Five suspects identified by Turkish police in the Jamal Khashoggi disappearance case have been linked to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman or his security detail, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

One of the suspects was Mohammed's travel companion, and was seen on trips with him in Paris, Madrid, Houston, Boston, and the United Nations. Three others have ties to Mohammed's security detail and a fifth person is a forensic doctor "who holds senior positions in the Saudi Interior Ministry," per the Times.

Mohammad has denied his Kingdom knew anything about what happened to Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist who went missing Oct. 2, following what was supposed to be a routine stop at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

Khashoggi was a Saudi dissident who wrote for The Washington Post and has been critical of the Kingdom. He was a U.S. resident but remained a Saudi citizen at the time of his disappearance. Turkish authorities have accused the Saudi government of murdering Khashoggi, but Saudi officials are reportedly preparing a report that will acknowledge Khashoggi's death was the result of an interrogation that went wrong, but an operation carried out with clearance and transparency.

According to the Times, Turkish officials have proof a team of 15 Saudi agents flew in Oct. 2, killed Khashoggi, dismembered him and flew out the same day – the planes they came in on were private jets chartered "by a Saudi company with close ties to" Mohammed and Interior ministry. All 15 suspects are Saudi security officers, government employees, or intelligence agents.
