Turkish media reports that the plane belonged to businessman Huseyin Basaran.

Basaran's daughter Mina was supposedly onboard with some friends after a bachelorette party for her in the UAE.

Very sad story.... Quite unusual with jets crashing from cruise level, cabin decompression?

This is not exactly unheard of in witness reports of other accidents, and usually unrelated to reality. May be that there is some confirmation bias involved.

Flightradar24 was able to find altitude (but not position) data for the flight.

Looks like level flight at FL360 possibly followed by some sort of upset.

Upset, or emergency descent below the grid MORA. Looks fairly steady

This flight arrived in the Islamic Republic of Iran at 16:59 local time and suffered an accident at around 18:09 local time. According to the pilots of the pilot with the control center of the country, the pilot asked for a drop in height due to a technical problem, which during the reduction of height of 32 thousand feet, while the speed dropped, disappeared from the radar screen.

The picture is that of a Boeing Vertol (probably a CH-47) NOT the accident aircraft.

The Iranian Red Crescent Organization (IRCS) reported that it sent 10 rescue teams to the site of the crash of a Turkish private aircraft shortly after the incident.
The black box of a private Turkish passenger aircraft was found on Monday.
Search teams faced difficulties in reaching the place, because it was a mountainous region.
Local residents of the region found 8 bodies of 11 people aboard the aircraft in the Durk region of Anari Kiyar.
According to the Turkish media, the pilot in his last contact with the control demanded an urgent landing after the departure of the aircraft, and this request was registered.
