Turkey has been given permission to search the diplomatic post, an extraordinary development that shows the increasing global pressure the kingdom faces over Khashoggi'sdisappearance.
Saudi Arabia and Turkey have agreed to form a joint working team to investigate the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The sourcesaid police investigators were confident they already had enough forensic evidence from searches of the sewage network connected to the building.
At the same time, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on Saudi Arabia to prove its claim that Khashoggi left the consulate safely.
Writer Jamal Khashoggi, who had written critically about Prince Mohammed and the kingdom, vanished October 2 while on a trip to the consulate to get paperwork so he could be married to Cengiz. However, all nine apparently checked out the same day and returned to the airport, where they flew on to the UAE.
Turkish officials said Mr Khashoggi was killed on the premises and his body was then removed.
"Those who ask Turkish authorities where he is should first be asking 'how did this happen?'" Erdogan said during a press briefing in Hungary. 'We have to find out what happened.

Saudi Arabia to allow Turkey to search consulate for Jamal Khashoggi; State Department correspondent Rich Edson reports. So, nobody is surprised to see that a Saudi journalist, who did not support the crown prince, would be punished in the most violent way.
Saudi Arabia has insisted the journalist left the building safely.
While the Saudis have denied the accusations, an official with Turkey's AK Party told CNN Turk (the Turkish outlet of the American media agency), that there was evidence proving that Riyadh was involved in the alleged assassination. "It's not possible for us to stay silent regarding an incident like this", Erdogan said.
"That's how we are becoming in Saudi Arabia..."
Last Wednesday, the Turkish Foreign Ministrysummoned the Saudi ambassador to Ankara, Waleed Elkhereiji, to inquire about Khashoggi's situation.
"We call on the government of Saudi Arabia to support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation", he said.
Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry said the country was "open to co-operation" and a search of the building could go ahead as part of the investigation. She accused Saudi Arabia of "state terrorism" and called on the worldwide community to take action against the kingdom.
