Saudi Arabia has denied that it had a direct hand in Khashoggi's killing.
Turkish media has published gruesome details of the murder.
While that event took place before the October 2 killing of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the performance occurred while Canada was engaged in a high-profile diplomatic dispute with the kingdom.
Initially, the Saudi Government claimed that Jamal Khashoggi left the Saudi consulate in Istanbul unharmed, but later that the murder had been perpetrated by rogue agents, many of whom are close associates of Mohammad Bin Salman.
President Donald Trump has announced his intent to nominate retired general John Abizaid as USA ambassador to Saudi Arabia, marking the end of a almost two-year vacancy, the White House said. "Moreover, the Saudi intelligence officer was so shocked he said, 'Perhaps he took heroin, only someone who took heroin can do that'".
He added that the Saudi assassination squad covered the floor of the room with bags to prevent the leakage of blood while dismembering the victim.
The crown prince has come under scrutiny for having knowledge of the killing, which involved some members of his security entourage.
Speaking to journalists on board his plane while returning from World War I commemorations in Paris, Recep Tayyip Erdogan also said that Turkey had shared audio recordings relating to the killing with Saudi Arabia and other nations, including the United States, Britain, France, Germany and Canada.
The latest Saudi account of what took place failed to appease officials in Turkey, who insist the killing and its cover-up were carried out by the highest levels of government.

He stressed he had not heard the recordings himself.
Kherman said that Khashoggi's last words were: "I am suffocating, removed this bag, I am claustrophobic", right before passing away; noting that the strangulation lasted for seven minutes.
"There was an exchange of information in the field of intelligence", government spokesman Steffen Siebert told reporters.
Riyadh has sought to distance its leadership, particularly the crown prince, from Khashoggi's killing, despite a string of allegations implicating him in the killing.
An worldwide investigation into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is essential, Turkey's foreign minister said on Wednesday, and reiterated Turkish decisiveness to solve the murder.
"It would be a lie to say this hasn't created a malaise", Cirque spokesperson Marie-Hélène Lagacé said.
The employee said the decision to perform in Saudi Arabia contrasts with the 2016 cancellation of Cirque performances in North Carolina to protest a law limiting protections offered to the LGBTQ community.
