Thirty-five years ago, the honorary Turkish Consul General to Boston, Orhan Gunduz, was assassinated in Somerville. 
 
Gunduz owned a dress shop in Cambridge, which was bombed six weeks before he was assassinated while driving home from work. Both the bombing and his murder have never been solved.
 
Barry Hoffman is Pakistan's honorary consul general to Boston, and was a friend of Gunduz's. He spoke with WGBH's All Things Considered host Barbara Howard about Gunduz's life and death.
