   Again, 11 days after the boy's death, Toktas reportedly travelled to a local police station to hand himself in and admit that he had killed his son. Toktas allegedly told officers that he took the opportunity to smother his son with a pillow after hospital staff left them alone.

Further more, it is reported that, his statement read; 'I pressed a pillow on my son who was lying on his back for 15 minutes, I pressed the pillow without lifting it up. My son was struggling during that time. After he stopped moving, I lifted the pillow. Then I called for doctors to help to draw any suspicions away from me.' Toktas said again in his statement that he did not like his son from birth and confessed to suffocating his son to death with the pillow.
