A PAEDO stalker followed a young girl for three years before breaking into her home and shooting her dead.
Twisted Selim Tekin, 28, had been tracing Beyza Dogan’s movements since she was 13, according to her family.
When Beyza’s family finally reported him to police, Tekin broke into their family home in Istanbul, Turkey, on August 6 and shot the 16-year-old teen in the neck.
He then turned the firearm on himself and pulled the trigger, according to local media reports.
Both were rushed to hospital and died within hours of each other. Beyza passed away on August 8 and Tekin the following day.
The victim’s father, Cuma, told local media that Tekin had established contact with his daughter on Instagram and hounded her with requests she kept on rejecting.
According to local reports, Tekin was facing charges of sexual abuse of a child and sexual intercourse with a minor at the time of the attack.
He was also slapped with an indefinite restraining order forbidding him from contacting his victim.
Reports suggest Tekin spent a short stint behind bars before being freed while police investigations were ongoing.
It’s also understood he kidnapped the teen five times and previously broke into the family home.

On the same day, Selcuk Cetiner, 41, threw his beautician girlfriend Mehlika Derici, 35, off a cliff in a fit of jealous rage.
According to witnesses, Cetiner pushed Mehlika to the ground before the two picked her back up.
He then allegedly shouted: “If we die, we die together.”
Before Mehlika could react, he clasped his arms around her waist and then hurled himself off the cliff, taking her with him.
