The eight young women, all good friends, were enjoying the flight home from their “girls’ getaway.” The group’s trip had been in celebration of Turkish heiress Mina Ba?aran, a bride-to-be, and there was much excitement over what may well have been the wedding of the season. Sadly, though, their joy was soon to be cut short.

Mina was a woman who had it all. She was young, beautiful, rich and popular. Her Instagram account boasted 65,000 followers, and Vogue Turkey magazine had featured her in its pages. On top of it all, she was due to marry on April 14, 2018, in what was set to be a lavish ceremony at Ç?ra?an Saray?, a luxury hotel in Istanbul.
