Audio of Khashoggi's Murder May Implicate Saudi Crown Prince

This "murder kit" was reportedly loaded onto two planes that left for Riyadh hours after Khashoggi's murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
Bob Baer, who worked as a Central Intelligence Agency case officer primarily in the Middle East, told CNN's Jake Tapper that the USA has purposely muted its response to Khashoggi's murder, despite mounting evidence - including audio recordings - that some suggest implicates the Saudi Crown Prince.
The audio recording of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is so "atrocious" that a Saudi intelligence official who heard it speculated that "only someone who took heroin" could carry it out, Turkey's president was quoted as saying Tuesday.
Pressing ahead with moves to maintain pressure on Saudi Arabia, Erdogan said the crown prince had told Turkish envoys that he would shed light on the October 2 killing at the kingdom's consulate and do what was "necessary". Mutreb is a security officer who frequently travels with the crown prince. "When the Saudi intelligence agent listened, he was shocked and said this could only be done by someone who got heroin".
Erdogan has said the order to murder Khashoggi came from "the highest levels" of the Saudi government and he pointedly failed to absolve Crown Prince Salman of responsibility.
The Turkish chief prosecutor has previously said that Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the consulate as part of a premeditated plan, and his body dismembered.
He said the recordings related to the killing of the Washington Post columnist, which Turkey has shared with Western allies, are "appalling", Turkish media reported on Tuesday.

Mohammed bin Salman has rose from being a relatively little-known royal to the most powerful man in Saudi Arabia, after the elevation of his father, Salman, to king.
Erdogan did not elaborate on how and when the Saudi official heard the recording of the killing of the Saudi citizen. "And certainly that is not the position of the Saudi government", he said in Singapore. "It should be uncovered who gave the order to kill".
