Five men have been jailed over the kidnapping, torture and killing of DJ Mehmet Koray Alpergin.

Mr Alpergin and his girlfriend Gozde Dalbudak were snatched as they returned home to Enfield from an Italian restaurant in Mayfair last October.

They were taken to an empty wine bar near Tottenham Hotspur Stadium where 43-year-old Mr Alpergin was said to have been beaten, throttled, scalded with boiling water and stabbed.

His body was then dumped in woodland near the Oakwood Hill Industrial Estate in Loughton and 34-year-old Ms Dalbudak spent two days locked in a toilet before being freed by her captors and given money for a taxi.

Mr Alpergin’s naked body was found by a dog walker after being dumped in woods near Loughton in Essex on October 15.

Two men have now been jailed for a total of more than three decades for Mr Alpergin’s manslaughter after a hearing at the Old Bailey today (December 12).

Ali Kavak, 26, of De Quincey Road, Tottenham was sentenced to 13 years in prison after being found guilty of manslaughter, kidnap, false imprisonment and perverting the course of justice.

Tejean Kennedy, 33, of Cricklewood Broadway, was sentenced to 18 years in prison after he was found guilty of manslaughter, kidnap and false imprisonment.

A third defendant - Steffan Gordon, 34, of Dehavilland Close, Northolt – had pleaded guilty to kidnap and was found guilty of false imprisonment. He has now been jailed for eight years.

Samuel Owusu-Opoku, 35 of Dunbar Road, Wood Green was handed down a sentence of seven years, having pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice and having been found guilty of kidnap.

Yigit Hurman, 18, of Audley Close, Muswell Hill, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice and was sentenced to two years in prison.

During the defendants’ trial, jurors were told the killing bore “all the hallmarks” of serious organised crime and the world of drugs.

Mr Alpergin, who was originally from northern Cyprus, was a well-known and popular figure in the British Turkish community.

He owned a Turkish language radio station in London, Bizim FM, and had in the past been pictured with celebrities from the worlds of high-end cuisine and rap.

A post-mortem examination identified 94 separate injuries to his body including cuts and bruises, broken ribs, a heavy blow to the head and strangulation marks to the neck.

The examination found evidence Mr Alpergin had been beaten with a baseball bat, scalded with boiling water and had the soles of his feet stabbed.

There were also wounds to the victim’s genitals and an internal injury.
