In the historiography of the early modern Ottoman history there are many studies on violence, crime, and criminals. These studies have generally dealt with various cases such as accusations of assault, homicide, prostitution, rape, as well as searches for criminals, delivery of suspects to court, and meting out of punishments. In this paper, I will focus on only one of the manyhomicide cases from records of the kadı court of Bursa for 1560. The possible innocence or guilt of suspects will be discussed as well as what they objected to as taking into consideration Gypsies in the process of investigation of their purported crimes.
