And on Monday, a Turkish official said Saudi Arabia sent two experts to Istanbul with the specific aim of covering up evidence after the murder.
"I'm unable to express my sorrow to hear about dissolving your body Jamal!" she wrote.
Officials from Saudi Arabia, the United States, Germany, France and Britain have listened to audio recordings related to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey's president said Saturday, in the first public acknowledgement of the existence of tapes of the slaying.
Khashoggi's body has not been found, more than a month after he was killed.
The recording allowed Turkish officials to drip feed increasingly gruesome details of Khashoggi's death to the press, ratcheting pressure up on Saudi Arabia, who initially claimed the journalist left the consulate alive.
An advisor to Erdogan, Yasin Aktay, suggested last week that the body may have been dissolved in acid.
Meanwhile, the reporter's sons have issued desperate pleas to find their father's body so that they can give him a proper burial and receive closure.

Video clips also showed an unnamed female White House intern unsuccessfully attempting to reclaim the microphone from Acosta. These are dark times and not only because of the pack of lying liars in charge. "This is a test for all of us", says Acosta.
Mohammed Bin Salman (MbS) and Saudi Arabia have changed their official position on what happened to the journalist in the face of global pressure. They include the 15 members of the alleged assassination squad. Riyadh said that 18 people had been arrested due to their suspected involvement in the incident, and that they would be put on trial in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia has presented an evolving narrative about what happened to Khashoggi, a Saudi citizen.
Erdoğan also said on that he may meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Paris during the commemorations.
Khashoggi was killed by a team of 15 Saudis nearly immediately after walking into his country's consulate in Istanbul to obtain documents he required to remarry.
"There's no need to distort this issue, they know for certain that the killer, or the killers, is among these 15 people".
"We have not been able to get answers from Saudi Arabia about who ordered the murder", the minister said, stressing that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is confident that King Salman Bin Abdulaziz did not order Khashoggi's murder.
