A year has passed since Deniz Poyraz was killed in the attack on the HDP office in Izmir but the people behind her murder haven’t been revealed yet.
Deniz Poyraz left her smile after being killed; the hatred of persecution took her from her loved ones.

On the same day, she was killed by Onur Gencer at 11:05 am.
After the attack, photos of the attack were shared on social media. One of the photos showed the uncompleted breakfast of Deniz.
A banner reading, “88 women were killed in the first three months of 2021” was hung on the building of the office on the day when Deniz Poyraz was killed.
A year has passed since she was killed but the people behind her murder are still unidentified.
