Decoding the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi

Investigators are making headway in the death of a journalist with Saudi, Turkish and US ties.

As speculation continues to swirl around the mysterious case of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish homicide investigators are pursuing leads and believe they are getting a better handle on the events that took place Oct. 2 in Istanbul. Forensic specialists are searching for Khashoggi's body in possible burial sites in Istanbul and its vicinity.

Monday, investigators located a Saudi Consulate vehicle at an underground car park in Istanbul and were seeking permission from the consulate to search the car, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency news outlet reported.
