was taken the day she went missing.

Sarai Sierra traveled to Turkey by herself with side trips to Amsterdam and Germany.
CBS Local reported:

A missing Staten Island woman has been found dead in Istanbul, Turkey, according to a Turkish news agency.

Sarai Sierra, 33, had been missing since Jan. 21 after going on vacation alone in Istanbul.

The Anadolu Agency said residents discovered the body of a woman near some ancient city walls in a low-income district and that police later identified it as Sierra’s.

Police in Istanbul would not immediately confirm the report.

In its report, the private NTV news channel said Sierra was stabbed to death. It said police identified her through her driver license.

A police official in Istanbul said police had questioned a man who had been in contact with Sierra during her stay in the city. The official refused to identify him or provide further details on the arrest. He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with government rules that bar civil servants from speaking to reporters without authorization.

Turkish news reports said Sierra had arranged to meet her contact on a bridge she planned to photograph on the day she went missing.

It was Sierra’s first trip out of the country.

    Vacationing.

  3. Ah yes, a single female Vacationing in an islamic hellhole. She must have believed the garbage that hillery spews.

  4. jharp

    Go play in traffic.

    Turkey is not a good place to vacation for a single young female American. She was murdered and jharp can only insert insensitive leftist sarcasm.

    If they got the right guy, he’s looking to spend time in a Turkish prison. At least there’s that.

    She should not have been alone on such a trip.

  5. “after going on vacation alone in Istanbul” …. Probably some bleeding-heart lib who thinks islam is a religion of peace, and muslims are just like Christians. Sorry, but no sympathy here.

  6. Since Turkey’s gone Muslim who would even bother going there now? Especially a lone woman?

    Have you ever even been to Turkey?

    News flash buddy. They are a NATO member. That means if they are attacked we are sworn to defend them.

    Let go of the hate. Turkey is a beautiful country. Much more beautiful and much more to offer than the hellhole we call the south.

    And the Turkish people are far more educated that you red staters.

  8. Look and learn about our NATO ally.

    And quit being stupid.

    Explore Turkey.

  9. Jharp gets mad when people stereotype Turkey so he stereotypes the south. Nice.

  10. Jharp gets mad when people stereotype Turkey so in Turkey’s defense he stereotypes the south. Nice. Hypocrite.

  11. Sorry for the double post- didn’t think the first one went though. I don’t think there are many foreign countries I would feel comfortable with visiting alone, especially if I had never been there before. I wouldn’t judge all of Turkey based on this incident as there have been foreign vacationers murdered here in the US as well.

  12. #8 LOL, yeah okay, your post is so rich in teh stupid. And why we EVER let Turkey into NATO is a mystery to me. Perhaps at one time (before Erogan, for sure) Turkey was ‘modern’ and such, but the past few years we’re hearing news about how women are being harassed to wear the veil, their college studies are being restricted, Christians aren’t allowed to practice their religion openly, non-Muslims aren’t allowed access to alcohol, in other words every restriction and clamp-down on human rights that we see in every other islamic pit is slowly coming on-line to Turkey. Wanna send your daughter or wife there alone? And then of course there’s this: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4340049,00.html

  13. jharp, I am from BOSTON. You should see Bare Naked Islam if you really want to learn the TRUTH about the religion of pieces.

    Check your facts and geography please

  14. This person ran out of the countlesss beautiful and/or interesting places on the earth to visit that she was just determined to go to a MUSLIM country. Are you nuts, lady?

    Apparently you didn’t know that Muslims have been behaving like Muslims since Islam began.

    Only I’ve been to the hellhole known as the old confederacy. I am only relaying my experiences in the south.

    Have you been to Turkey?

  16. jharp,

    Typical. Blind as a bat. NATO member? Well that changes everything. It didn’t help this woman did it?

    And Libya is a member of the UN and was on the human rights council. I suppose we should pack up the family and go there next summer.

    Seriously, this troll is stupid.

    Some Turkish muslims think it’s wrong for women to travel alone. That could have been some useful information for the poor girl. The ban in ancient times was because it was not safe according to the article. It was not the intent of the religion for it to be doctrine. Those musi’s who bastardized the religion, islamists, still have a lot of influence, to put it mildly.

    I wonder why there is an effort to change these texts? Maybe because extremism continues to be a problem in Turkey.

    And women never get murdered in America, right?

    Murders rates. And total murders.

    United States 4.8 14,748

    Turkey 3.3 2,320

    Got that?

    She was far less likely to be murdered in Turkey than here in the United States.

    Why are you wing nuts so afraid of foreign countries? Especially our allies?

    Turkey’s murder rate is far less than the United States.

  19. Egypt is a great place to visit as well and you’re in luck, the window is still open for the best times to visit.
