A 13-year old Syrian Turkmen was beheaded in the southeastern Turkish province of Gaziantep for refusing to pay a man 50 Turkish lira (around $17), Turkish paper Hurriyet Daily reported on Monday.

The man - Cengiz P. - who is a recently-released convict drug addict, would collect a weekly wage from the young Syrian, Fahri Ali.

Cengiz P. reportedly slit the boy’s throat after the Ali refused giving up his monthly salary from working at a refrigerator repair shop.

He later threw the boy’s head into a well before fleeing the scene.

The police began a search and captured the drug addict late on March 26 with the suspected murder weapon, the governor’s office said in a statement.
