Khashoggi, who was residing in the United States and writing for the "Washington Post", was killed in 2018 inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and his body was not found, as it is believed that his body was severed after his death, and then it was disposed of.

The CIA, according to American media, directly linked the crime with the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, who in turn denied having a personal connection to the matter.
